One-Skillet Mushroom Chicken

One-Skillet Mushroom Chicken

Tender chicken breasts, cremini (also known as “baby bella” or baby portabello) mushrooms, fresh herbs and spices, all made in one skillet. Super easy to make as a meal prep for the whole family.

Instead of loading it with heavy whipping cream, I use coconut milk and my favourite trick of whisking flour and water. It thickens to the most amazing, creamy sauce that you can pour over mashed potatoes, rice, pasta, or veggies!

I used cremini mushrooms in this recipe, but portabello mushrooms, white mushrooms, or whatever you’ve got will work great.
