Georgia Chicken

This is one of Paula Deen's recipes. We really really like it! It's a good everyday recipe. Tonight I made it for the boys and I with some mashed potatoes. So good! I often forget the mozzarella. I like it just as well that way.
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter (I've substituted olive oil before successfully, but it does change the flavor some)
4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons minced shallots (I usually use yellow onions)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 ounces grated mozzarella cheese

Melt butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms and shallots and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook 10 minutes. Add chicken and cook 10 minutes on each side, or until tender. Transfer chicken to platter and sprinkle with grated cheese. Top with mushroom mixture. Cook and let stand 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
