Well, tonight is one of those nights where all 3 boys are going in three different directions.  Normally on nights like this if my husband was out of town I would just run by good ol Chic fil A and call it a night, but my husband is in town.  So, I am going to try and get my act together and make dinner ahead of time.  I know gasp!  Sounding a lot like a cupcake mom, but I will not have even 10 minutes in between my chauffeur shifts to make dinner.  So I am putting on my apron and pearls and getting started.
This recipe I have been using for so many years and if you are a friend of mine that has been in need of a meal I can guarantee you have received this in your cooler on your porch.  It’s so easy and can be dished out in shifts if thats how your family eats with kids that are all over the place on weeknights.  Just pull out of the oven and leave on the stove covered in foil and eat when you have time.

Chicken with White Wine and Mushrooms

This is one of those dump and bake recipes. So easy, fast to put together and healthy! The family will love it. It is also great to take to friends who are sick, had a baby, home from the hospital or grieving a loved one.

Servings 6


  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 Cup Olive oil
  • 4 Stalks celery, chopped
  • 1/2-3/4 Cup Shredded carrots (you can find these in the grocery already shredded)
  • 4 Garlic cloves, minced (use one of those garlic presses-so much easier and your hands don't smell like garlic)
  • 1 Small onion, chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, melted
  • 1 lb. Fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Parsley, chopped
  • 1-16oz Can Stewed, sliced tomatoes

  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 350°

  2. Place trimmed chicken in a 9"x13" baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.

  3. In a saute pan, heat oil and add garlic, celery, carrots and onions.  Cook over medium-high heat until onions are translucent.  About 5 minutes.

  4. In a large bowl, melt butter in microwave.  Combine remaining ingredients and mixture from saute pan to melted butter. Pour over chicken.
