Don't be thrown by the hoity-toity sounding name here. Our Chicken au Fromage (chicken "with cheese") is a healthy take on a French dish of sautéed chicken topped with a creamy mushroom-Parmesan cheese sauce. Do we have your attention now? It's served alongside crisp, buttery broccoli, and did we mention the creamy mushroom-Parmesan sauce? And did we mention it's healthy? Chicken au Fromage? More like Chicken-oh-so tasty!

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut mushrooms into 1/4” slices. Cut any large broccoli pieces into bite-sized florets. Halve grape tomatoes. Zest and halve lemon. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season each with 1/2 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken and Mushrooms

    Heat a medium pan over medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan and cook 4-5 minutes on one side, or until deep brown. Flip chicken, add mushrooms to pan, and season mushrooms with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook, stirring mushrooms occasionally, 5-7 minutes, or until mushrooms are browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Transfer chicken to a plate, tent loosely with foil, and set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Broccoli

    While chicken is cooking, heat broccoli and 1/4 cup water in a second medium pan over medium-high heat. When water boils, cover and cook 2 minutes, or until broccoli is bright green. Uncover and cook 2 minutes, or until broccoli is cooked, but still a little crisp and water has evaporated. Remove from heat and toss with tomatoes, 1/2 tsp. lemon juice (to taste), and butter. Season to taste with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper, cover, and set aside.

  4. 4

    Finish the Sauce

    In pan containing mushrooms, add evaporated milk, 1/4 cup water, and Parmesan (reserve a pinch for garnish) and cook, stirring constantly, 3-5 minutes, or until cheese melts and sauce thickens slightly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. 5

    Plate the Dish

    Spoon sauce on a plate and arrange broccoli and tomatoes next to sauce. Place a chicken breast over sauce and spoon some sauce over chicken. Garnish with lemon zest and reserved Parmesan. Serve immediately.
