Steps to make Easy Baked Cheesy Mushroom Chicken.

How Long Does Baked Chicken bake for at 375 Degrees F?

  • Thaw frozen chicken slowly in your refrigerator, or thaw it faster by putting it in a leak-proof package or plastic bag and submerging in cold tap water.
  • Bake chicken breast in an oven proof dish at 375 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink inside..
  • Use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature is 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Do you cover baked chicken with foil?

You don’t have to cover this dish with foil. But I do cover most baked chicken with foil. Because the chicken is thinly sliced and you brown it on each side before, it takes a shorter amount of time to cook. If the chicken is thicker and takes longer to cook, the aluminum foil helps seal in the moisture and cook the chicken evenly.

What is the internal temperature of a chicken breast?

Generally I bake chicken at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 40 minutes. Please check out my very large Internal Temperature Chart for Cooking Meats and Baked Goods. To be sure that the chicken breasts are cooked thoroughly, use a instant digital Cooking or Meat Thermometer for the proper temperature of 165 degrees F.

    This recipe was extremely easy. I was worried it would be bland. I followed it exactly, and it was very flavorful and tasty. I ate the leftovers today, and they were just as good if not better!

    This was quick and easy to make. LOVED IT. Delicious and it will be a regular dinner choice. Can’t wait to try some of your other recipes!

  3. I made this recipe. I added sun dried tomatoes in the mushroom sauce. It added a little acid to cut through the richness of the cheese. It was awesome. Definitely a keeper.

  5. Can you tell me how thinly sliced the chicken is? From the pictures I wouldn’t have guessed they were sliced at all. Just want to get it right!!! Are they sliced in half or in strips like tenders? Thanks so much, this looks delicious

      I made tonight I think it just meant thin chicken breast – you could pound them out – I didn’t do anything to mine just cooked them longer in the frying pan until almost cooked through about 150 F then they finished to 170 F in the oven – it was good (I did add about 1 TBSP Dijon mustard to the mushroom sauce
