18 oz Raw Chicken Breasts - should yield 12 oz cooked
1/4 tsp Salt or garlic salt (Optional)
1/8 tsp Pepper (Optional)
1 tsp olive oil
For the Sauce:
1 Cup Mushrooms

2 wedges Light Queso & Chipotle Laughing Cow cheese
1/4 tsp dried rosemary or 1/2 tbsp fresh rosemary
Parsley, chopped or Cilantro- chopped (optional garnish)
Season the chicken with garlic salt, salt and/or pepper.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tsp olive oil over medium heat.
