Creamy Parmesan Herb Mushroom Chicken

We celebrated my little girl’s birthday a few days ago.  She is three!!  It is crazy how fast they grow up.  This has been such a fun age and we all adore her.  She wanted to have a Moana party of course.  She talked all week about her “birt-day” and Moana.  So the day finally arrived and she was so excited.   We had her party at our neighborhood pool and clubhouse.   Despite a few birthday mishaps of the cake tipping over in the car or the balloons getting stuck in her bedroom fan, it came together perfectly! A fun time was had by all and it was so fun to watch her on her special day.  Now just one more week until we add a new little girl to the family!

Since I am at the end of my pregnancy, life is hard.  It’s getting hard to walk, sleep, and keep up with everything.  But I am all about an easy 30 minute restaurant quality meal for my family.  And let me tell ya.  If you don’t make this meal you are MISSING out!

This creamy parmesan sauce.  It is absolute perfection.  But I absolutely love when fresh herbs are added to give it amazing flavor.  Thyme is one of my all time favorites so of course it was included in the line up.  Oregano, basil, and fresh parsley also made their debut making it incredible!  The sauce thickened up and coated the chicken perfectly.

I just served mine with some freshly steamed asparagus, but this would also be amazing served over rice or pasta.  This chicken is so incredible that my family is already begging me to make it again.

You will love this one just as much as we did and regret not making it!  I promise!

  4. Looks good! Quick question. are you using a stainless steel pan, a cast iron skillet or a non-stick pan of some sort? Thanks.

    • In this picture and when cooking this chicken I used the STAUB cookware. It is an enameled cast iron and bakeware pan. A stainless steel pan or a non-stick pan would work great too! Hope that helps!!
