Chicken Mozzarella Bake

I love this chicken. I cant describe just how amazing it is. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to prepare it plus 20 to 25 minutes baking time. Chicken breasts are lightly browned then baked with mushrooms, sliced tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. A quick and delicious chicken recipe, with boneless chicken breasts and cheese. The wine adds extra flavor, but chicken broth will work as well.
