Chicken Strips in Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Chicken Strips in Creamy Mushroom Sauce is a delicious and easy to make dinner recipe. A one-pan meal ready in just  30 minutes!

This chicken in creamy mushroom sauce recipe is a fantastic recipe that is delicious in the winter months, but can be enjoyed at any time. The dish can be made in a variety of ways, but this recipe follows how I best like it. My family absolutely loves this recipe, and it is one of the few ways I can get my toddler to eat mushrooms! 

Even better, the meal only takes 30 minutes and can be cooked in one pan! It makes it so much easier for both cooking and cleaning. I do not know about you, but I like cooking much more than I like cleaning! 

What is Champignon Rahm Geschnetzeltes?

The word Geschnetzeltes (pronounced geh-shnet-sel-tess) is the Swiss/ Austrian word that refers to how the meat is cut, which is in strips. Technically, any kind of meat can be used in this recipe like beef, turkey, or pork, but in this recipe, I use chicken. Champignon is the word for mushroom, which is an essential part of this delicious dish. 

Is it okay to cook with wine?

Although you should definitely not give your kids wine to drink, cooking with wine is perfectly fine! When you cook wine, it burns off the alcohol content making it completely fine for consumption. It adds a depth of flavor to the dish, so I recommend keeping it in, but it is not the end of the world if you skip it. You can deglaze with chicken stock or simply water if you do not feel comfortable using wine. 

What can I serve with it?

Chicken in mushroom sauce goes well with almost any carb. My family and I like it on top of pasta, but it can pair well with rice or mashed potatoes as well. I recommend going with a side that soaks up all the flavors of the mushroom sauce. It will taste so much better that way!

Tips & Alternatives

  • I like to use chicken breast in my recipe, but you can use chicken thighs if you want. You can even choose a different meat if you like, it doesn’t have to be chicken.
  • In my recipe, I use fresh cream as I feel it gives the perfect flavor and texture to the sauce. But if you are on a diet, you can use reduced fat cream or evaporated milk. 
  • You can really use any type of mushroom in this recipe. I prefer Baby Bellas and portabellas, but it is meant to be simple, so use what you have. 


This chicken in mushroom sauce recipe is my go-to meal when I am feeling lazy, but still want to eat something delicious. It is quick to make, flavorful, and goes well with any side. We absolutely love this dish, and I hope you and your family does as well!
