Directions: Creamy Chicken Mushroom Asparagus Skillet Recipe

Cooking Directions

  • STEP 1.Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breast and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes per side. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  • STEP 2.In the same skillet, add butter and melt over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook until they release their moisture and start to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • STEP 3.Add minced garlic and cook for an additional minute until fragrant. Stir in flour and cook for another minute to cook off the raw flour taste.
  • STEP 4.Slowly whisk in chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 2-3 minutes.
  • STEP 5.Stir in heavy cream and season with salt, pepper, and dried thyme. Add cooked chicken back to the skillet and simmer for another 2-3 minutes to heat through.
  • STEP 6.Add asparagus to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes until tender-crisp. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh parsley.
  • STEP 7.Serve the creamy chicken mushroom asparagus skillet over rice or pasta for a complete meal.

Cooking Tips

  • Make sure to cook the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F to ensure it is fully cooked.
  • Feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers or peas for extra color and flavor.
  • For a lighter version, you can use half-and-half or milk instead of heavy cream.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can add a cornstarch slurry (cornstarch mixed with water) to the skillet and cook until thickened.

Storage and Serving

  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat the skillet dish in a microwave or on the stovetop until heated through.
  • Serve the creamy chicken mushroom asparagus skillet as a main dish with a side of crusty bread or a fresh salad.
