Asiago Mushroom Chicken

Nothing gets boring faster day after day than boneless, skinless chicken breasts. My solution: sauces, and this is one of my favorites! Combining the umami of the mushrooms with the smooth tang of the cheese, it’s creamy, flavorful, and very easy to make. And while the recipe calls solely for Asiago, I frequently use the Italian blend of shredded Provolone, Asiago, Romano, and Parmesan I always have on hand in my fridge. Because cheese!
