Pecorino-Crusted Chicken with Mushroom Salad

from Bon Appétit

Ingredients

  • 1 pound button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, torn
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino or Parmesan

Preparation

  • Toss first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Season generously with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature, tossing often, until mushrooms soften, 20—30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 500°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil; set a wire rack inside. Season chicken with salt and pepper; place on rack. Spread mayonnaise on chicken; sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake for 5 minutes. Turn on broiler. Broil until chicken is cooked through and cheese is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Serve with salad.
