Creamy Chicken with Mushrooms and Onions

Just another chicken dinner night! One of my family’s favorites, but I try to kinda switch it up a bit to keep it fresh.

Creamy Chicken with Mushrooms and Onions


2 Chicken Breasts
1 thinly sliced onion
1 carton of sliced mushrooms
3/4 cup of dry sherry (cooking wine) and/or a dry white wine
1/3 stick of butter
1 cup sour cream
Fresh Herbs like Thyme (or rosemary, marjoram, etc.) You could add dried herbs if that is all you have
salt and pepper to taste


Brown your chicken on both sides- about 5-6 minutes. Take them out of the pan.
Add your sliced onions, mushrooms, and herbs to the pan with one tablespoon of butter for about 3-4 minute
Add the sherry/wine and the rest of the butter and reduce down for about 5 minutes, then add your chicken back in the pan and continue to cook until chicken is done.

At the end, take the chicken out and add in your sour cream and mix all together. I sliced the chicken breasts up and added it back to the pan with the sauce. Then I served it on top of brown rice with a side of veggies and spinach salad.
I didn’t take a picture, but it looked similar to this, just a bit creamier.
