Chicken Gloria or Chicken a la Gloria is a comforting chicken and mushroom casserole. A super quick to prepare delicious and mouthwatering casserole dish perfect for a weeknight ready in 1 hour from start to finish.
Chicken Gloria or Chicken a la Gloria is an old chicken casserole dish that many of us have grown up with. Not sure who Gloria is or where the origin of this dish comes from but it’s a favorite of mine. I love creamy, cheesy casseroles like this, that are easy to make. This recipe is a reader favorite on my blog.
I’m talking tender chicken smothered in a creamy mushroom sauce then topped with cheese and baked to perfection. What’s not to love about this incredible dish?
I made this Chicken A La Gloria and it was SOOO good! Everyone (the kids too) went back for seconds! It’s a winner winner chicken dinner. Easy to make too!
3 skinless boneless chicken breasts, trimmed and filleted in half lengthwise
1/3 cup of flour
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of butter
1 (8 oz) container of sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup of sherry wine
1 small can of condenced cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup whole milk
6 slices of Muenster cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350F.
Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper, dredge lightly in flour to coat both sides. Shake off excess.
Add oil to frying pan and brown chicken in batches on both sides. You don’t need to cook the chicken completely. It will finish cooking in the oven. Transfer the chicken to a 9×13-inch baking dish.
Add the butter to the frying pan and let it melt over medium high heat. Add mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and brown mushrooms until golden. Then add the sherry wine and cook for another minute or two. Add the creamy mushroom soup and milk and mix well.
Pour sauce over the chicken breasts, cover with foil and bake in oven for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and top each piece of chicken with one slice of Muenster cheese. You can fold the cheese in half if it is too wide for the breast.
Place chicken back in oven uncovered and broil for 1-2 minutes to brown the cheese. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
Top with chopped fresh parsley and serve.
