Ingredients

  • 4-6 large chicken thighs, OR 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2/3 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half and half OR heavy cream (for richer, creamier flavor use heavy cream)
  • 2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus additional for topping
  • fresh parsley or thyme, for topping

Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine chicken, oil, salt and pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning and toss.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the chicken on both sides for 2-4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • Add butter to pan and stir until melted. Stir in garlic and mushrooms. Continue to cook 3-4 minutes over medium-high heat until butter begins to darken and mushrooms are tender.
  • Sprinkle flour into the pan and stir to combine. Whisk in chicken broth and milk or heavy cream. Stir in parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Return chicken to pan and spoon a little of the sauce over the chicken. Cover and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
  • Spoon more sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with cracked black pepper, grated parmesan cheese, and fresh parsley or thyme and serve immediately.
