Parmesan Cream Sauce Chicken and Mushroom Skillet is a great meal that is full of rich flavor that satisfies cravings and wows everyone at your dinner table!



For the chicken

  • 6 chicken thighs (bone-in, skin-on or off)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

For the parmesan cream sauce

  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 200g diced bacon
  • 400g sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 cup heavy cream OR half and half*
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Additional chopped fresh parsley for garnish
  • Fresh shaved or grated parmesan for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C | 400°F.
  2. Combine olive oil, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.
  3. Rub the oil mixture over the chicken & completely coat.
  4. Heat oven proof skillet or pan on medium high heat. Sear chicken skin-side down first, until skin is crisp and golden brown. Rotate and sear the other side (about 2-3 minutes per side).
  5. Transfer to oven and roast until completely cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.
  6. When chicken is cooked, remove from skillet & set aside. Pour out of skillet half of the liquid left in the pan.
  7. Using the same skillet, sauté the garlic in the reserved liquid in the skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add bacon and cook until it just starts to crisp. Add mushrooms and herbs and cook until mushrooms start to soften.
  8. Pour in the cream, chicken broth and parmesan; simmer until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  9. Season with pepper.
  10. Add the chicken back into the pan; allow to simmer for 1-2 minutes in the cream to take on the flavours.
  11. Garnish with parsley and shaved or grated parmesan, if desired. Serve over rice, pasta, with vegetables or my favourite with a baguette to soak up the yummy sauce.
