Why you should make this Mushroom Chicken
I tell you everything is wonderful and delicious about this Mushroom Chicken.
Really easy, flavorful, delicious. You will always love the texture from chicken and mushrooms. Indeed there are two things that are standout and really take this recipe over the top.
First, I coat the chicken in flour and that my friends is all. This breading makes really sure the chicken has a nice texture. You don’t need any waiting time, just add into flour and you are ready to prepare.
Second, add a little bit of a tang. I go with lemon juice and this makes Mushroom Chicken truly even more delicious.
What you need for this Mushroom Chicken Recipe
Chicken filets: I use plant based, but use whatever you prefer. Keep in mind that depending on the filet size, you could cut them in half.
Which type of mushrooms to use? You can go with cremini, chanterelle, oyster, porcini or any that you like. A combination is also great for texture and flavor.
I use olive oil to fry the chicken. Dairy free butter is used to cook the mushrooms and make the sauce rich and creamy.
Garlic and parmesan are essential for the flavor of the sauce, for which non dairy heavy cream adds a lot of richness. So good and delicious.
For a little tang and acidity, lemon juice is the right choice. Makes everything so bold and bright.
How to make Mushroom Chicken
Clean mushrooms, brush them properly and slice them.
To flour the chicken, you can either use a bowl or a Ziploc bag. For the bowl, just put flour in it and dip the chicken into it. If you prefer the Ziplock bag, give flour and chicken in it, shake back and forth until chicken is entirely covered.
For cooking the chicken, heat olive oil in a pan. When hot, give the chicken into it and fry it for about 5 minutes. Flip once. Finally remove from pan.
In to the same pan melt butter. Add mushrooms and garlic, cook for 2 minutes, mix with parmesan and heavy cream. Stir until a creamy sauce is formed. Season with pinch salt and pepper, add in lemon juice.
Put chicken back into sauce and cook for 4 minutes more. Serve Mushroom Chicken on plates, enjoy.
