This is another of my go-to chicken recipe. Lush chicken smothered in a creamy garlic mushroom sauce. Serve this with a light salad or pasta for a filling meal perfect for your entire family!
1.5 lb chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 1/4 c. chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
4 oz. Light cream cheese, softened
8 oz. button mushrooms, halved
1 tablespoon fresh chopped curly parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
How to make Creamy Chicken Mushroom
Step 1: In a pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken breast and sear for about 5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Set aside when done and tent to keep them warm.
Step 2: In the same pan, heat the rest of the 1 tbsp oil. Add the mushrooms and cook until a little golden brown. Next, add the garlic and continue to cook until aromatic.
Step 3: Place the cornstarch and 2 tbsp water in a small bowl. Mix well until completely dissolved. Then, add this to the broth.
Step 4: To taste, season with salt and pepper. Cook further until the liquid begins to bubble. Then, whisk in the cream cheese until the sauce is smooth and thickened.
Step 5: Add the chicken breasts back. Over the chicken, spoon the hot sauce.
Step 6: Before serving, garnish with some chopped parsley. Enjoy right away!
