Creamy Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken {With Spaghetti Squash Noodles!}

I love absolutely everything in this meal – chicken, a creamy sauce, garlic, mushrooms and spinach! This recipe was originally posted as a one-skillet dish, but it’s summer and I love the smokey flavor of grilled chicken so we made it this way. If opting for a one dish skillet meal, simply pan-fry the chicken first and set aside while you make the sauce.

Creamy Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken {With Spaghetti Squash Noodles!}
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced thin
  • ¼ cup margarine or butter (I use margarine to keep the calories down)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minded
  • 1 carton sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half and half cream
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  1. Pan-fry or grill chicken to your liking (easy, right?) and set aside
  2. To make the sauce, melt margarine in a large skillet, then add the garlic and mushrooms and cook until tender.
  3. Whisk in the chicken broth, cream, garlic powder, pepper and salt.
  4. Add flour to thicken.
  5. Add in spinach and let simmer as the sauce thickens (just a few minutes)
  6. Finally, add the chicken back to the skillet and turn over to coat well with the sauce.
  7. Serve on spaghetti squash or noodles.

Adding this recipe to My Fitness Pal, using spaghetti squash and 1 chicken breast (2 thinly sliced halves) gave me a calorie count of about 450 per serving.
