  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 4 (4-ounce) chicken breasts, boneless, skinless

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large, nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil and brown the chicken breasts for about 2 minutes per side. Place the chicken in a baking dish and bake for 45 minutes.
