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!

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I thank you. My friends thank you. My family thanks you. My unborn children thank you.

    This is so good it almost brings a tear to my eye.

    1. It will have a different taste to it and it may not have the thickness of a mushroom but that is a great idea if that is okay with you! XOXO

  2. This recipe knocked our socks off! I made a few small tweaks based on my cooking style which I’ll share just in case anyone else wants to try.

    Cut the chicken into uniform sized pieces after flattening with a meat hammer.

    Cook chicken 3 to 4 minutes on one side in a cast iron skillet, then flip and COVER so the liquid stays in the skillet. Cook another 3 to 4 minutes until cooked thoroughly and set aside as the recipe states and cover in a bowl.

    Add mushrooms, garlic and a pad of butter to the chicken liquid and cook down until the the mushrooms are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. Add the mushrooms to the bowl of chicken and cover.

    Add the sauce ingredients but DO NOT ADD SALT. Cook in the same skillet so it absorbs the chicken and buttery mushroom garlic flavors left behind.

    Once the sauce is thick, return the chicken and mushrooms to the sauce, evenly coat and serve immediately topped with a tiny bit of parsley (italian or curly) and a sprinkle of shredded parmesan cheese which will add more than enough saltiness.

    Don’t be afraid to double / triple the entire recipe because people WILL want seconds! 🙂

  3. Dish didn’t look anything, not even a little bit like picture. If you love Alfredo you’ll love this. My Alfredo loving family members thought it was very good.

  4. I love this! This proves that mushroom is another amazing and indeed
    a magical plant. Thank you for sharing those mouth-watering recipe. Will surely give it a try.

  5. this is truly a staple i my home. and we have even modified it and have used shirmp and even italian sausage. i make this at least twice a month.

  6. HI Wanting to try this out. However it says serve immediately does that mean that I can’t have leftovers???

    1. OH Yes! You can have leftovers but it is best to serve right away because the sauce will cool off and separate. Hope that helps clarify. You will love this chicken! XOXO

  7. I’ve never been a huge fan of mushrooms, but my boyfriend and his daughter looove them so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. AND OH MY LANTA WHAT A HIT! They loooved it and so did I! I’ve made it twice already in the last two weeks. This will definitely be a new go to meal!

    1. That is awesome and so sweet of you to make them a meal that you didn’t love to begin with! Thanks so much for sharing! I am so glad that it was a huge hit! XOXO

  8. So delicious!! The sauce is amazing! I made it with rice and poured the sauce all over everything. I can’t wait to make it again! Thank you for sharing!

  9. One other thing, make this with thinly sliced chicken and you’ll feel like you’re at an expensive restaurant. it tastes so good! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  10. I made this and it tastes awesome but 1 cup of broth took forrever to cook down. Maybe my heat wasnt high enough?>

  11. Alyssa, this meal was terrific. Thank you! It will definitely be a “go to” meal for my family. Keep up the wonderful recipes!

  12. This was absolutely delicious I made garlic roasted potatoes with it . My kids loved it . Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  13. A great big thank you for this super simple but super yummy dish! I don’t usually cook so I’m beyond happy that my whole family loved this…Especially my mother-in-law!!! =D
    * I did add some dried parsley and omitted the flour since the sauce was thick enough for me.

    1. AWE! That is too kind! Thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciate it! I am so happy everyone loved it!! XOXO
