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!

    I made this last night for Husband and I…there is nothing left and I will make it again tonight. This recipe is magnificent. Husband cannot eat garlic so I used 1/8 cup of dried thyme instead.
    Other than that, I followed the recipe to the letter. The first time I try a recipe, I follow exact and the second time I fix it. Other than the omission of garlic, I stuck to the plan. We were both delighted and ate every single bite…over steamed white rice.

    Thank you Alyssa!

    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!
