I love one skillet recipes, they are usually very very tasty, easy, simple and you don’t have to wash up half of your kitchen after cooking. This recipe is exactly like this, super easy, simple and extremely delicious.

The combination of spinach, mushroom, cherry tomatoes all in a creamy and cheesy mixture makes an awesome sauce, plus the tender chicken breast slices soaked in this yummy sauce are just perfect. This is definitely not a boring chicken dinner recipe, you’ll want to make this recipe again ad again.

First rub the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika, then sear them in a large skillet. When the meat is cooked, remove them from the skillet and set aside. After that prepare the creamy spinach, mushroom and cherry tomato sauce, by simmering the veggies than pouring the cream on top of them. Pretty simple, isn’t it?

This rich cheesy creamy tomato, mushroom and spinach sauce doesn’t need any thickening, just some fresh season it with a pinch of salt and add a little oregano before removing it form heat.

I served this amazing creamy chicken over steamed vegetables and sweet potato fries. Since my first attempt I’ve made this recipe at least 3 times in the last couple of weeks, so yeah I can honestly say that we are in love with this chicken dinner. And the sauce is devine! I can’t get enough of it. Plus, this creamy chicken is super good on the next day too.

Creamy spinach mushroom chicken is one the best weeknight dinner recipe you can prepare in 30 minutes. We really really love this one skillet chicken, I hope you will too!
