video instructions available below 👇 


– 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
– 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
– 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 cup chicken broth
– 1 cup heavy cream
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


1. **Prep the ingredients:** Begin by thinly slicing the chicken breasts, slicing the mushrooms, and trimming the asparagus into bite-sized pieces. Mince the garlic and chop the fresh parsley for garnish.

2. **Sauté the chicken:** Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced chicken breasts to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

3. **Cook the mushrooms and asparagus:** In the same skillet, add a bit more olive oil if needed. Add the sliced mushrooms and asparagus pieces to the skillet. Sauté until the mushrooms are tender and the asparagus is crisp-tender, about 5-6 minutes.

4. **Add the garlic:** Stir in the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant, being careful not to burn the garlic.

5. **Prepare the creamy sauce:** Pour the chicken broth into the skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan for extra flavor. Allow the broth to simmer for a few minutes to reduce slightly.

6. **Add the heavy cream:** Once the broth has reduced, pour in the heavy cream, stirring gently to combine all the ingredients. Allow the sauce to simmer for another 2-3 minutes until it thickens slightly.

7. **Return the chicken:** Return the cooked chicken to the skillet, nestling it into the creamy mushroom and asparagus mixture. Let the chicken heat through in the sauce for a couple of minutes.

8. **Garnish and serve:** Garnish the creamy chicken mushroom asparagus skillet with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of color and added freshness. Serve hot and enjoy this comforting and flavorful meal!
