Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken
Garlic chicken with mushroom in a creamy sauce. This Instant Pot dinner recipe is so easy, fuss-free and perfect for dinner tonight. The creamy sauce is so delicious with rice or pasta, or you can just serve the chicken on its own, with a side dish such as roasted potatoes.
Little G loves chicken made with cream and he loves mushrooms. I made this lightened up creamy garlic mushroom chicken using my Instant Pot. I absolutely loved the flavors; the chicken thighs were so tender and soft. The Cremini mushrooms (you can use white mushrooms) adds a nice earthy note to this recipe.
How to Make Creamy Garlic Sauce
This is one of the most basic sauces. Saute the garlic with olive oil and add chicken stock, whipping cream, salt and lemon juice. I chose whipping cream instead of heavy whipping cream so the sauce is not too rich and lower in calorie. I also love my sauce with a bit of heat so I always add a few dashes of cayenne pepper.
Instant Pot vs. Slow Cooker
I used Instant Pot to make this recipe. First I sauteed the chicken in the pot and then I cook it on high pressure for 10 minutes. You can make this recipe in a slow cooker if you don’t have an Instant Pot. Saute the chicken on a skillet on stove top, then transfer everything to the slow cooker and cook on high heat for 3 hours.
Side Dish Ideas
I love serving this creamy garlic mushroom chicken with rice or plain spaghetti/pasta. Just ladle the chicken, mushroom and the creamy sauce over and you will have a perfect and delicious meal for the entire family. You can also serve the chicken with any side dishes you desire. This recipe is tried and tested and even the pickiest eaters would approve.
