To kick off the New Year, I have started to focus more on easy “one pot” or “one skillet” meals for my readers. And this Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken recipe is one of my family’s favorites.
It is made with just a few simple ingredients and all comes together in one pan/skillet. I like to use my cast iron skillet for this recipe.
As it really cooks the chicken well and heats up very fast, which helps to have this simple dish on the table in no time at all.
Also I use Campbell’s Mushroom soup to make it creamy. It is a low fat option as well to heavy cream that other recipes tend to call for.
If you’d like you can omit the Campbell’s soup and use cream instead. Just make sure your adding 3/4 cup of cream along with 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms in its place.
I find the Campbell’s Mushroom soup to do the trick! And really makes it reallllllyyy creamy.
HOW TO MAKE CREAMY GARLIC MUSHROOM CHICKEN
- Start with 2 fresh chicken breasts and slice them in half.
- Do the same with 3 pieces of garlic.
- Saute butter in your skillet of choice, add the chicken and season with salt and pepper.
- Saute the chicken on both sides till browned. Then remove the chicken and set aside.
- Meanwhile, saute the garlic till fragrant.
- Then add in the dijon mustard, mushroom soup, greek yogurt, chicken stock.
- Add back in the cooked chicken breasts and simmer for 5 minutes all together.
Serve alongside your favorite vegetable or along rice & potatoes.
And don’t forget to pour that delicious sauce from the pan over top of whatever you choose to serve them with!
The secret to serving the best pan seared Chicken breasts, is making sure you use enough butter to fry them in.
Which helps to keep them moist and delicious!
Then cooking them at the right temperature and for the right amount of time, brought to allow them to brown.
MEAL PREP IDEA: Make enough to create a few meal preps bowls for the week ahead. Simply place your favorite vegetable on the bottom of the meal prep bowls and top with the sliced chicken breasts and the sauce.
