Of the countless numbers of chicken recipes I have worked on like these Keto Parmesan Crusted Chicken Cutlets, or Baked Green Chile Chicken, this is one that continues to come back over and over again. Not just by my cravings, but by the requests of others as well.

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.

Another reason this recipe makes me happy is that it is a skillet meal. Mama does loves her a one-pot wonder like this Low Carb Cheesy Beef and Broccoli Rice Skillet, Instant Pot White Chicken Chili, or Keto Sheet Pan Chicken Parmesan!
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.

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.

Last thoughts about Chicken with Mushroom Garlic Sauce

I promise this recipe will not disappoint! 
If you have been a reader for a while you know that I love a creamy sauce like the sauce for these Creamy Keto Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas or this Creamy Keto Tuscan Salmon
I mean creamy mushrooms and garlic? How could it go wrong right?
It can’t, I swear!
So you need to grab some chicken and get to cookin’! And make sure to leave me a comment letting me know what you think.
