Can I get a hallelujah for air conditioning? Our air conditioning went out in the place where we are living now and of course it is the week before the big move. As if packing and getting ready to move isn’t torture enough, I have had to do it in 85 degrees. Gah! It took 3 days for them to get it replaced and working properly. And today is the first day that it is working. You better believe I have that baby cranked down to 68. 😉

Since life is crazy busy I still realize that my kids need to eat. You can only order Little Caesars so much and eat out before you are sick of it. My kids LOVE when I take the time to cook a good meal.

Skillet meals are our favorite lately. They are ready in just 30 minutes and they taste like they are from a restaurant.

And you guys.

This Creamy Parmesan Garlic Sauce is ON POINT! It will be one of the best sauces that you will ever make!

My son said this is one of the best things he has ever eaten! I think my son is my biggest fan of my cooking. My other one is unpredictable and pretty picky but he LOVED this meal as well. Of course, he had to scrape the mushrooms and spinach off but said it was amazing.

I promise that you guys are going to love this meal just as much as we did! I have been perfecting this creamy sauce for so long and it is literally amazing. All of my chicken skillet dishes have been getting such rave reviews I know that you are going to love this one too!

    I have made this several times and my family loves it every time. This one pan meal is wonderfully easy and fast to prepare when we are hungry! I usually serve with noodles, a green salad and Italian bread.
    Simply delicious and filling!

    This is so tasty! I used corn starch since I can’t have gluten and I took Sarah’s idea of adding a bit of cream cheese. I also used a box of frozen spinach since that’s what I had on hand. Totally fantastic! I served it on spaghetti squash to get even more vegetables on our plates with a side of salad. A great, healthy meal. Thank you for this recipe!

  3. I tried this recipe recently. It was so good; my husband and I loved it! Definitely a keeper! I have already shared this with my daughter and daughter; both LOVE to cook!

    Added thoughts. The recipe needed to have pasta in it’s ingredients list. I didn’t prepare any because it only mentioned pasta in the last step. But I did have some leftover rice, so I just used that. It was wonderful. But we love pasta so I’ll use that next time.

    The only change I will make the next time is to increase the amount of spinach. We need more veggies and it should only enhance the flavor and color!

    This was absolutely delicious! Easy, and tasted like something you would get from a good restaurant! One for the books!

    OMG soooooo good made it last night for my husband and I and he wants it again !! he said it’s better than going out to dinner!!!

    This was a actually amazing. I subbed a few things, didn’t use all parm cheese. I put some white sharp cheddar in, and used a little more seasoning while frying the chicken up. I also added a dash of worsh sauce… don’t know how to spell it lol… this came out soooo good! I also added broccoli instead of the spinach… cooked the broccoli first and melted butter over it before adding. I wish I would’ve made a double batch cause our family of 5, wanted seconds and thirds! Thank you!!! Will absolutely make again ⭐️

    This recipe turned out amazingly! My husband and I had it for dinner served with egg noodles and it was so good. Even made it to the recipe binder to make it again, which hardly happens. My husband even had seconds and leftovers!

    This is such a great recipe! Truly a must in every household. I’m making it again tonight! Can’t wait! Thank you!

    I had some chicken breasts cooked from the night before so I just cut them up and threw them in with mushrooms. It was pretty good but not great. Added grated parmesan on top which made it better.

    This sounds amazing. I can’t wait to try it. Either with or without the chicken the sauce sounds amazing. Since I am not a fan of fish & with it being Lent, meat/protein is a NO-NO on Friday’s. So, I plan on making this without the chicken. I bet you could even replace the chicken with some shrimp. Thank you for the recipe.

    This is a KEEPER!!! It was easy, done in steps, and absolutely DELICIOUS … everyone loved it!!! I did take the advice of a couple of other comments and added more spinach and 4 oz. of cream cheese.

    I have made this a bunch of times now since finding it a month or 2 ago. sometimes use chicken as called for, other times using steak, other times substituting a bunch of roasted veggies for the meat. Every time it’s phenomenal and loved by everyone in the household, which is rare! Thanks for a fantastic recipe!

  15. Served it at a family dinner of 15 and everyone loved it, even though the 3 kids pushed the mushrooms and spinach aside, silly kiddos. Served it over fettuccini and made extra sauce. Yummy!! Definitely will make again.

    I tried this because it was quick , easy, and best of all, different. Had no idea such a simple recipe would be so spectacular. Wish your son would just try it with the spinach! Whole new level. Many thanks for sharing.

    Love this recipe! I followed it as written but omitted the mushrooms (husband hates them – go figure) and doubled everything related to the sauce – it’s so good I want plenty on hand for left-overs and to drench the pasta. This has become a family favorite. Thanks so much!

    I made this before, and it was good. I felt it was missing something so this time I added sauteed red peppers and a half of a sweet onion, with some red peppers for a hint of spice. NO leftovers for my family. It was a hit for everyone.

    Absolutely delicious! First meal in as long as I can remember where my 3yr old not only ate everything on her plate but asked for seconds instead of dessert! Super simple too. I doubled the garlic cause my family loves garlic & I think next time I’ll double the spinach too cause we like that as well & don’t serve this over pasta or anything so maybe that’ll help feel a little fuller

    We tried this recipe yesterday and absolutely loved it. My kids would tell me I’m being extra by saying this but it spoke to my soul! We didn’t have any half and half or heavy whipping cream so I used 2% milk and added 3 TB of cool whip and used regular water and a bullion cube. Not sure how it tastes originally but even with the lack of ingredients and having to make substitutions, it was amazing. My husband said, “Now this is a meal”. Reheated some for lunch today and it was still good. Next time I’ll triple the sauce though instead of just doubling since we did put it over some penne pasta. Thank you for this permanent addition to my recipe box!

  21. I made this last night only I left out the spinach because the hubby hates it. I served it over thin spaghetti. Man, it is sooo good! I like that is was quick & easy. It was done in the amount of time it took to cook the spaghetti! My husband loved it so much, I bet I’ll be able to put spinach in it next time and he’ll STILL eat it. Thank you!

    Husband here WOW you knocked this one out of the park !!!
    Really want to thank you for this recipe , my wife is a great cook but from time to time she likes to look up something different and this was great.

  23. Easy and simply delicious. All 4 kids enjoyed it and asked for seconds. Even left overs where popular 2 days later.

  24. 5 stars
    I added a bit more garlic & parmesan, because I love them both, and it was very good! Will definitely make this again! Thank you!

  25. Just as good as reported! My husband LOVED it. And if you are living a high fat, low carb life style, this is great. Used Almond Flour for thickener (only substitution).
