Grilled chicken & mushrooms in creamy cheese sauce

Let me tell y’all.. this chicken is fantastic-o!! Not only does the chicken turn out so tender and juicy, but the cheese sauce is literally heaven in a pan.. and my kids approve.. even with the mushroom. Yeah.. that’s a big deal, y’all! So grab you pan and let’s get to gettin’

Let me know what you think!

What you’re gonna need

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan (but you can definitely put mozzarella in there instead.. or use both. Cheese is the bees knees)**
  • 2 cups sliced mushroom
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic (sub 1/2-1 teaspoon for garlic powder if that’s what you have)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of dry parsley flakes
  • Salt & pepper

How you’re gonna do it

  1. Place butter in a pan and melt. Add garlic and cook for 1-2 min. You’re going to want the aroma to be coming off that butter. That way you know the garlic is nice and cooked.
  2. Add mushrooms and cook until tender.is it just me, or does this just sound beautiful?!
  3. While mushrooms are cooking, take 1/2 your parsley and sprinkle on both sides of chicken breasts. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Once mushrooms are done, remove from pan and set aside. Be sure to scoop them out with a slotted spatula so the juices stay in the pan.
  5. Place chicken in pan and cook until done. Remove chicken and set aside.
  6. In the same pan add heavy cream, cheese, remaining parsley, salt & pepper. Cook until cheese is melted and cheese sauce is bubbly.
  7. Add mushrooms and chicken back to the pan. Cook for a few minutes. Just long enough that your chicken and mushrooms have time to heat back up.

Enjoy!
