  • Salt and lemon pepper, (to taste)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 10 oz. mushrooms
  • ½ cup chicken broth, unsalted
  • ½ cup heavy cream, (or half-and-half + 1 tablespoon flour for lighter version)

When the pan is hot, add sliced chicken, season it with salt and lemon pepper right in the pan, and cook for about 4 minutes on each side until chicken slices are slightly browned.

  3. Add chicken broth and heavy cream and reduce the sauce for a couple of minutes, until slightly thickened.
  4. Next, add parmesan cheese into the pan. Stir until cheese is incorporated with the sauce. Taste and season with more salt and pepper.
