Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken

Tender and juicy chicken in the most amazing creamy and delicious garlic mushroom sauce! This makes one incredible 30 minute meal!

I have been pretty obsessed with creamy delicious skillet meals lately. But my family LOVES them. I always have most of these ingredients on hand. I buy chicken and heavy cream in bulk from Costco and I have a delicious real ready in under 30 minutes.

This Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken became one of our favorites. You guys are going to LOVE the creamy sauce over the chicken. It is full of flavor and is thick and creamy and so delicious. This is so good that it tastes like it came straight from a restaurant!

I am not a huge mushroom fan, but if you stuff them, or put them in a sauce I absolutely love them! These mushrooms added a new texture and awesome flavor to the dish.

I mean just look at all of that creamy delicious garlic mushroom goodness!

I couldn’t believe how delicious this meal turned out. Quick, easy, delicious and full of such delicious flavor. What is not to love about this dish!? You guys are going to love it just as much as our family did!

Author: Alyssa

Serves: 4-6


1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, or breasts

2 Tablespoons olive oil

8 ounces sliced mushrooms

3 garlic cloves, minced or whole (whatever your preference is)

1 cup chicken broth

½ cup heavy cream

2 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 Tablespoon flour


In a large skillet add olive oil and cook the chicken on medium high heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until brown on each side and cooked until no longer pink in center. Remove chicken and set aside on a plate. Add the sliced mushrooms and garlic and cook for a few minutes until tender. Remove and set aside.

To make the sauce add the chicken broth, heavy cream, cream cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat and whisk until smooth. Add the flour and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes until it starts to thicken. Add the mushrooms and garlic to the sauce followed by the chicken and coat in the creamy sauce. Heat for a couple of minutes and serve immediately.

I rarely comment on recipes, but I’ve got to leave one here because this dish was so simple and DELICIOUS! Is there anything higher than 5 stars? My husband licked the entire plate and even my 18 month old enjoyed it! The sauce was amazingly simple and complemented the chicken beautifully. This will definitely be a part of our monthly menu.

I have made this twice in the same week it’s that good! I tweeked the recipe a bit by adding onion, onion powder, a little more cream cheese, some chicken gravy mix to help thicken it and parsley. I used Portabella mushrooms to.Served it over rice. tasted great.

There’s no need to be a glutton. There is no need for cream cheese in this recipe. Drives me crazy when people add cream cheese to everything. If you add heavy cream alone, this dish will still be amazing. That’s the beautiful thing about heavy cream, it thickens will its cooking. Eliminate the cream cheese and flour and you will be mine. They are using parsley but if you want to add an herbal with flavor, try Italian parsley or basil.

Super simple recipe and very tasty. I used light cream and omitted the flour. I added a small bag of ricotta stuffed gnocchi (I boiled from frozen for 3 minutes) and two handfuls of baby spinach during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Finally, I finished with a swirl of a small pat of butter – about a teaspoon. So simple yet elegant, delicious and very satisfying. Next time I may grate a tiny bit of nutmeg on top. I’d give the recipe more stars if I could!

NO! it says heavy cream doesn’t it? You could use lamb instead of the chicken and cabbage instead of the mushrooms. It’ll still be a meal, but it won’t be this meal as the recipe calls for. Change anything and the recipe isn’t the same…. Not rocket science

I made this recipe last night for my boyfriend, and OMG it was so good! I served it with wild rice and a side of brussels sprouts. It was super easy to make – which I greatly appreciated! I will definitely be making this again soon. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes! xo Ellen theperennialstyle.com

No, you will cook the chicken first then remove the chicken and cook the mushrooms and add other ingredients on top of the mushrooms. It tastes great and this is a popular meal at our home! Happy cooking! XOXO

A great big thank you for this super simple but super yummy dish! I don’t usually cook so I’m beyond happy that my whole family loved this…Especially my mother-in-law!!! =D * I did add some dried parsley and omitted the flour since the sauce was thick enough for me.

I’ve never been a huge fan of mushrooms, but my boyfriend and his daughter looove them so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. AND OH MY LANTA WHAT A HIT! They loooved it and so did I! I’ve made it twice already in the last two weeks. This will definitely be a new go to meal!

This recipe knocked our socks off! I made a few small tweaks based on my cooking style which I’ll share just in case anyone else wants to try.

Cut the chicken into uniform sized pieces after flattening with a meat hammer.

Cook chicken 3 to 4 minutes on one side in a cast iron skillet, then flip and COVER so the liquid stays in the skillet. Cook another 3 to 4 minutes until cooked thoroughly and set aside as the recipe states and cover in a bowl.

Add mushrooms, garlic and a pad of butter to the chicken liquid and cook down until the the mushrooms are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. Add the mushrooms to the bowl of chicken and cover.

Add the sauce ingredients but DO NOT ADD SALT. Cook in the same skillet so it absorbs the chicken and buttery mushroom garlic flavors left behind.

Once the sauce is thick, return the chicken and mushrooms to the sauce, evenly coat and serve immediately topped with a tiny bit of parsley (italian or curly) and a sprinkle of shredded parmesan cheese which will add more than enough saltiness.

Don’t be afraid to double / triple the entire recipe because people WILL want seconds! ??

Microwave cooking and nutrition

Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?

How does microwave cooking work?

Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.

Are microwaves safe to cook?

Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.

When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.

Are microwaves bad for your health?

The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.

But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
