Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Chicken

Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Chicken

Introduction

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide whole wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

    This was super - I added some extra ingredients: parsley, garlic powder, dijon mustard and sage to the broth. Then I sauteed muchrooms and onions added them. When the chicken was nearly done, I added some broccoli as well. My five-year old and my picky husband inhaled it! Thanks! - 12/17/08

    Sounds like some great additions! I didn't have onions or garlic the day I made this, so next time I will use them!

    My husband and I loved this recipe. I went ahead and added the suggestions of garlic powder, onions, sage, parsley,mushrooms and I used yellow mustard. Did not have the Dijon Mustard. It was very very good. Served it over some rice. Will make again!!! - 1/22/09

    Made this for supper tonight served over noodles. My husband, son and I absolutely loved it. Compared it to stroganoff without all the fat. Will definitely have it again - maybe next time substituting venison for the chicken. - 1/30/09

    I saute' the chicken first in a little bit of olive oil, diced garlic and onions. It helps to make the chicken more flavorable. - 5/13/09

    This wasn't my favorite meal, but it wasn't bad and it was really easy to make. Next time though I'd do it with extra lean ground beef. The chicken just didn't add enough flavor. - 1/19/09

    My mom made a similar dish, but she would cook everything separately. My dad, brother, and I would mix it all up on our plates, so she started serving it this way. I used to cook this all the time in college is bigger batches, since it freezes well. And there's really no limit to the variations! - 12/17/08

    Loved this! Added an extra can of mushrooms as I LOVE mushrooms, & also added a 1/2 of an onion, a little bit of garlic powder, dried parsley, & pepper. Served over rice (would recommend using 2 c. rice, 1 c. wasn't enough). 1.5 lbs = ~4.5 chicken breasts, FYI. Makes a lot! - 2/16/09

    Good and easy! I made this using tofu instead of chicken and vegetable broth instead of the chicken broth. I served it over some bread, open-face sandwich style. - 12/17/08

    Not a bad dinner. I think it needs onions and garlic though. I add a bit of mustard (2 Tbsp) to the soup to punch it up. - 12/15/08

    Thank you for the nice comment about my recipe! You can actually vary this a bit for a change and use Healthy Request Cream of Chicken Soup and cooked broccoli cuts instead of the mushroom soup and mushrooms. My family loves it both ways! Blessings!

    I made this last night. It was amazing. I didn't have cream cheese on hand, so I left that out and I regret it since I think the sauce would have been thicker with it! I also added some lemon pepper and chili powder! So great and easy. Loved it! - 3/4/09

    I am glad your 4 yr old liked this! It is rather tasty if I say so myself...LOL! Vary it a bit...use cream of chicken soup and broccoli, or cream of celery soup and carrots next time. Really, the combinations are up to your own taste buds as long as you stick to the basic recipe! Blessings!

    I make a mushroom gravy for pork chops that is kind of similar to this... but this is so much creamier! It goes perfect with chicken! I like adding some onions, garlic and tons of chopped mushrooms. This is a keeper for sure!! - 8/12/10

    I really liked this recipe, thanks for sharing! I did look at the other comments & made a few little changes. I used fresh mushrooms, about 2 cups worth-I love mushrooms! I sauteed them with 1/2 onion & some minced garlic before adding to the mixture. I'll definitely make again. - 3/8/10
