Serves 4 (serving size: 1 stuffed mushroom)

Not only is this loaded fork-and-knife entrée easy and cheesy, it's customizable, too. Make it your own with any produce or herbs you already have in your fridge. If you have the time, you could make your own pesto


How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Arrange onion slices on pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly charred. Remove pan from heat; coarsely chop onions.

Step 3

Combine chopped onions, pesto, oil, salt, pepper, and chicken in a medium bowl; toss well. Divide mixture evenly among mushrooms, pressing gently to fill each cap.

Step 4

Return pan to medium-high. Coat with cooking spray. Gently transfer mushrooms to pan; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until mushrooms are heated through and tender. Sprinkle cheese evenly over chicken mixture. Transfer pan to oven; broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts and begins to brown.

Easy, not your ordinary Monday night dinner!

I made these and they were really good. I did not make the pesto, but used a store brought brand which was in olive oil so I did not add any into the stuffing mixture. I also warmed the shredded chicken in a little chicken broth before seasoning and adding the other ingredients. I also used a little evoo on the tops of the mushrooms before adding to grill pan. I used a mixture of parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Served with a salad. Delicious! I took a pic, may post. I am not a cook, but this recipe made me look like I knew what I was doing.

Great and easy

This was excellent and simple to make. Didn't add the extra olive oil and didn't miss it. Just make sure to cook the onions all the way unless you want some crunch at the end.

Great Dinner
