Ingredients Substitutions For Cream Of Mushroom Chicken
Chicken Broth Substitutions
We used low-sodium chicken broth in this recipe. Some substitutions for chicken broth are vegetable broth or your milk of choice.
Cream Of Mushroom Soup Alternatives
We used Amy’s Semi-Condensed Cream Of Mushroom Soup in this recipe, but feel free to use your favorite cream of mushroom soup. If you don’t like cream of mushroom soup, try any cream soup you enjoy. Some other great options are cream of celery, cream of broccoli, and cream of potato soup.
Which Mushrooms To Use
I love cremini mushrooms, also known as baby Bella mushrooms. They are the same as portobello mushrooms and button mushrooms. Cremini mushrooms are in the middle in terms of size and how long they are grown. Button mushrooms are the youngest and smallest, cremini is in the middle, then Portobello mushrooms are the largest and the oldest. I love the earthy umami flavor that the cremini mushrooms have. I use them instead of white mushrooms because they have more flavor and a meaty texture. However, if you prefer, you can use white mushrooms.
How To Make Cream Of Mushroom Chicken
First, cut the mushrooms. Then, chop the shallot and onion.
After that, place your skillet on the stove over medium heat. Then, add the olive oil, onion, shallot, garlic, mushrooms, salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, and oregano. Saute these ingredients.
Next, push the ingredients to the side of the skillet. Then, lightly season both sides of your chicken with salt and pepper and add it to the same skillet. Cook the chicken on both sides until it is fully cooked.
After that, mix all of the ingredients in the pan together and add your favorite cream of mushroom soup and low-sodium chicken broth. Mix the ingredients together and let them simmer. Then, top with fresh flat-leaf parsley and enjoy!
How Long Does Cream Of Mushroom Chicken Last?
This cream of mushroom chicken skillet is best enjoyed when it is warm after making it. We do not recommend freezing it. If you have any leftovers, they will last 2-3 days in the refrigerator.
