Mushroom Chicken in a Creamy Herb Sauce:

Mushroom chicken is all done in one pan which is so nice because my lazy side is always considering the dish factor. The whole thing is easy peasy and loaded with flavor. A big thank you to my sis, Anna, for sharing this delicious family friendly recipe with us years ago. It is a keeper!

Mushroom Chicken in Creamy Herb Sauce

Ingredients Chicken and Mushrooms:

This may seem like a ton of herbs (and it is!) but here me out. The herbs soften and blend into the sauce, giving it amazing fresh flavor while lightening the sauce. It is the easiest way to elevate a creamy sauce and make home cooking feel super fancy.

What is a Good Dill Substitute?

There isn’t anything quite like dill in flavor – it is very subtle but an incredible little herb! We LOVE dill and you can see all of our recipes with dill weed in them HERE.

  • Generally, 1 tsp of dried dill is equal to 3 tsp (or 1 Tbsp) of fresh dill.
  • Since the herbs don’t simmer for very long, I would highly recommend using fresh in this recipe. Dried herbs are great with lengthy marinating, lengthy cooking and high heat cooking (roasting and grilling).
  • If you don’t have dill, you omit it in this chicken mushrooms recipe or add more parsley and green onion. We make this year round and improvise with the herbs we have on hand.

P.S. Here’s the blue pan that we are using (our Amazon affiliate link) – because everyone always asks! We love it because it’s heavy cast iron, coated to keep it from sticking, is easy to clean and deep so it’s perfect for one pan chicken recipes.

    Hi Natasha, I haven’t made this yet but can’t wait as it looks delish.. So even watching the video without tasting result I just know it’s going to be a 5 star recipe…
    My question is.. If I don’t have fresh dill, is it ok to use dried,& how much instead of the 1/4 cup fresh? I did leave a comment with this question when came across video on YouTube.. But as most of comments were 2-5 years ago, I wasn’t sure if that was the place to ask re dill..
    I do subscribe and love your videos.. So natural & fab content..
    I lived in Canada for 15years, but have been back in Scotland for quite a while now..But love all North American recipes…
    Thanks so much.. Lorna😊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

      Hi Lorna! Thank you very much. I’m glad you’re loving the recipes. You can use as much as you prefer, but a general substitution ratio for substituting fresh and dried herbs: Ratio: 1 tablespoon fresh dill = 1 teaspoon dried dill. I hope you love this recipe!

    I have made this (similar) for many years. It’s very good, but MUCH better adding about 1/4 cup sherry or Marsala wine. Really kicks up the rich flavor!

    Hi Natasha, Used this recipe as a base. I had some sausages and vegetables to use up so adapted this with cooked vegetables and mushrooms. It was very delicious. Will use chicken next time but this was so good as well. Thanks for the very good recipes.

    I am making this tonight but after checking the nutritional percentages decided to nix the garlic salt altogether and just use fresh garlic. 46% sodium is just too high. The flavour is just a delicious and for those of us with high blood pressure a safer alternative. Thank you for your recipes.
