Smothered Chicken

Yeah - A healthy chicken dinner that incorporates the word "smothered" and cheese? I'll take it!! The kids, of course, weren't super happy about the peppers and onions that topped it, but we just had them slide them off onto our plates and they loved the chicken...

8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1 large onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper - to taste

In an 8x8 pan add the grilled chicken. Slather chicken evenly with dijon mustard. Take warm vegetables and top chicken. Cover vegetables and chicken with reduced fat cheese.
