This Chicken Gloria casserole is made from scratch using fresh mushrooms, cream, garlic, sherry, and deliciously melty cheese on top. It’s total comfort food!
What you’ll need
Chicken – we’re using three large chicken breasts cut lengthwise
Salt & pepper and flour – for seasoning the chicken and dredging
Olive oil and butter – for pan frying the chicken and mushrooms
Mushrooms – I chose cremini mushrooms for their meaty texture and earthy flavor. You could also sub in cut-up portobellos.
Garlic – we’re using two cloves of garlic, but feel free to use more
Sherry – dry sherry is best here
Cream – heavy cream yields the most luxurious sauce. I don’t recommend using anything with a lower fat content since it’ll be thinner, could curdle, and won’t taste nearly as good
Cheese – Muenster is the classic choice, but if you can’t find it, use Swiss Cheese, Gruyère, Fontina, Provolone, or even something like mozzarella. Basically, any mild-tasting easy melting cheese will work.
