I've been making something similar to this for a year. I marinate the chicken in Italian dressing (tonight it was balsamic vinaigrette) and the my husband grills it up. We top it with mushrooms that are sauteed with butter and shallots and some crispy bacon (or panchetta). Top the chicken with the mushroom mixture and cheese! Yummy!
