And that’s where we get to my favorite part, the tips & tricks. Actually, it’s my second favorite; the first is eating what I cook 🙂
So let’s get started, shall we?!
How to make creamy chicken and mushrooms in white sauce – Best Tips & Tricks
1. Which mushrooms to use
I made this creamy garlic mushroom chicken with a mix of King trumpet, Crimini and Enoki mushrooms. They were perfect in this combo because they each had different flavors and texture.
These two are very important, especially texture because some mushrooms are soft and after cooking, they will get even softer. That’s why a mix of soft and more consistent mushrooms is your best option.
But of course, there are other kinds that would go well too. And here are a few good ideas:
Any kind you use, I advise you to mix them for better texture and extra flavors.
Now let’s see how to pick and store them.
2. How to pick and store mushrooms
This tip is not just for this creamy chicken mushroom recipe. It goes for any dish with mushrooms.
When buying mushrooms, make sure they are bright and unblemished. And keep them refrigerated in paper bags, not in plastic, otherwise, they could get moldy.
Now here’s another important thing to remember. Don’t wash them as they will soak up the water and get mushy and flavorless when cooked. Instead, clean them with a mushroom brush or paper towel and if they are really dirty give them a quick rinse in cold water and immediately pat them dry with a paper towel.
And now let’s see which ingredients you can change, add or remove in this easy chicken and mushrooms recipe.
3. Adapt this easy chicken and mushrooms recipe to your taste
I already told you which types of mushrooms you can use, at Tip #1. But what other ingredients can we change in this creamy chicken mushroom recipe?
Well, first of all, let me tell you which ingredients you shouldn’t remove.
Don’t remove the mushrooms, garlic and onion. These bring all the flavor and although you could make it without them, the dish will not come out as tasty.
About the chicken, you can use breast or thighs, or even replace it with turkey.
Come to think about it, you can even replace it with shrimps.
You can use any herbs you want, fresh or dry. I love them fresh because of their intense flavor and I try to use them whenever possible.
Another ingredient that would go perfectly well is cheese. You can sprinkle shredded Parmesan, Gruyere or Cheddar over the whole dish and it will enhance the flavor.
It’s worth mentioning that cheese is allowed in Keto, in case you were worried about that.
Now let’s see what you can serve with this creamy chicken and mushrooms in white sauce.
4. What to serve with creamy chicken mushroom in white sauce
If you want to keep it Keto, then go for a simple chopped or greens salad, or roasted veggies.
But if you’re not dieting, then I would definitely add pasta, more specifically spaghetti al-dente. Oh, I’m drooling already 🙂
