Why you’ll love it
Creamy chicken recipes are some of my readers’ favorites, and it’s easy to see why. I like to keep them simple with no fancy ingredients, and this creamy mushroom chicken is no exception. It’s ready in just 30 minutes for an upgraded family meal.

Juicy mushrooms and chicken just go together so well, and pairing them with a garlic cream sauce takes it over the top. Pantry essentials are transformed into a winning dish that’s special enough for company, but go ahead and eat it any old weeknight!

Chicken – as always, my trick for tender chicken is cutting the chicken breasts in half lengthwise so they cook faster and don’t get all tough. You could also pound them thin if you prefer.
Flour – for dredging. The reason we use it is to get a nice crust on the surface of the chicken.
Olive oil and butter – for sautéing and making the base of the sauce
Mushrooms – cremini (or baby bellas), white mushrooms, or whatever you’ve got or the store has will be fine
Italian seasoning – it’s a convenient mix of fragrant dried herbs that’s all in a single jar
Garlic – use even more than suggested if you’re a garlic afficionado. I like to mince it with this garlic press so that peeling the cloves isn’t needed.
Chicken broth – to infuse savory flavor into the sauce
Lemon juice – a touch of acidity adds brightness
Dijon mustard – my tried-and-true way to add extra depth of flavor to sauces. It doesn’t make it taste like mustard, so don’t worry about that!

🔸 Ingredients:

  • 8 oz (225g) of fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) of chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons of dry white wine (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

🔸 Instructions:

In a large skillet, melt the butter and olive oil over medium heat.

Add the sliced mushrooms and minced garlic.

Sauté them until the mushrooms are tender and lightly browned, about 5-7 minutes.

If you’re using white wine, pour it into the skillet and stir, allowing it to cook off for a couple of minutes.

Pour in the heavy cream and chicken or vegetable broth, and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until it thickens and reduces slightly.

Stir occasionally.

Season with salt, pepper, and fresh thyme leaves.

Adjust the seasonings to taste.

Once the sauce reaches your desired consistency, remove it from heat.

Serve your creamy mushroom sauce over your favorite dish – pasta, steak, chicken, or anything you like.

Garnish with fresh parsley for a pop of color.

Now, you have a luxurious mushroom sauce that will take your meal to the next level! Share this recipe with your friends and family to spread the love for good food.
