Before cooking this dish, I want to have a few words about consuming portobello mushrooms. Not only is it scrumptious and versatile in cooking, but it also has some significant positive impact on your health. Portobello mushrooms contain a lot of water which makes them low in energy density and are a good source for supplying fiber for your health.

Because they are low in energy density, they don’t provide many calories. Therefore, eating portobello mushrooms can help you maintain your weight or even lose it. Plus, it’s also a great source of protein and B vitamins which are necessary for metabolism and maintain your liver, skin, eyes, and hair in good condition.


In their unprocessed form, almost every type of mushroom contains traces of carcinogenic chemicals. Portobello mushrooms have the same toxin, hydrazine, while shiitake mushrooms contain a naturally occurring formaldehyde. Both compounds are heat-sensitive, and when exposed to heat, they disappear. You might think nothing of eating a few slices of button mushrooms fresh, yet cooked mushrooms have anti-cancer properties.

Portobello mushroom sauce ingredients

  • 5-6 oz condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • Soybean oil
  • 8 oz Portobello mushrooms
  • All-purpose flour
  • Water
  • white pepper (To taste)
  • Dried and coarsely ground garlic (To taste)
  • Salt (To taste)
  • White sugar (To taste)

Portobello Mushroom sauce instruction

Step 1: Sauté portobello mushrooms

  • Slice the mushrooms into the small and thin pieces.
  • Pour some oil or butter into a sauce pan and turn on the stove in medium heat. (We highly recommend you to use butter to enhance the appealing fragrance of the portobello mushrooms.)
  • Once the oil is hot, put the sliced mushrooms into the saucepan for about 2 or 3 minutes. While waiting for that, move to step 2.

Step 2: Mix mushroom cream with water

  • Prepare a large bowl to contain the mixture.
  • Respectively, pour just a little bit of warm water (It won’t work if you add too much) and the condensed cream of mushroom soup into that bowl and mix those until it is well-combined.

Step 3: Put the mushroom cream mixture and other ingredients into the saucepan

After the mushrooms are being cooked for 2-3 minutes in the saucepan, you will need to add in flour and continuously stir for 1-2 minutes. Be careful not to brown.

Then, you add the mushroom soup mixture, pepper, garlic, salt, and sugar until it’s all combined.

Now you’re done with the sauce which is the essence of the dish. Moving on to the next process, we will cook the chicken, then we are able to enjoy our work.

Step 1: Grill your chicken breasts

It’s not something too complicated and I think we don’t have to go particularly into this step, you just need to grill the chicken as you like.

Step 2: Let the jack cheese leak into the chicken meat

You first need to make some slits on your chicken meat, then stuff jack cheese into each slit. In the next step, you have two different ways to do this step:

  • Using your stove: Pour some oil or butter into a nonstick pan and put it on the stove with medium heat. Place the chicken breasts which are stuffed with jack cheese in each of it slit. Then, wait until the cheese melted and get into the chicken.
  • Using your oven: Place the cheese stuffed chicken on a oven tray and set the oven with medium heat to slowly melt the cheese. You need to be careful to not overcook the grilled chicken.

Step 3: It’s time to eat

After the jack cheese is melted and goes into the chicken meat, it’s time to use the portobello mushroom sauce we’ve successfully made in the previous section. All you need to do is pour the entire mushroom sauce on the chicken. After that, you will be mouthwatering already.

But, hold on, in order to blast the taste you will need to put some other ingredients: chopped parsley, pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese

Cooking tips

  1. When cooking, you should use butter instead of soybean oil. It’s because butter will be better in enhancing the flavors than soybean oil.
  2. How to choose mushrooms: Avoid picking up mushrooms when it’s a little bit yellow and lacks a ring. Because they’re might be poisonous mushrooms. Pay extra attention to that criteria when buying mushrooms and always try to buy fresh mushrooms which are dry and do not have any dark spot.
  3. How to wash the mushrooms: Take portobello mushrooms that are firm, sturdy, and free of dark spot. Take them in a perforated bowel. One by one, wash with cold water. Dirt may be removed using a finger. Using a paper towel, dry them. Please don’t wash all of them at once; if you do, the hard flesh will fall apart.
