I recently found this recipe on allrecipes.com. It is easy to make, especially if you need to make a meal in less than 30 minutes. I made a small change to the recipe. Instead of pounding the chicken breasts, I sliced each breast width wise into several long pieces.
Paprika Chicken with Mushrooms and Onions
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 tsp paprika
salt and pepper
1/4 cup butter
1 onion, sliced into thin rings
1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
Pound chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thickness. Sprinkle both sides of each chicken breast liberally with paprika, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Arrange chicken breasts in the pan, cover, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn chicken breasts over, and layer the thinly sliced onions and mushrooms on top of the chicken. Cover, and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove lid, and mix onions and mushrooms into the butter sauce. Reduce heat to low, and cook uncovered Serves 4.

|Chicken has been cut width wise into long pieces.|
|Butter needs to be melted before chicken is added to the pan.|
|Chicken is first partially cooked in the pan before the onions and mushrooms are added.|
|Chopping onions without tearing can be a challenge.|
|I sometimes buy sliced mushrooms from Costco.|
