Creamy Chicken Mushroom and Garlic Recipes is chicken thighs in a thick and creamy mushroom sauce with garlic, herbs and Parmesan cheese is the weeknight dinner everyone raves about.
Creamy Chicken Mushroom and Garlic Recipes

It's so Delicious! I added the suggested white wine and half and half because I didn’t have heavy cream. It didn’t end up thickening as much as it probably would have with the cream, so I added a little corn starch slurry and it thickened nicely. Served with gnocchi and steamed broccoli. My husband thought it was awesome and even my picky kids liked it! Next time I would probably make extra sauce and serve over bow tie pasta.
Creamy Chicken Mushroom and Garlic Recipes


  • For The Chicken:
  • 1 1/2 pounds (700 g) boneless skinless chicken thighs (around 6-8 fillets)
  • 1 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of dried thyme and rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • For The Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 ounces (250 g) sliced brown mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tablespoon minced garlic)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary (adjust to your taste)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream / thickened cream (evaporated milk or half and half)*
  • 1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel and trim off excess fat. Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, herbs, salt and pepper. Coat the chicken evenly with the combined seasoning.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and sear chicken thighs in batches until browned on each side and no longer pink in center (about 8 minutes each side, depending on thickness).
  3. Add remaining oil if needed for second batch. Transfer to a plate; set aside and keep warm.
  4. To the same pan or skillet, melt the butter and add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and cook until soft (about 3 minutes). Add the garlic, parsley, thyme and rosemary; sauté until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  5. Stir in cream, bring to a simmer, then reduce heat and continue cooking until sauce has thickened slightly. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and allow it to melt through the sauce for a further 2 minutes, while occasionally stirring.
  6. Return chicken to the pan. Taste test and season with salt and pepper to your taste. Garnish with fresh parsley. Serve immediately.

*You CAN use fresh herbs if you have them! 2 teaspoons each of fresh herbs is fine. If you don't like Thyme or Rosemary, substitute with Basil and Oregano, or use Tarragon. **Heavy or thickened cream is used for low carb/high fat purposes. If counting calories and/or fat macros instead, use evaporated milk, reduced fat cream or half and half.

This delicious Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan recipe is straightforward and doesn't require any frying. Because this chicken Parmesan is baked, it's healthy, quick and easy! Make this crispy baked Parmesan crusted chicken for dinner tonight in about thirty minutes!

I always consider Chicken Parmesan as being a sophisticated and labor intensive recipe – but I recently discovered that Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan isn't only easy, but quick enough for a weeknight dinner!


This is an excellent pigeon breast recipe – cutting the chicken breasts in half lengthwise then pounding them slightly to form them even thickness will help them cook quickly and really helps you achieve more of a restaurant quality taste.

Baked Chicken Parmesan is healthy because it's baked and not fried, which suggests it uses less oil. Using chicken breasts means it's many protein but less fat. 



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese fresh grated
  • 2 chicken breasts About 1 pound of chicken total
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoon minced parsley optional, for garnish


  1. Line a baking sheet with foil, brush foil with olive oil.  Adjust oven rack so that is in the second from the top space. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts in half and pound to even thickness: Cut through the middle of the chicken breast as if you are going to butterfly it (cutting it open like a book), but cut all the way through to make two equal sized pieces.
  3. After cutting the chicken breasts in half, place them in a gallon sized zip top bag in an even layer, seal it, then pound them to an even thickness using a  meat pounder or a rolling pin. You can also place the chicken breasts between two layers of cling wrap instead of a zip top bag if you prefer.
  4. Pat the chicken breasts dry with a paper towel, then season with salt and pepper.
  5. In one shallow dish, mix together panko bread crumbs, grated parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, and black pepper.
  6. In another shallow dish, whisk one egg.
  7. Dip one chicken breast into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture.  Ensure chicken breast is fully coated in the crumb mixture, and gently press with your hand do help the crumbs stick to the chicken.  Place chicken breast on prepared baking sheet, repeat with remaining pieces of chicken.
  8. Place baking sheet in oven on the second from the top rack.  Bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through.  
  9. Flip chicken, pour 1/4 cup of marinara sauce over each piece of chicken, then top with cheese. Place back in the oven. Turn on the broiler. Broil for 2-4 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly and edges of chicken are browning.

Cashew chicken one among MA FAVES when it involves Chinese take-out. I really like the various textures from the chicken, veggies, water chestnuts, and cashews. But the simplest part, in my opinion, is when the sauce quite soaks into the cashews, softening them and loading them with delicious, saucy, flavor.

