Cheesecake Factory’s Chicken Madeira Copycat Recipe


Chicken Madeira
Most people go to Cheesecake Factory for the cheesecake, but I go for the Chicken Madeira.  Hands down my favorite menu item at the Factory. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Tiramasu Cheesecake, but in my opinion nothing beats the Chicken Madeira!


Juicy chicken and mushrooms in a madeira cream sauce under melty cheese and asparagus.  You can pair it with either pasta (el dente) or mashed potatoes.  If I had to chose between the two, i would prefer the pasta over mashed potatoes.  For me I am always looking for low carb sides, so I suggest Cauliflower fried rice or some roasted brussel sprouts.   This creamy Chicken Madeira is a copycat recipe of the most popular menu item at the Cheesecake Factory.  Once you take a bite, you will know why it is their most popular recipe!  It’s my favorite, it will be yours too!

    • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed (5 ounces)
    • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

    • 2 cups beef broth
    • 1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed
    • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese
