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. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 5 stars
    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!

  5. Omg what a fabulous recipe!!! I loved the taste of the mushrooms! A quick go to when time is short. This is a must must try!

  6. Another great recipe! Thank you for sharing this one. I can’t wait to try this at home. My family will surely love this since they love mushrooms because it is healthy. Looking forward to another delicious meal of mushrooms.

    1. 5 stars
      no kidding right .. i made this yesterday and me and my lady couldnt stop for double timers!

  8. OMG this was soooo good! I am on WW so I used the 1/3 less fat cream cheese and substituted fat free half and half for the heavy cream to keep the point values down. My only regret is that I didn’t double the recipe. I won’t make that mistake again! I’ll prob add some spinach and/or asparagus next time to boost the nutrients. Thank you for sharing this, it’s my new favorite!!

    1. I am in the process of adding nutritional information to each recipe. I will have them done soon. I like to use for any nutritional information.

  9. I made this tonight and it was beyond delicious!!!! My super picky 6 yr old even ate it up! Definitely going to be making it again

    1. The spinach is optional. You are welcome to add the spinach after the cream sauce is made and let it soak in with the chicken. Hope that helps!
