These Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms are the perfect hearty appetizer for your next party!

Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Having a warm, hearty appetizer for a party is always a good idea and in my opinion stuffed mushrooms are about as good as it gets! I love how versatile they are and fairly easy to make once you get the hang of it.

This version starts with ground chicken (or turkey), garlic, onion, and a few spices. Cook that down in a skillet and then add in the cheese! I like Gruyere but anything melty and delicious would work great. Emmental and Jarlsberg would be good substitutes for the Gruyere.

There are two options when it comes to the mushrooms. You can use normal white button mushrooms or the baby bella mushrooms!

I went with the baby bella mushrooms this time around.

Mushrooms ready to be stuffed

Really stuff the mushrooms with the chicken mixture and top them all with some breadcrumbs. If you’re going low carb, then skip the breadcrumbs.

After baking, these Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms should be golden brown on top and juicy and tender throughout.

I love these as an appetizer, but if I’m being honest, I can absolutely make a meal out of them with a small side salad or something. They are that good!

Enjoy!
