Grilled Herb Chicken on Creamy Mushroom sauce

Pan grilled Chicken breast on Creamy Mushroom sauce

This recipe never gets old for me and is kind of a classic! Simple herbed chicken grilled to perfection and served on creamy mushroom gravy and a side of stir fried veggies + rice. Pretty much a snooze fest!

To make this perfect meal, you’ll need:

1 chicken breast, sliced lengthwise to half (makes it easier to cook)

2 tsp Italian herb mix

100 gms sliced cremini mushrooms

Salt and Pepper

3 cloves Minced Garlic

½ medium chopped Yellow onion

¼ cup table cream

2 tbsp salted butter

2 tbsp parmesan

2 tbsp Olive oil

1 tbsp AP flour

½ cup water

Thyme leaves – optional


Lets start by marinating the chicken breast in salt, pepper and Italian herb mix atleast for half an hour

Chicken breast sliced lengthwise, flattened and marinated

To prepare the sauce in a pan, add butter, 1 tbsp olive oil and minced garlic. Sautee for about a minute on medium-low flame and add chopped onion. Once the onion turns translucent, add the flour and roast for about a minute

Add sliced mushrooms, salt and pepper. Let the mushrooms sweat, it takes about 3-4 mins and then add ½ cup warm water, mix and cover cook on low flame for 5 mins

Then add cream, parmesan and thyme, mix well and simmer for 2-3 mins. Turn the heat off

In a skillet/cast iron pan, add 2 tbsp olive oil and let it heat on medium high. As soon as you see the first wisp of smoke, place the chicken breast. Enjoy the sizzling sound and as soon as the sides whiten, takes 2-3 mins, flip it over and let the other side cook for 2-3 mins

Turn the heat down to low and cook for another 2 mins. Your grilled chicken is done, Its important to let it rest for atleast 2 minutes off heat before you cut into it, otherwise the juices will run out making it dry and tough

In a plate, place the mushroom sauce and top with juicy chicken breast. Serve with choice of sides like steamed rice, stir fried veggies, mashed potatoes, wedges, etc
