This Cream of Mushroom Chicken is made with no soup! Healthy, gluten-free and can also be made dairy-free. Done on the stove top in 30 minutes.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp butter (or Earth Balance for dairy free)
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 - 6 oz chicken breasts, boneless skinless
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter (or Earth Balance for dairy free)
  • 1 Tbsp gluten-free all purpose flour (use regular flour if not gluten free)
  • *Optional salt & pepper (to taste)
Instructions
  1. Using a large skillet, heat to medium/high heat on the stove (I used my large cast iron pan)
  2. Melt the 1 Tbsp of butter, and add the sliced mushrooms, spreading around the pan evenly so they can brown.
  3. Once mushrooms browned on one side, add in the chopped rosemary. Cook down the mushrooms. In the last few minutes of cooking, add the chopped garlic. Season with salt & pepper if using.
  4. Remove the mushrooms from pan and set aside.
  5. To the same pan (don't clean it!), add in the chicken breasts (season lightly with salt & pepper if using) and brown on both sides (about 5 min each side). Remove chicken breasts from pan and set aside on a plate. They won't be cooked through yet, that's ok.
  6. To the same pan, add the other 1 Tbsp of butter, and 1 Tbsp of flour and whisk it together to make a rue. Cook the butter and flour together for about 20 seconds on medium/high heat. Then slowly add the can of coconut milk, while still whisking. Once its the consistency of a sauce that's thickened, add back the mushrooms, then also add back in the chicken breasts.
  7. Allow it all to simmer together on low/medium heat for another 6-7 minutes flipping the chicken occasionally until the chicken breasts are cooked through.
  8. Serve with extra sauce poured on each serving.
