Creamy Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken

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.

Creamy Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken

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!

    1. Adjust the cooking time for the chicken…

      Really no need to leave a 3 star review because this recipe uses sliced chicken breast and you can’t figure it out.

      1. So true, if they can’t figure out how to use the chicken they bought they certainly shouldn’t fault the recipe ! It’s great as is and I’ve been using it for years now ?

    2. This recipe came out good {I’d like to keep it that way} I just went to any grocery store in all of America and bought parm. With money. It came in a thing. At the store. Where I bought it. boo hoo

    3. You are supposed to rate the recipe given, not rate it because it isn’t what you want???
      Very unfair on the author! Boo hoo

  1. Delicious! Made tonight and served over egg noodles. I did cut up cooked chicken into bite size pieces before adding into sauce. It was so tasty. Great flavor.

  2. I made this for dinner last night. Really enjoyed it. Wondering if you can provide the nutritional information for this dish?

  3. Hands down my favorite recipe. I brought some into work and a coworker said I was born the make chicken. Lol! Great job putting this recipe together. Thanks you!

    1. I just made this recipe and used half and half. I cut up the chicken to bite sized pieced. It’s delicious! Will definitely be making this dish again!

      1. I am in the process of adding all nutritional information on each of my recipes. In the meantime you are welcome to use to help calculate any nutritional value that you are looking for. Thanks so much!

  4. Seriously my favorite LOW CARB dish! It almost tastes like the chicken and gnocchi soup from olive garden.. it’s amazing.

  5. Delicious, made this with Perdue grilled chicken strips (frozen) mushrooms,spinach etc, I did not have chicken broth (the horror) so I used pasta water and white Zin we loved it,

  6. Not bad but was nervous it would be way too bland for my family. We prefer bold flavors so I knew 2 garlic cloves would never suffice. Vastly increased amount of fresh garlic and added sauteed onions and Sherry to the sauce. Still bland. Next time will cook the shrooms with garlic, onion and Sherry. Not at all sorry I experimented with it! Will serve over whole grain spaghetti.

  7. Amazing….!!!!! I did rub chicken in Cajun seasoning…and I added some to sauce…tossed with linguini…I doubled the sauce because if pasta. I have made it 3 times!!!

  8. I love this recipe. Even without spinach(because I didnt have any) its still amazing. I like to serve it on a bed of white rice.

    1. I am not familiar with GF items. I would recommend looking it up or seeing what your sister thinks before making it for her. She is going to love it! I hope that it all works out for you!

  9. I tried this recipe last night and I have to tell you that it was good to the last drop. My family loved it and it is definitely a keeper. Now I am going to check out your other recipes!! Thanks so much for sharing!

  10. I made this tonight it was very good and since I am doing a low carb diet I omitted the pasta will definitely make this again thanks for the recipe

  11. Thinking pork chops would be great in this. Also, I will use a bit of xantham instead of flour. Recipes can be tweaked for keto!

  12. I LOVE this recipe!!! Second time I’ve made it. More fresh garlic this time, a bit more Parmesan Cheese, triple the spinach and topped off with fresh chopped parsley. My husband was in heaven! Served over med egg noodles this time and served along with mixed veggies. Delicious!!!

  13. This was an amazing recipe, so delicious, I doubled the batch so I could share with other family members and they were in heaven… I’ll be making this again for sure!!!Thanks

  14. Great recipe! Had it for dinner last night and husband and I loved the sauce. Any way you know the nutrition facts per serving? Might be asking a lot but figured I’d give it a shot. And sorry if it’s somewhere on here.

  15. Thanks Alyssa for putting this recipe up we have been making this for about 6 months now it’s a family regular. Me and my gf use it when we need to impress….never fails. Thanks again?

  16. We are gluten free and keto. I’m going to have to skip the flour since it’s not keto-friendly or gluten free. I’m thinking of just reducing the amount of chicken broth so that it’s not runny. Suggestions?

  17. Been cooking my whole life professionally and personally. I always run thru some recipes online just to see if there’s something unique to try with what is already in my mind. It is a perfect recipe, but to speed up time you can buy a rotisserie chicken also and cut it up. It will add some additional complexities depending on the type that is prepared. Lemon mojo etc. thx

  18. i get confused when it comes to parmesan cheese(s), is it located where the dairy slices and shredded cheeses are, or is it in the cans that you sprinkle out?

    1. Karen!
      Thanks for the question! This recipe calls for shredded parmesan cheese. This will be the kind that is located with the diary slices and needs to be refrigerated. I hope this is helpful and thanks for following along with me!

  19. Yum! I had already started to saute’ some mushrooms and onions when I found this recipe, so my steps were slightly different, and included a 1/2 sweet onion. The result was wonderful. I used “hand pulled rotisserie chicken breast” from Costco, which made it much faster. Served with rotini pasta, but next time, will try quinoa. Great recipe! 🙂

  20. This was fantastic! Can’t keep away from the sauce. I need my husband to hurry home for dinner…cuz it’s ready and I’m hungry and their won’t be any sauce left! ?

  21. What do you think of adding cauliflower rice to the chicken Parmesan meal? I love love noodle and we don’t eat them anymore but we use the cauliflower rice a lot ?

  22. I cut the chicken into bite sized pieces, it was super simple to make, and tasted awesome!! I will DEFINITELY make this again!! I HIGHLY recommend to all my friends ❤️❤️

  23. Superb10/10 my daughter asked me to knock this up for tea, it was quick and easy and tastes bloody delicious ? a nice change for us coz we’re sick of chicken carby.

  24. I absolutely love this recipe!! I was just wondering if you have the nutritional data on it? I looked but couldn’t find it on this page.

    1. Hi Christie! I am updating all my recipes at this time with new nutritional information. In the meantime you are welcome to use for any nutritional information.

  25. Tried this last night and the butter cream sauce that comes out of this recipe is divine!!! 100% will make again and would recommend to others to try. So so good. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Amazing! Can’t wait to try other proteins with this sauce too.
