Chicken Thigh Mushroom Cream

As a mushroom growing enthusiast, I have always been fascinated by the versatility of mushrooms in various recipes. One of my all-time favorite dishes to prepare is chicken thigh mushroom cream. The rich and earthy flavor of the mushrooms combined with the tender juiciness of chicken thighs creates a truly indulgent and satisfying meal.


  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound cremini or white mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sear the chicken thighs until golden brown on both sides. Set them aside on a plate.
  3. In the same skillet, melt the butter and add the sliced mushrooms. Sauté until they are browned and have released their juices.
  4. Add the minced garlic and sauté for another minute.
  5. Pour in the chicken broth and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in the heavy cream and return the chicken thighs to the skillet.
  7. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
  8. Sprinkle with chopped parsley before serving.

This recipe never fails to impress dinner guests with its creamy, aromatic goodness. The umami-packed mushrooms, the succulent chicken, and the luxurious cream make for a combination that’s truly divine!


This dish pairs beautifully with a side of buttery mashed potatoes or al dente pasta. The creamy mushroom sauce coats the starch perfectly, creating a heavenly bite in every forkful.
