Creamy Mushroom Chicken With Rice

I absolutely love making creamy mushroom chicken with rice. It’s a comforting and hearty dish that’s perfect for a cozy night in. The combination of tender chicken, flavorful mushrooms, and creamy sauce over a bed of fluffy rice is simply irresistible.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 cups cooked rice


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 6-7 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the onion and garlic. Cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the mushrooms and thyme to the skillet and cook until the mushrooms are tender and golden, about 5 minutes.
  5. Pour in the chicken broth and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  6. Stir in the heavy cream and return the chicken to the skillet. Simmer until the sauce thickens slightly and the chicken is cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve the creamy mushroom chicken over a bed of cooked rice.

This dish is so versatile. You can use different types of mushrooms for varied flavors, or add a splash of white wine for an extra layer of richness. The creamy sauce pairs beautifully with the rice, creating a decadent combination that’s sure to impress.

If you’re a fan of mushrooms like me, this recipe is a must-try. The earthy flavor of the mushrooms combined with the succulent chicken and creamy sauce creates a symphony of flavors that will have you coming back for seconds.

So next time you’re craving a satisfying and indulgent meal, give creamy mushroom chicken with rice a try. It’s a true crowd-pleaser and never fails to hit the spot!
