Ingredients for Creamy Mushroom Chicken

The ingredients for the creamiest chicken recipe are super common and easy to find. Make sure you’re using full-fat heavy cream for a rich chicken sauce.

Ingredients for One-Pan Creamy Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken 
  • Chicken Breast – Boneless thighs or even turkey breasts can be used instead of chicken breast. This lean protein pairs perfectly with the rich sauce.
  • Olive Oil – to pan-sear the chicken until golden brown. You can also replace it with butter or avocado oil.
  • Salt&Pepper – to season the chicken, you also add some garlic powder or smoked paprika.

Creamy Parmesan Garlic Sauce Ingredients

  • Butter – I like to use unsalted one, but if you choose to use a salted one, make sure that you reduce the amount of salt you are using.
  • Garlic – fresh garlic is required for this recipe because it adds an intense taste to the sauce.
  • Mushrooms – You can use any mushrooms such as white mushrooms, cremini, or Baby Bella. Broccoli, green beans, spinach, and zucchini are other vegetable alternatives.
  • Spinach – I recommended using fresh baby spinach, but you can also use frozen spinach. Allow thawing for a few minutes before mixing into the mushroom sauce. 
  • Heavy Cream – makes the sauce creamy and rich. 
  • Parmesan Cheese –  booster of flavor! Adding parmesan cheese enhances the savory flavor and provides deep flavor. It also aids in the thickening of the sauce, so you won’t need to add extra flour.

How To Make the Creamiest Chicken Breast 

As usual, this delicious parmesan garlic mushroom chicken recipe is extremely easy to make and is perfect for making ahead of time. Here is everything you have to do:

  • You can use evaporated milk for a light creamy sauce, whipping cream, or thickened cream in the sauce.
