Ranging from simple skillets to hearty sandwiches to creamy pasta, you’re sure to find the perfect fit for any occasion in this list of healthy chicken and mushroom recipes.

1. Creamy Chicken & Mushrooms

This tender, rich chicken dish uses only three ingredients: chicken cutlets, mushrooms, white wine, heavy cream, and fresh parsley.

Use whichever type of mushrooms you prefer: whether you use shiitake, button, or portobello, the mushrooms will add a unique flavor to the dish.

To make your own chicken cutlets, simply cut chicken breasts in half crosswise, place between two layers of plastic wrap, and pound with a meat mallet or a skillet.

2. Baked Cream of Mushroom Chicken

Simple, quick, and crowd-pleasing, this recipe checks all the boxes.

3. Creamy Mushroom Chicken

Made using just one skillet, this healthy, easy recipe tastes light and elegant, but it’s still a filling meal.

Tender chicken smothered in a delicious garlicky sauce with button mushrooms… what could be better?

Top the dish with fresh parsley for the perfect finishing touch.
