WHAT GOES INTO CHICKEN WITH MUSHROOM SAUCE?

The ingredients for this dish are quite simple but work like magic when put together with a bit of loving care. 

I like to use skinless, boneless chicken breasts as they are easy to use and are slightly less calorific than chicken thighs.  

For the sauce you will need button mushrooms. But if you are after a bit more interesting flavours and textures, use a mix of wild mushrooms. Check my Mushrooms Stroganoff recipe, where I write extensively about different types of mushrooms. 

I also use fresh rosemary to complement earthy mushroom flavour, shallots, garlic, dry white wine, heavy cream and tiny bit of wholegrain mustard. 

You can also use thyme, parsley, tarragon, or any other herb blend of your choice.

HOW DO I MAKE MUSHROOM SAUCE FOR CHICKEN? 

As you can imagine the mushroom sauce is the star of the show here. It truly makes the dish and the good news is that the sauce is very easy and quick to make. 

Mushrooms themselves bring lots of flavour to the table and once paired with fragrant and woodsy rosemary, they indeed shine. 

We start the sauce by browning the mushrooms, which intensifies their flavour, then adding shallots and a fair amount of minced garlic. Once the mushrooms are golden, and the shallots and garlic are soft, I like to hit the pan with a bit of dry white wine.

WHAT DOES WINE DO WHEN ADDED TO SAUCES?

Hitting a hot pan with a bit of alcohol after browning meat and vegetables is called deglazing.  A very useful technique that accomplishes two things.

Browning is usually done at high temperature and if left on for too long, can causing burning and consequently turning food bitter. Deglazing of a pan prevents burning, as added liquid lowers the temperature immediately.

It also infuses the sauce with more flavour as burnt to the bottom bits are released into the sauce. The wine itself enhances and balances the sauce. 

I finish the sauce with a bit of chicken stock, a good amount of cream and a tablespoon of mustard. 

WHAT CAN I SERVE WITH CHICKEN WITH MUSHROOM SAUCE?

A number of side dishes works exceptionally well here. I would recommend to choose something rather plain like rice or potatoes as the sauce itself is rich enough and needs to be balanced out by the side dish.

Creamy Garlic Parmesan Mushroom Chicken (Low-Carb Keto)

To Make Creamy Mushroom chicken you will need:

Chicken Breasts: This recipe calls for boneless, skinless chicken breasts but thinly pounded boneless, skinless chicken thighs will also work. The chicken breasts are cut in half horizontally to help the chicken cook fast and make thinner fillets.

Mushrooms: This recipe will work with just about any type of mushrooms. Sliced White, Crimini, or baby Bella mushrooms are preferred.

Onion: Finely minced onion or shallots. The recipe can do without the onions but why not? They add a nice caramelized flavor to the cream sauce.

Garlic: Lots of fresh minced or crush garlic. The recipe calls for 3-4 but I went ahead and used 5 because I’m hooked on garlic.

Heavy Cream: Aka double cream or heavy whipping cream. The recipe will also work with half & half, light cream or evaporated milk.

Parmesan Cheese: Freshly grated parmesan cheese is optional but highly recommended. You can also use pre-grated parmesan.

Herbs: A few tablespoons of fresh herbs really do take this dish to the next level. You can use parsley, chives, rosemary, dill, cilantro, or leave out the herbs all together if you don’t have any on hand.
