Chicken breasts in a creamy mushroom sauce.

Chicken With Creamy Mushroom Sauce

For some reason people think creamy sauces are tricky, or require a can of soup. Personally, I have taken a vow to never make any recipe again that lists a ‘can of soup’ as an ingredient.

This super easy creamy mushroom chicken recipe is ready in under an hour and is an amazing one-pot meal. I paired this up with a bag of cabbage salad and it was delicious. Give it a try for yourself!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Season chicken generously with salt and pepper. Sprinkle all over with Italian seasoning.
  • In a large cast iron skillet combine oil and butter over medium-high heat.
  • Once butter is melted, add the chicken and brown on each side for 1-2 minutes until you get a nice browned color. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  • Return chicken to skillet. Spoon sauce over the chicken, then transfer skillet to the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and sauce has reduced (it should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon).
  • Spoon the mushroom sauce over the chicken and serve.
