Creamy Chicken & Mushroom Recipe

A rich and savory dish featuring tender chicken breasts and earthy mushrooms in a creamy garlic sauce, perfect for a cozy dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 oz (225g) mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Season the Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Cook the Chicken: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Sauté the Mushrooms: In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they are tender and browned, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add Garlic: Stir in the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  5. Make the Sauce: Pour in the heavy cream and chicken broth. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the Parmesan cheese and dried thyme. Let the sauce cook for a few minutes until it thickens.
  6. Combine Chicken and Sauce: Return the cooked chicken breasts to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the top. Let everything simmer together for a few minutes to meld the flavors.
  7. Serve: Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve hot.

Enjoy this creamy chicken and mushroom dish with a side of steamed vegetables or over a bed of pasta or rice!
