Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Onion Sauce

Chicken Linguine with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

This recipe has such a good flavor to it, I am not to happy with the pictures because I don't feel like it looks as good as it really is, and it really is delicious!. It is an easy recipe, nothing fancy, just a bunch of ingredients thrown together. 


1 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
1 small package of mushrooms
1 small white onion (you could less if you wanted)
3 large chicken breast sliced in half long ways
Linguine noodles
2 cups of heavy cream
1 1/2 Tablespoons of minced garlic
1 teaspoon Parmesan Cheese - optional
3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons of butter


Start cooking your noodles. While the noodles are cooking start the chicken If you are using fresh chicken breasts cut them in half the long way if they are really thick. Store bought frozen ones are probably thinner. Heat your skillet with 3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil. Season your chicken (I used Lawry's, dried parsley flakes, salt and pepper and I added a little bit of minced garlic on the top of each piece after I took the picture). Leave them cooking until brown on the bottom and turn. Keep cooking until golden on both sides. Leave the oil used to cook the chicken in the pan, there are lots of delicious flavors in there you can use for the mushrooms and onion.   

Put the mushrooms, sliced up onion, minced garlic, butter, pinch of parsley flakes and salt and pepper in pan you used for the chicken and saute until brown and soft. Now add  2 cups of cream and 1 1/2 cups of Chicken Broth. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes. In a separate bowl mix 1 Tablespoon of flour and enough water to it to make it thick but not super runny. Pour that into the sauce and mix well then let simmer for about 5 minutes or more. This will help it thicken. It doesn't get super thick but I like it that way.  

Cut chicken breasts in long slices and put on top of noodles and top with sauce. I sprinkled a little bit of Parmesan Cheese on top but if you don't have any don't worry about it. 

 The bread I served with it is a multi grain Baguette bread and it was outstanding! It is the first time I have bought it at Smith's and it is really good. 

The taste of this is wonderful. I think the mushroom sauce would be excellent as a soup as well with a few adjustments. When I make it I will share it with you. Also, cooking the chicken this way can be used in many different ways for recipes. It tastes wonderful and looks good too. Again, the bread was to die for, I hope you can find it. My husband did say "This is one of your best". I love that! I hope you like it. Please let me know if you make it. Would love to hear your thought! Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I am going to make this tonight. It looks great, but I am going to use drumsticks instead of breasts. The dark meat always has lots more flavor, and I'll have a better chance at getting my kids to eat it :)

    Thanks for the idea! Will let you know how it turns out.

  2. This was a mega hit at our house! Would love to have the mushroom soup recipe!

  3. I haven't made this forever! I love this recipe, thank you for reminding me of it.


I would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment, It gets lonely in here without them!
