Introduce a dash of gourmet flair to your table with our Mushroom Chicken Breast. Simple yet sophisticated, this dish is your secret weapon for impressing guests during casual meals or spontaneous dinner gatherings. As the chicken gently cooks, it melds with the mushrooms, crafting a delectable sauce that beckons to be sopped up with a piece of crusty bread—a ritual fondly referred to as “making the scarpetta” in Italian culinary traditions.

Our Chicken in Creamy Mushroom Sauce is first lightly dredged, then pan-seared alongside savory Champignon mushrooms. A final sprinkle of freshly chopped parsley elevates the aromatic harmony between the tender chicken and earthy mushrooms, guaranteeing a showstopper of a dish.

So, gather your ingredients, don your apron, and ignite your passion—it’s time to cook up the Mushroom Chicken Breast!

  1. To prepare the Chicken Breast with Mushrooms, start by finely chopping the onion and then sautéing it inside a pan with a drizzle of evo oil, a clove of garlic and a knob of butter until golden brown. Meanwhile, flour the chicken slices in a dish containing flour and, after washing and cleaning the mushrooms, slice them.

  2. When the onion is golden brown, add the mushrooms to the pan, season with salt and pepper, deglaze with white wine, cover with a lid and cook for 10-15 minutes.

It is not mandatory to use Champignon mushrooms to make this recipe: you can also use porcini mushrooms (reducing the expected amount), or dried mushrooms as an alternative.


Should you notice during cooking that the cooking juices are shrinking too much, add half a cup of hot water.


Our advice is to consume Chicken Breast with Mushrooms at the moment. However, if you feel it is necessary, you can store it with the cooking juices inside an airtight plastic container stored in the refrigerator.
