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!

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.

How to Make Chicken Mushroom Skillet:
Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat and add 1/2 Tbsp butter and 1/2 Tbsp oil. Once oil is hot, add thickly sliced mushrooms and season with 1/2 tsp garlic salt. Let mushrooms sizzle about 5 min, stirring occasionally until they are golden brown then remove to a plate.
Season chicken all over with 1 tsp garlic salt. In the same pan over medium heat, add another 1/2 Tbsp butter and 1/2 Tbsp oil. Add chicken in a single layer and sauté about 2 min on each side or until just cooked through.
Add minced garlic and sauté 1 minute, stirring frequently until garlic is fragrant. Add chopped dill, parsley, green onion to the pan and sauté/stir another 1 minute to soften herbs.
Return mushrooms to the pan then stir in 3/4 cup heavy cream. Bring to a light boil and continue to cook 2 min until sauce is slightly thickened then remove from heat. Sauce will thicken more as it cools. Season with more garlic salt, to taste if needed.
