You guys are just like me, you love a good one pan dinner! This One Pan Mushroom Chicken has become a regular in our dinner rotation. It is easy, it doesn’t require a ton of ingredients. It is great all by itself as a low carb food or pairs well with roasted broccoli or if you aren’t keto I’m sure it great with pasta. It is just what you want for a busy weeknight.
How do you make One Pan Mushroom Chicken?
The flavor is a little reminiscent of chicken marsala. In this recipe we season thinly sliced chicken breast and sear them until they have a nice color. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. Then we add butter, garlic, mushrooms and white cooking wine or chicken broth and allow the mushrooms to simmer and the liquid to reduce.
When the liquid is almost gone add butter and cream to create a rich mushroom sauce. Add the chicken back to the skillet, top with Swiss cheese and cover and allow the dish to simmer and give the flavors time to meld.
That is it. This is really a very simple, straightforward dish! The best part is that it doesn’t require a ton of dishes, chopping or prep work! I happen to think the leftovers are even better, and it reheats beautifully. I think this would be a great option for keto meal prep. Add in some cauliflower rice and you’ve got a delicious low carb lunch!
