Chicken and mushroom

Easy Chicken and Mushroom Recipe

  • Author: Suzy
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 11 minutes
  • Total Time: 21 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4 to 5 1x


For chicken

  • 1 1/2 lb (700g) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (I used Private Reserve Greek EVOO)

For Mushroom Sauce

  • 1 tbsp ghee or unsalted butter
  • 12 oz fresh large mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Parsley for garnish


  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees F. You will use it to keep the chicken warm.
  2. Cut chicken breasts in halves the horizontal way to make thinner chicken cutlets. Pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Combine oregano, paprika, and coriander in a small bowl. Season the chicken with the spice mixture on both sides.
  3. In a large skillet heat 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil until shimmering but not smoking. Add the chicken cutlets and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on one side, then turn over and cook for another 3 minutes or so. To check for doneness, cut into a piece with a thin-bladed knife and take a peek. Transfer the chicken to an ovenproof platter and put it in the oven.
  4. In the same skillet, now add a tiny bit more extra virgin olive oil. Add ghee and melt. Sautee the mushrooms for 5 minutes. Add broth, green onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add the chicken back to the pan, spoon some of the sauce on top. Serve immediately.


  • Leftovers storage tips: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days. And because there is no cream involved, you can also freeze leftovers for use at a later time. Thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating.
  • Reheating tips: Reheat in a skillet over medium heat until warmed through; add a little more chicken broth (and you may cover slightly.) Do not heat for too long or chicken may toughen and dry out.
