HOLY YUM!! Brace yourselves for all future recipes having creamy parmesan rice. 😉 This meal has our family obsessed. Like I am talking every single person in the family licked their plate clean. The baby, the toddler, the picky eater, everyone couldn’t get enough of this dish.
Dare I say this is the best one pot meal that we have ever had??
We also love this One Pot Chicken Florentine, but I think that the creamy parmesan rice is what made us fall in love. This dish couldn’t be easier to make. You brown the chicken, dump the rice, stir in some parmesan cheese and heavy cream, and voila! Dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.
How do you make Creamy Parmesan Chicken with Mushroom Rice?
You start by adding oil to a medium skillet or pot add in seasonings and brown your chicken pieces. As soon as they are brown, you add the rice, mushrooms, and chicken broth. Let it simmer for about 15 minutes or until liquid has absorbed and then stir in your heavy cream and parmesan cheese.
What can I serve as a side dish?
Since this dish already includes rice and mushrooms, a simple side salad and bread make the perfect addition.
You guys have got to put this one on the menu this week! I promise the entire family is going to go crazy for it. And the best part is that it is all made in one dish so little clean up is required on your end. It is a win-win situation for everyone and I know you will love it as much as we did!
