Garlic mushroom chicken breast is a delicious low carb quick meal, best served with pasta or mashed potato. The chicken breasts are perfectly seasoned and seared to lock in all the juices. With little time you can make a great dinner served with a green salad on the side as a healthy option. Watch the video in the recipe card below!
Tender Chicken Breast
Using sliced chunks of chicken breast in this recipe speeds up the cooking process, all the chicken breast slices are seared at the same time, and when later added to the sauce it continues to cook without getting dry.
You can use chicken thighs instead, but if you followed the recipe’s instructions below you won’t need to worry about overcooking the chicken breast!
How to make Garlic Mushroom Chicken
Skinless, boneless chicken breast cut in medium size chunks. We will use olive oil and butter because the combination gives this dish an outstanding flavor. The spices are simple, onion powder, black pepper, oregano, and paprika.
I have used button mushrooms but feel free to use the type you like. The first step after melting the butter and heating it up with olive oil is searing the seasoned chicken breast, so keep the flame high and when the chicken is golden remove it from the pan.
Add more butter sauté the mushrooms and then add the garlic and the stock. Add the chicken to the sauce and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
How to serve Mushroom Chicken breast
You can serve this garlic mushroom chicken with pasta. I prefer spaghetti. If you would like to serve it with mashed potato, then don’t add much liquid or any to the mashed potato because the sauce is thin, and it will make the mashed potato creamy.
Short grain rice tastes better with the mushroom chicken sauce; it is starchy and will hold the sauce.

I would eat mushrooms on anything so this is right up my alley!! I definitely need to try this!
That sounds reallyi good. I'd love it over rice or pasta. I can see doing it over potatoes, but I think I would actually spoon it over cubed potatoes.
You can have it with rice too, but my favorite is mashed potato.
This would be a tasty dish for dinner! I tend to love all things with garlic so I'm excited to try this out.
That looks so good. I just purchased a package of chicken today and have mushrooms in the fridge so I'm ready to try this!
Oh now this sounds delicious - it always amazes me the different things you can do with chicken. I definitely need to try this for myself.
The chicken breast will come out juicy and flavorful, do give it a try!

Made this last night on a cast iron skillet and used it to top some bob Evans mashed potatoes. I drained all the liquid before topping. Turned out fantastic. Easy recipe after you do the prep work. Thanks for sharing.
