I have been pretty obsessed with creamy delicious skillet meals lately. But my family LOVES them. I always have most of these ingredients on hand. I buy chicken and heavy cream in bulk from Costco and I have a delicious real ready in under 30 minutes.

This Creamy Garlic Mushroom  Chicken became one of our favorites. You guys are going to LOVE the creamy sauce over the chicken. It is full of flavor and is thick and creamy and so delicious. This is so good that it tastes like it came straight from a restaurant!

I am not a huge mushroom fan, but if you stuff them, or put them in a sauce I absolutely love them! These mushrooms added a new texture and awesome flavor to the dish.

I mean just look at all of that creamy delicious garlic mushroom goodness!

    Added about 1/4 cup of sauvignon blanc and some Italian seasoning and this was perfect over pasta! I used evaporated milk as I didn’t have heavy cream and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

    This is so good! It does need some acid, so i added lemon (after removing from heat). I also added extra mushrooms and spinach.

    I absolutely love this recipe!! Found it one night when I was looking for recipes to use my leftover chicken breast with. Family adores this recipe as it’s super delicious! Usually paired with garlic mashed potatoes, green beans and rolls! Definitely can’t go wrong with this!

  4. I made this awesome recipe but added my touch. I season chicken prior to cooking. Added extra heavy cream and tablespoon of butter. At the end I added capers and spinach. Absolutely awesome.

  5. This recipe has been in my rotation for several months now. Simple, elegant and delicious. I’ve made it for friends, kids, everyone loves it. I’ve made it with milk, left out the spinach (accidentally) and it holds up. It reheats and freezes well. I love it!!!

    OMG, this dish was AMAZING! All I did differently was salt and pepper the chicken while it was cooking (not much, a sprinkle) and the same with the mushrooms/garlic. The sauce I did exactly as described.

    I fixed some angel hair pasta for it to go over and it was, IMO, restaurant quality. I’d pay for this dish and be happy.

    I needed a quick and easy chicken dish I could triple for a meal train delivery. The family loved it! I made it tonight for my family and they raved! It is so tasty and easy. Thank you for a great recipe!
