One pan creamy parmesan chicken and mushrooms is a simple skillet meal that requires only 30 minutes and packs a huge punch of tasty flavor.
4-6 large chicken thighs, OR 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
3 tablespoons oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2/3 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
3 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup half and half OR heavy cream (for richer, creamier flavor use heavy cream)
2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus additional for topping
fresh parsley or thyme, for topping
In a large bowl combine chicken, oil, salt and pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning and toss.
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the chicken on both sides for 2-4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm.
Add butter to pan and stir until melted. Stir in garlic and mushrooms. Continue to cook 3-4 minutes over medium-high heat until butter begins to darken and mushrooms are tender.
Sprinkle flour into the pan and stir to combine. Whisk in chicken broth and milk or heavy cream. Stir in parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
Return chicken to pan and spoon a little of the sauce over the chicken. Cover and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
Spoon more sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with cracked black pepper, grated parmesan cheese, and fresh parsley or thyme and serve immediately.
