  1. Prepare Chicken:
    • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
    • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  2. Cook Mushrooms:
    • In the same skillet, add the butter and reduce the heat to medium. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until they start to soften and brown. Stir occasionally.
  3. Make Garlic Parmesan Sauce:
    • Add the minced garlic to the mushrooms and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
    • Sprinkle the flour over the mushroom mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute to remove the raw flour taste.
    • Gradually pour in the chicken broth, stirring constantly. Add the heavy cream and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.
  4. Combine and Finish:
    • Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until melted and well combined. If you like a bit of heat, add the red pepper flakes.
    • Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and spoon the sauce over them. Cook for another 2-3 minutes to ensure the chicken is heated through and coated with the sauce.
    • Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve the Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken with a side of steamed vegetables, rice, or pasta for a complete meal.

Enjoy this creamy and flavorful dish that’s sure to become a new favorite!
