This is one of those die-hard, tried, and true recipes that I firmly believe will stand the test of time regardless of whether it is low carb or not. It is all about flavaaaaa and this recipe brings it!
I even got my mushroom hating daughter to eat this! So if that doesn’t tell you something about this recipe I am not sure what else will.
I usually serve this over cauliflower rice, or with mashed cauliflower that I have heated in the microwave so I still count it as one pot.
You could always add spinach, or broccoli, to the skillet if you want and truly make this a one-pot meal.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE CHICKEN WITH MUSHROOM GARLIC SAUCE
Detailed measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page.
For the sauce
Pat chicken dry with a paper towel.
Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, herbs, salt, and pepper. Coat the chicken evenly with the seasoning blend.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and sear the chicken until browned on each side, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
Transfer to a plate and set aside.
To the same pan or skillet, melt the butter and add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and cook until soft (about 5 minutes). Add the garlic, parsley, thyme, and rosemary, and sauté for a minute or two longer.
Pour in the white wine and simmer until the wine has reduced by half.
Stir in cream, bring to a bubble, then reduce heat to simmer and return the chicken to the pan. Cover and continue cooking for 10 minutes.
Remove the chicken to a plate and stir in the parmesan cheese and allow to simmer for 2 minutes, while occasionally stirring.
Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
Return chicken to the pan.
Garnish with fresh parsley.
Serve the chicken immediately topped with mushroom sauce.
FAQS ABOUT CHICKEN WITH MUSHROOM GARLIC SAUCE
Can I use fresh herbs instead of dried ones in this Chicken with Garlic Mushroom Sauce?
Absolutely! I grow a ton of herbs in my garden but test most of my recipes with both fresh and dried ones since many people don’t have access to fresh herbs. The rule of thumb is that if a recipe calls for a teaspoon of dried herbs you replace that with a tablespoon of fresh. You can also mix and match herbs and change them up if you like and add your favorite herbs. Tarragon is a fabulous herb for this as well!
Can I use chicken thighs instead of breasts in this recipe?
Yes, you can. I tend to cook with chicken thighs when I am just making a meal for my family because they are cheaper and more forgiving. They also have more flavor IMHO but I get so many requests for chicken breast recipes so I will usually test recipes using them first. This recipe is also awesome with pork tenderloin.
Do I have to use brown mushrooms for this recipe?
No, you can use the white button mushrooms if that is all that you can find. I just feel the brown, or cremini, has more flavor. If you are feeling froggy, and your grocery has some wild mushrooms available, I wholeheartedly recommend using them!
Do I have to use the wine in the sauce?
No, you can leave it out if you prefer.
How do I store leftover Chicken with Mushroom Garlic Sauce?
Store the leftover chicken and sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To reheat place the chicken and sauce in a skillet and heat over low to low-medium heat. You can add more cream, chicken stock, or even water to the sauce to thin it out if needed. Gently heat the chicken in the sauce until it is hot. Taste and add seasoning if needed.
