Chicken with Mushroom Cream Sauce

You can’t go wrong with this meal. We are talking about juicy caramelized chicken, mushrooms cooked in delicious butter, sinful heavy cream and parmesan cheese! Absolutely heavenly! And you will have it on the table in 20 mins :)

This is obviously not the healthiest meal but every now and then you need to indulge.

Well to be honest I’ve been indulging more often than I should lately. Like seriously.

Everything I’ve been eating has been sinfully delicious and I just don’t know how I haven’t gained 10lbs yet.

Or maybe I have, I’ve been just too terrified to step on the scale and find out.

And as far as working out goes, well…it hasn’t been going at all. I’ve been avoiding the gym like the plague. I haven’t stepped foot in it for 2 weeks now and have exhausted every excuse imaginable not to go. But I really should…

And I keep wondering why my skinny jeans are a little tight… well after eggs, bacon, toast, hash browns and cinnastack french toast at Ihop, a few(dozen) oreos for snacks, this filling and “oh-so-healthy” dinner and the other crap I’ve been consuming for the last week or so…the only reason I can think of is that they must have shrunk! Wishful thinking.

So starting tomorrow, I will try to do better! Try being the keyword here…

But for now, I will just have another oreo….

Chicken with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium chicken breasts, pounded so they are evenly thick, excess fat trimmed and dried with paper towel
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • serve with cooked pasta (I used thin spaghetti)

Directions: Salt and pepper the chicken. In a saucepan over medium high heat, melt 1 tbsp butter. Cook the chicken 4 mins per side or until cooked through. It will have a nice golden crust. Remove chicken to a plate. In the saucepan, melt the rest of the butter. Add the mushrooms and cooked until they are nice and soft, about 5 mins. Don’t overcrowd the mushrooms! Add salt and pepper. Add the heavy cream and bring to boil. Reduce the heat to low and add the garlic powder and parmesan cheese. Let the cheese melt, taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper accordingly. Add the chicken to the pan to heat up. Slice the chicken and serve with the mushroom sauce over pasta. That’s it! Enjoy :)

  1. LOL! Off course your skinny jeans have shrunk in the wash! Totally agree, you have to indulge every so often. Life’s way too short, otherwise.

  2. This looks absolutely delish! And you’re right, indulgence is needed every once in awhile. Yeah, as foodies, we tend to indulge a little more often than others, but whatevs! Plus, Oreos are vegan ;) . Btw, I’m loving the Italian kick you’re on right now.

    • Thank you! What can I say I absolutely love pasta and cheese and have been craving it like crazy lately :) yep and this dish has chicken=protein and mushrooms=veggies so it must me healthy ;)
