3/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 ounces shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
4 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed
3 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 3/4 cup)
1. Preheat broiler to high.
2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Arrange onion slices on pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly charred. Remove pan from heat; coarsely chop onions.
3. Combine chopped onions, pesto, oil, salt, pepper, and chicken in a medium bowl; toss well. Divide mixture evenly among mushrooms, pressing gently to fill each cap.

Sprinkle cheese evenly over chicken mixture. Transfer pan to oven; broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts and begins to brown. (recipe: MyRecipes.com)
