4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 ounces of mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup of chicken broth
1 cup of heavy cream
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of dried thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley for garnish
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
3. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
4. In the same skillet, add the onions, mushrooms, and garlic. Sauté until the mushrooms have softened and the onions are translucent.
5. Sprinkle the flour over the mushroom mixture and stir well to combine. Cook for an additional minute to cook off the raw flour taste.
6. Slowly pour in the chicken broth, stirring constantly to avoid any lumps. Continue to stir until the mixture thickens.
7. Reduce the heat to low and add the heavy cream and dried thyme. Stir until the sauce is creamy and well combined.
8. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, nestling them into the sauce. Spoon some of the sauce over the chicken.
9. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is bubbly and golden.
10. Remove from the oven and let the casserole rest for a few minutes before serving.
11. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with your favorite side dishes, such as rice or roasted vegetables. Enjoy!
