Creamy Mushroom Chicken

This is one of those dishes that screams comfort. It’s got so much flavor and that creamy mushroom sauce is absolutely delicious! I add a jalapeño pepper in there, and it adds a hint of spice that works so well in the creamy sauce.
You can serve this with cauliflower mash or rice but I just love with a side of romaine lettuce dressed with evoo and lemon. Simple and delicious!

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs cut in half
  • 1 teaspoon adobo
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 tablespoon parsley plus more for garnish
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lemon cut in half


  • Cut the chicken thighs in half and flatten out using a meat tenderizer. This is important because it helps the chicken cook quickly and evenly.

  • Add half of the chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned on one side, then flip and cook on the other side till browned about 4 minutes per side.
  • Remove the chicken to a plate and cover with foil.
  • Repeat the cooking process with the rest of the chicken and keep covered.
  • Do not clean the pan because those bits in the pan add a ton of flavor.
  • Add one tablespoon of butter and mushrooms. Sauté the mushrooms for about 5-6 minutes,
  • Add the chopped onion and jalapeño. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the chopped garlic and sauté for just a minute.
  • Add the heavy cream, resting juices from the chicken, all the herbs, and cheese and pepper. Add half of the lemon. Mix well and taste.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Add the chicken back into the pan and simmer for 2 minutes, just until heated through.
  • Pour the mushroom sauce over the chicken.
