"This has been a family favorite of ours for many years and is a sure way to make sure my teenage girls make it to the dinner table. Worth any prep time! Serve over rice. If your family are hearty eaters like mine, this will only serve 4."

  1. Whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, water, and Italian dressing mix in a bowl. Stir in the chicken; allow chicken to marinate while preparing the remaining ingredients.
  2. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion and bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove the the chicken from the marinade using a slotted spoon, and transfer to the skillet; reserve the remaining marinade. Cook and stir the chicken until no longer pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the mushrooms; cook and stir until they begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add tomato and reserved marinade, then sprinkle cheese on top. Do not stir. Cover and simmer on low heat until cheese is melted and chicken is tender, about 20 minutes. Allow the dish to rest for a few minutes before serving.

simple, quick, & tasted great! will be making this dish again! ate it with couscous & baked asparagus. yummy!


Hi, this is my recipe. Can't believe it is finally posted here after all this time. Thank you for the positive reviews. I have to agree with the comments about the cooking times. I let it saute 3-4 mins. after adding the tomato. Also, don't know where the crimini came from, I usually use baby bella or white button. Also, I read another review commenting of being bland and the chicken being dry. I have to say after making this so many times that the taste of the marinade is goiing to determine the taste of this dish so be sure to use a good vinegar and I think 1/4 cup of water is too much, the recipe was posted with 2 tablespoons of water. Quality of the chicken will determine if it is dry.


This is a good jumping off recipe for an easy skillet meal. 4 stars from Sparky and three stars from me. There was a slight lack of flavor overall to us. I might marinate the chicken all day or even 24 hours to see if that jazzed up the chicken. The other problem I had was that it was too long of a cooking time for the chicken breast cubes (maybe 15 minutes total cooking time instead) and they were very dry.(I should have known better) I would sub wine for the water in the future and I would definitely add more seasonings and fresh garlic. We tried it with three different cheeses on top and our favorite was fresh mozzarella. Overall, an easy and healthy meal served with a salad and crusty bread. Thanks for sharing.
