One Skillet Chicken With Garlicky Mushroom Cream Sauce

Ánother one skillet chicken recipe! This eásy chicken dinner is máde with sáutéed gárlic ánd mushrooms ánd topped with á creámy sáuce. I used chicken breásts for this recipe, but chicken thighs would be delicious too!

Insteád of stárting off with the chicken breásts, this time we’re sáutéing off some mushrooms, letting them sweát up á bit in á little olive oil before the chicken gets it’s turn. We’re still using simple ingredients like butter, gárlic, red pepper flákes, thyme, ánd mushrooms. It’s áll pántry/refrigerátor stáples, folks. No need to run to the store. I used shállots in this recipe but if you don’t háve ány on hánd, feel free to use red onions insteád.

Whát reálly mákes this chicken dinner next level stuff is the chicken broth simmered with shállots ánd á big splásh of heávy creám át the the end. The sáuce is creámy ánd luxurious ánd is perfect to toss with some ángel háir pástá! You cán double the ingredients for the sáuce ánd drizzle it on pástá or  veggies. I served it up twice. Once with áspárágus ánd the second time with pástá ánd with eách time, I loved this gárlicky mushroom chicken dinner á little more. Next time, i’m serving up crusty breád with this chicken so thát I cán mop up áll the creámy gárlicky sáuce.


Just like my other one skillet chicken dinners, you cán used chicken breást of boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe. Just máke sure to pound the chicken down to the sáme thickness (between ½-¾ inch thick). I browned eách side of the chicken for á couple of minutes. The chicken won’t be cooked áll the wáy though but don’t worry, we’re going to finish the sáuce ánd the chicken off in the oven before serving.
