Easy Creamy Mushroom Dijon Chicken

If you can turn on an oven and stir things on the stove then you can make this super-rich Creamy Mushroom Dijon Chicken! This keto-friendly recipe packs in so much flavor in just 30 minutes! I am always down for a quick-cooking hack. most creamy sauces require a roux and heavy cream to create a rich sauce. I like to cheat when I can so I almost always use a small amount of cream cheese to give the thick, thick richness to any cream sauce. The best part about cream cheese is that it comes in so many different varieties! Keto? Cool, use full-fat cream cheese. Dairy-free? Nice, use a non-dairy (usually vegan) cream cheese. If you don't care- use whatever kind of cream cheese you'd like! Preferences aside, this is an incredibly flavorful, quick and easy, comfort food!

Tips for recipe success

  • This makes a pretty thick sauce! Feel free to thin it out by adding more chicken broth or water

  • Chop up the mushrooms or don't! I chose to chop mine to make them into more bite-size pieces but to make prep easier for you feel free to toss them in as-is!

  • I used a light cream cheese for this recipe. If you are keto you may choose to use full-fat cream cheese. If you're dairy-free, you can choose to use dairy-free cream cheese!

  • Chicken thighs are a very forgiving protein. They are full of flavor and it's hard to dry them out! For that reason, I almost always prefer chicken thighs over chicken breasts for my recipe. If you prefer chicken breasts cook at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes

  • This recipe is dijon mustard forward. If you would like to tame down the dijon flavor, simply add one tbsp of dijon instead of 2 tbsp
