Mushroom Chicken is creamy, made easily in One Pan and is ready in 30 minutes. Made with cheese, wine and garlic, it packs lots of flavors.

We love making easy and flavorful chicken meals in our kitchen. Some of our most popular once are Slow Cooker Garlic Sesame Chicken, Baked Mongolian Chicken, and Cranberry Orange 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 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.

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.

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.


thank-you! that's what I would have guessed. again wonderful recipe - restaurant quality


terry stenson

was wondering if you rc'd my prior comment about the wine?


oops sorry went into the spam! saving it now! :)



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!


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.


Thanks! We actually are garlic lovers as well, so this should be right up our alley!


We just finished this and it was SO GOOD! Thanks!



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



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.

Patricia @ Grab a Plate

Cathy @ Lemon Tree Dwelling

I love everything about this!



This dinner is happening very soon at my house!


Allyson Zea

Wow I would love to try this for dinner! YUM!



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?


Thank you! :)


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



Thank you so much to your readers who made your recipe and then related as to the taste of your dish, very much appreciated!



Thank you to all the people who actually made this recipe and commented on the taste and outcome of your meal. I really appreciate your reviews!

This recipe is just what I've been looking for -- chicken with a delicious cream parmesan mushroom sauce. We do eat lots of chicken so I'm always in search of different and tasty ways to make it. One-pan meals are tops in my book!!  I'll be making this soon
