A one-pan chicken dinner that’s easy to put together and packs a punch of flavor.
Let’s face it, we all feel like chicken is meh on its own and could use a little flavor.

Creamy Garlic Chicken Mushroom Sauce
It’s really simple and ridiculously delicious.
First, you’ll want to butter or oil your pan and grill the chicken breasts until they’re golden.
How to cook your chicken breasts before adding in mushrooms:
Next, remove the chicken and set aside. Add your butter to the pan and caramelize the onions and mushrooms with garlic. Add in your half & half and softened cream cheese, stirring until incorporated. Plop in the chicken and you’re good to go. It’s really that simple.
Which mushrooms should I use with chicken?
I prefer baby portobello mushrooms for many of the dishes I make, but feel free to use your own preference for your homemade mushroom cream sauce.
Just be sure to not over-cook your mushrooms- it doesn’t take long for them to soften up.
Other Healthy Chicken and Mushroom Recipe Ideas:
- Add in parmesan cheeses
- Don’t have chicken available? Make with pork chops instead
- Need a side? Omit the chicken and make creamy garlic roasted mushrooms.
This recipe was inspired by Cafe Delites Creamy Garlic Mushrooms and Bacon recipe. You could easily add bacon to this dish. A little bacon adds a lot of extra flavor!
