We tend to eat a lot of chicken during the week, thats 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 and 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.

Tips and Tricks to make the perfect One Pan Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken:

  • I never get tired to say that you should use quality meat, preferably organic, in this case I used organic chicken breasts, but 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, ugh sorry, that is not a good one, 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, but 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.

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

Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken is made easy in One Pan and is ready in 30 minutes. Made with cheese, wine and garlic, it packs lots of flavor.



  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or 4 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 16 ounces baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 whole garlic head minced
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white wine
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated


  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!

  10. 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.

  11. was wondering if you rc’d my prior comment about the wine?

  12. 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!

  13. Nutrition values please n thank you for us diabetes….

  14. 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.

    • 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.

  15. I love anything with mushrooms! Looks perfect to add a baguette to!
