Creamed Mushroom and Brie Chicken…the best any night of the week dinner that also feels extra special. Lightly seared chicken with nutty browned butter and plenty of herbs. This chicken is finished in a simple white wine pan sauce with caramelized mushrooms and brie for a touch of decadence. It’s delicious, especially when served over creamy herby mashed potatoes or pasta. Every bite is layered with caramelized mushrooms and a deliciously creamy cheese sauce.

So many of my recipes have a story behind them. Maybe a family member requested a dish or I’ll make something with a memory in mind. Sometimes I have one idea, test it, and the final outcome ends up being a recipe that’s totally different than the original idea (and much better).

But this recipe? The story is so simple. I had chicken, mushrooms, wine, and cream, and it was our first cold, snowy night in October. I just wanted to make something that would be quick and comforting with what I had on hand. Because going outside just did not look fun.

Enter this chicken…which I guess did have a mini-story.

It’s lightly inspired by a french style white wine braised chicken, but made in a much simpler way.

There’s so much flavor and deliciousness to this dish, and while it is not my prettiest recipe ever, it’s truly delicious. And simple, which we can all welcome with open arms.

The details

Start with the chicken. Instead of dredging the chicken in flour, or doing anything fancy to it, we’re keeping it simple. Just salt and pepper and then a quick sear on either side. Add in a little butter and let it slowly brown around the chicken.

Next, toss in all the mushrooms and cook them together with some shallots and fresh herbs. If you don’t have fresh herbs on hand, dried is great too!

Now, add the wine. The wine, while not necessary, really adds great flavor to this dish. Simmer it down to cook out the alcohol flavor a bit. If you don’t drink or cook with wine, chicken broth works great too!

Then finish the sauce off with a good splash of cream.

Now the brie

The brie was added very spur of the moment, but it was such a good addition. It really makes this sauce extra special, which I think is nice with all fall dinners.

The brie adds a richness and creaminess and I love the flavor when paired with the mushrooms.

Finish the chicken in the oven, then top with fresh herbs.

For serving

We love our carbs over here, so I served this saucy, creamy chicken over twirls of pasta. Twas’ delicious.

Other sides options that would be great? Definitely mashed potatoes, steamed rice, or, if you’re looking for something on the lighter side, spaghetti squash is always a delicious healthy option.

You can’t go wrong either way. The sauce makes just about anything you serve alongside it great. Bread and side salad would make this meal perfectly complete!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Sear on both sides until golden, about 3-5 minutes per side. Add 1 tablespoon butter and allow the butter to brown around the chicken, about 2 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
    3. To the skillet, add the mushrooms. Cook undisturbed for 5 minutes or until golden. Add 2 tablespoons butter, the shallots, thyme, sage, oregano, and a pinch each of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook 4-5 minutes, until fragrant. Add the garlic. Cook another 2-3 minutes, until the mushrooms have caramelized.
    4. Pour in the wine. Cook 10 minutes until reduced slightly, then pour in the cream and stir in the brie. Nestle the chicken into the sauce. Bake 20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
    5. Serve the chicken and sauce over mashed potatoes, pasta, or steamed rice. Top with fresh thyme or parsley.

    I’ve made this for friends a few times and it’s been amazing each time. I will usually add an entire small wheel of brie and it turns out delicious, of course. The sauce doesn’t thicken up a huge amount but goes great with noodles. Served it with brown rice flour noodles for a friend on a GF diet and it was a hit.

  2. So good! I added some of the brie and a few spoonfuls of the cream sauce to the mashed potatoes to blend the flavors. Served them in a large shallow bowl with lots of sauce and crusty grilled Italian bread. 🤤

  3. I have made this dish twice, and i am a true fan. I cannot wait to have company over, I will definitely serve this. I have tried it over rice and noodles, did not disappoint.

    1. Hi Robin,

    I want to make this for a dinner party. Can I do the stove top part before they come, refrigerate it and the. Finish it when they arrive and we are having appetizers?

    Made this for the second time and love it even more the second time! Paired with fresh fettuccine it was such a hit for New Year dinner! Made it in a pan and then transferred to Pyrex to cook in the oven, super easy but tastes complex!

    1. Hey Jessica,
      Fantastic! Thanks a lot for making this recipe, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! Happy New Year!🎆 xxT

    Best Christmas Eve dinner! The brie add on was so delicious. My kids loved every bite as well as my husband. Definitely a recipe I will come back to and make when I feel like I want to cook a fancy dinner.

    This is sooo good and easy! Prep always takes me a lot longer. I’d be curious the weight of your chicken. Our grocery packages all the meat they sell in house and i have a hunch our chicken cuts are smaller than what is sold elsewhere. I used 8 pieces and had plenty of room in the pan.

    1. Hi Fern,
      Wonderful! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for giving it a try! Happy Holidays!🎄🎁 xTieghan

      1. The second time was as good as the first. I’ll try cream cheese bc the nearest Brie is over 100 miles away so I’ve been waiting to have this again. This time i used 4 pieces of chicken as they were much larger than last time. Maybe bc our chickens are processed in our little local grocery store. 🐓

        1. Hey Fern,
          Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am thrilled to hear that it was enjoyed! Have a great day:) xxT

    I just made this last night for my husband and I because I happened to have all the ingredients already and…..woah. Just finished off the leftovers for lunch and wishing I had more. We served it with steamed rice but I can see how it would be good over anything. That sauce is to die for. Loved it!

    1. Hi Holly,
      Thank you so very much for giving this recipe a try, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! Happy Holidays!🎄🎁

  10. I want to make this for 20 people. Can I cook the chicken on the stove and then move it to an aluminum pan and put it in the oven? Or what size Dutch oven do you recommend?

    1. Hi Ana,
      Wow! Yes, I would probably cook on the stove and move to the oven, I don’t think there’s a dutch oven large enough for 20 servings. xTieghan

    This was so delicious and so much easier than I expected! Served over spaghetti squash with bread on the side. Perfect dinner for a cold night.

    1. Hi Erin,

  12. What a great way to use up leftover Brie! Just like Natalie I would have never thought to cook with Brie and this dish certainly did not disappoint.
    My brie didn’t melt too well but this dish was delicious regardless.

  13. 5 stars
    delicious!! Used cream cheese instead of Brie (had one non Brie fan in the house) and chicken broth instead of white wine. Still INCREDIBLE. Had the “Thanksgiving / holiday” taste with the sage, but better than any turkey dish! Making it again.

    1. Hey Caitlin,
      Happy Friday! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks to much for giving it a try!! xTieghan