The best one EVER was this take-out place right down the road from us once we lived in Georgia. It had been called Lin China. Lin China = lyfe. That they had the simplest cashew chicken ever, and that they made me love, love, love that dish. Since then I even have been aiming to recreate it myself reception where it are often healthier and even more tasty.


You can add the other veggies into this dish that your wonderful heart desires; I kept mine simple and just used onions and broccoli, but if you would like to spice things up with another goodies from your garden .

Oh! Oh! You'll even make this a vegetarian dish, ditch the chicken all at once , and cargo abreast of dem veggies. You'll name it Cashew Vegetables but that just doesn’t sound nearly nearly as good as Cashew Chicken.



  • 1 cup cashews
  • 3 chicken breasts, diced into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 8 oz can of sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • Green onions and sesame seeds for garnish (optional!)

For the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup veggie broth
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce (tamari if you want gluten free)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch


  1. Heat a wok or large pan over medium high to high heat with some vegetable oil
  2. Season your diced chicken with salt and pepper (not too much! The soy sauce has a lot of sodium)
  3. Add your diced chicken to your hot wok/pan and cook until the chicken is JUST cooked through
  4. Remove the chicken to a plate and add your vegetables (onion and broccoli) to the wok/pan
  5. Saute for a few minutes until the onions have softened
  6. Meanwhile, make your sauce
  7. Add all the sauce ingredients into a blender and blend until thoroughly combined
  8. Add your chicken back in with your veggies, and add your water chestnuts
  9. Pour your sauce in, and simmer this for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened
  10. If your sauce isn’t thickening enough for your preference, create a “slurry” by stirring together 1 teaspoon of cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of water together in a small bowl. Add your slurry to the chicken and veggie mixture and simmer until the sauce has thickened further
  11. Add your cashews and stir to combine
  12. Top with green onions and sesame seeds as you serve (optional!)

Thai Chicken Satay skewers with Thai Peanut Sauce – the gold standard of authentic Thai food! Marinated chicken with a peanut sauce that’s so good, everyone are going to be begging for the recipe – and can be astonished how easy it is!

At the danger of sounding totally obnoxious – this is often a recipe for Chicken Satay skewers with Thai Peanut Sauce that really stacks up to your favourite Thai restaurant.


Thai Red Curry paste may be a “secret ingredient” in both the marinade and therefore the sauce. You only need about 2.5 tbsp which doesn’t sound like much, but we don’t want this to taste of red curry. We’re just using it as a flavour enhancer.

Ahead of publishing this recipe, I attempted the Thai Peanut Sauce with natural pure spread vs commercial spread (Kraft, now Bega) side by side to verify this!



  • 400 g/14oz coconut milk (1 can), full fat
  • 13-16 bamboo skewers , 16cm / 6.5" long (Note 1)


  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 600 g / 1.2lb chicken thighs , boneless skinless, cut into 2cm/4/5" pieces (Note 2)
  • 1 tbsp curry powder (Note 3)
  • 2 tsp red curry paste (Note 4)
  • 1 tsp salt


  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp red curry paste (Note 4)
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter, smooth (Note 5)
  • 2 tsp dark soy sauce (Note 6)
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar (Note 7)
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) water


  • Lime wedges (optional)
  • 2 tbsp peanuts finely choppe
  • Coriander / cilantro leaves and sliced red chilli (optional)


  1. If cooking on a BBQ or over charcoal, soak skewers for 2 hours in water.


  1. Mix together the chicken and Marinade with 1/4 cup of coconut milk, then set aside for at least 20 minutes, or overnight.
  2. Thread onto skewers - I do 4 to 5 pieces each.
  3. Heat 1.5 tbsp oil in a large non stick pan over medium high heat.
  4. Cook skewers in batches for 3 minutes on each side until golden.


  1. Place remaining coconut milk and Peanut Sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium low heat.
  2. Stir to combine then simmer, stirring every now and then, for 5 minutes.
  3. Adjust consistency with water - it should be a pourable but thickish sauce.
  4. Cover with lid and keep warm while cooking skewers.


  1. Pour some sauce into a bowl. Sprinkle with some peanuts - stir some through if you want.
  2. Pile satay skewers onto a platter, sprinkle with remaining peanuts, coriander and chilli.
  3. Serve with sauce on the side for dipping.
