I am so excited to share this recipe for Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken. Let’s call it “easy gourmet”. This meal is inspired by my daughter, who is starting her new household and is looking for simple, yet delicious, dinner ideas. As we are building her wedding registry, we are also building her collection of family recipes. This one is at the top of her list, with tender, savory chicken smothered in a rich, creamy garlic sauce.

Ingredients Needed to Make Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken:
- Chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Baby portabello mushrooms
- Salt, pepper + flour
- Heavy cream
- Chicken broth
- Parmesan cheese
- Baby spinach
- Roasted red bell peppers
- Pasta (optional)
If you are in a hurry, you can pick up a package of chicken cutlets. You can also cut your own skinless, boneless chicken breasts into cutlets or strips. Cut the chicken instead of using full-sized breasts because it makes this recipe faster to prepare.
TIP: If you aren’t a fan of bell peppers, you can leave them out. Or you can substitute sun dried tomatoes for a color and flavor. Also, half and half can be used in place of the heavy cream if preferred.
Included in the Calphalon® Premier™ Space Saving Cookware Set is a durable 10-inch skillet. This is what we used to create this mushroom chicken recipe. The hard anodized aluminum body delivers quick, even heating. Plus, the metal utensil safe cooking surface makes for easy food release and quick cleanup.
Plus, your newlyweds will LOVE the unique space-saving glass lids that come with the set. Keep scrolling to see more pictures of the cookware.
How to Make Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken:
- First, sprinkle the chicken pieces on both sides with half of the salt and half of the pepper. Heat olive oil to medium in a 10-inch skillet. Brown the chicken for about 4 minutes per side. Set aside.
- Then in the same skillet, brown the sliced mushrooms. Set aside.
- Next, reduce heat to low. Melt the butter and stir in the pressed garlic. Whisk in the flour and cook for 2 minutes until bubbly, stirring constantly. Whisk in the cream and broth until smooth. Stir in the remaining salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese.
- Cook on low, stirring until the cheese is melted. Add spinach, peppers, chicken and mushrooms. Stir and heat through. Serve over pasta if desired.
Don’t you love how this recipe comes together using one skillet? Just cook the chicken, then the mushrooms, then create the creamy garlic parmesan sauce.
TIP: This recipe is perfect for just two people. It makes a total of 4 servings, so you’ll have extra for lunch. Perfect for busy young couples.
Another feature of this cookware that makes it perfect for gifting is that it saves 30% more space** than like non-stacking Calphalon® Cookware items when stacked with like diameter Premier™ Space Saving items. I love the fact that you can stack and nest the pots and pans in any order in the same size. (**cookware must have same diameter)
The unique handles also keep the stack of cookware in place, instead of falling everywhere inside your cabinets. And remember the tempered glass lids I mentioned earlier? Check them out below.
