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.

    This was absolutely delicious and very easy to make! I used Better than Bouillon chicken base, white mushrooms and 10% cream and it turned out really well. This will be a regular dish in our household. would be nice served with a side salad or steamed asparagus to lighten it up.

    a good weekday standby but short on the “wow” factor. it is certainly easy to make and has a basic good taste but unfortunately when i read the headline I was expecting more. I browned the mushrooms before adding the rice and stock to give a bit more (as well as adding garlic powder). I’ll work with this some more – the base is good!

    Made as instructed and there was too much Italian seasoning for our taste. Will cut in half next time and maybe add some garlic or …. ? next time.

  4. I’ve made this several times now and it’s one of my go to easy recipes. I love using deboned rotisserie chicken, which makes it super easy. This is truly delicious. Thank you.

    1. I have some leftover rotisserie chicken and was looking for recipes to use it when I stumbled on this one!

      Did you cook the mushroom before adding the chicken and the rice?

    I don’t get home until almost 7pm during the week due to my job so I am always looking for quick easy recipes that taste delicious. I tried this recipe last night and both me and my husband went back for seconds and had to refrain from eating it all! 10/10 I will be working this recipe into dinner rotation. I did however add half a cup of shredded Parmesan instead of 1/4 for a more cheesy flavor but it was incredible! Highly recommend. 🙂

    Winner Winner!
    Followed exactly except used boneless skinless chicken thighs because that’s what I had. And doubled it in my Dutch oven pot. Seriously SO good. Great leftover too! I agree with another post, it’s like eating risotto but without all the work! Will absolutely make again.
