Best Mushroom Chicken

The Best Mushroom Chicken

One Pan Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken is one of the easiest and most flavorful dishes you will ever make. This meal is a staple in our house because it is perfect to cook during a weeknight. When you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen, but crave a fabulous meal, this is the go-to one. Also, this One Pan Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken will be ready quicker than takeout, and you will also have delicious leftovers. The meal is so tasty and appetizing, that you can make it on date nights or when you entertain guests.

We tend to eat a lot of chicken during the week, that’s why I am trying to find many delicious ways to cook it so it’s not boring. Once every two weeks, we buy chicken breasts in bulk so it will last us for a few meals. I like the versatility of cooking with chicken, chicken breast can be added to so many dishes: soups, salads, casseroles, etc.

In this One Pan Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken, you will taste tender and juicy chicken breast that has been browned to golden perfection. Then, simmered into the most unbelievable Parmesan sauce made with lots of garlic and white wine. Caramelized mushrooms and spinach add a nice texture and take the dish to another level with their earthiness and sweetness.

Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken Recipe

Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken Recipe Tips:

  • Use quality meat, preferably organic, in this case, I used organic chicken breasts. However, the recipe will work great with chicken thighs as well.
  • Definitely brown the chicken on both sides to golden perfection. It will take a few minutes, but it will make a huge difference in taste.
  • Make sure the chicken is cooked, you don’t want to serve raw chicken, this is not steak 🙂 What I usually do, after I am done with browning it, I flip it bottom side up, and make a cut to see if the center is cooked. If it’s still pink cook for a few more minutes.
  • Please don’t use the pre-grated packaged Parmesan that looks like dust, because it is not a good one. So if you buy grated Parmesan, make sure it’s from a good quality brand and you can see beautiful, long strings of Parmesan.
  • The white wine adds such a nice flavor to this recipe. However, if you want to skip the alcohol, please replace it with chicken broth.
  • Caramelizing the mushrooms is another very important step. Also, don’t discard the liquid that comes from cooking the mushrooms, it will add so much flavor to the sauce.

Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken with Spinach

What wine to serve with Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken?

White meat-based, creamy sauce like this, pairs well with white wines like Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.

Tools/Ingredients I use to make this One Pan Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken Recipe:

  • Chantal Sauté Skillet – I particularly like this skillet for when I make recipes with lots of sauce, the skillet height is perfect so no drippings while cooking. It’s also a sturdy skillet made of high-quality material that will last you many years. You can also use a cast iron for this recipe.
  • Slotted Turner – perfect when you need to remove ingredients from a pot, without any of the liquids.
  • Tongs – I like the locking functionality on these, they are the best on the market.

Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken - One Pan
Author: Catalina Castravet Serves: 6 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes Total time: 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 4   chicken breasts  (boneless and skinless or 4 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs)
  • 4 tablespoons  extra virgin olive oil 
  • 16 ounces  baby bella mushrooms  (sliced)

Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons  unsalted butter 
  • 1  whole garlic head  (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons  all purpose flour 
  • 3/4 cup  white wine 
  • 2 cups  heavy cream 
  • 2 cups  parmesan cheese  (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon  onion powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon  red pepper flakes 
  • 1 teaspoon  garlic powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon  black pepper 
  • 3 cups  fresh spinach 

Garnish:

  • 1 cup  parmesan cheese  (grated)

Instructions

  1. Season the chicken with a little salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Clean the mushrooms, slice them and set aside.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown on each side and if you slice it the center it should be cooked. Using tongs, remove the chicken from the skillet and place it on a plate near by.
  4. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet and add the sliced mushrooms. Cook the mushrooms for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring all the time, until tender.
  5. Using a slotted turner, remove the mushrooms from the skillet to a plate near by. Using the slotted turner helps removing the mushrooms, while all the liquid will remain in the skillet.
  6. Reduce heat to medium and add butter to the skillet.
  7. Once the butter has melted, add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute until tender.
  8. Add the flour and whisk until it thickens, this will happen very quickly so make sure you have the wine and cream on hand.
  9. Stir in the white wine and heavy cream. Fold in the parmesan cheese and season with garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, black pepper and salt. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper.
  10. Add the fresh spinach and let the sauce simmer until it starts to thicken and the spinach wilts. Stir a few times.
  11. Add the chicken and mushrooms back to the skillet, cover in sauce and let it simmer on low heat for 2 more minutes.
  12. Garnish with 1 cup of grated parmesan and serve with pasta, couscous or bulgur.
  13. The dish can also be served on it's own, with warm, crusty bread for dipping!

I just had to tell you how absolutely wonderful this dish is!! I've made it twice and would like to use wine next time instead of the broth, could you be more specific on what you used? I'm almost positive it wasn't a sweet wine, but just want to be sure

Thank you so much Terry for the feedback! We LOVE this recipe in my family and make it quiet often. I usually use a dry white wine, usually on the cheaper side. I made the recipe with Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc and loved both.

This looks crazy good! I need to double check the garlic, though. A whole head, as in a whole bunch of cloves, all minced? Thanks!

Reply

Yes, we love garlic, its actually nor overpowering, because of all the cream and cheese, I used 8 garlic cloves, which is a small garlic head. You can use less if you are not a garlic fan.

This looks amazing! I have to ask though - Does this really only take 30minutes? Between the mincing measuring simmering and browning it seems like it would take closer to 45min or an hour.

Reply

The chicken breasts cook fairly quickly and to save time I usually buy sliced mushrooms. The recipe definitely can be done in 30 minutes, if you use store bough sliced mushrooms, but if you are not rushing and are taking your time, you are looking at about 35-45 mins.

I absolutely loved this recipe! I've made it twice already. I ended up with some leftovers this time around, do you have any tips on how to store or reheat?

Reply

Thank you! :)

Reply

When you reheat it, you can just add a little cream or chicken broth, as the sauce tends to solidify when chilled.
