Cooking chicken with cream mushrooms:

Step 1: Prepare the filet.

Wash the fillet and be sure to wipe it well with disposable paper towels. Thanks to this, the pieces will turn out to be more fried on the outside and juicy on the inside, as well as better absorb spices. Cut the washed and dried chicken into small pieces, as they say, into one bite.

Step 2: Prepare the other ingredients.

Put the mushrooms in a colander, sorting them out along the way and cutting off the roots and darkening. Rinse the mushrooms with warm running water and fix them on the weight for a while to allow excess moisture to drain. Then cut the mushrooms into thick slices or large pieces.
Peel the onion properly, cut off the ends and chop it into small cubes.
Also remove the cloves of garlic from the husks and finely chop. You can use a grater or a special press.
Rinse parsley thoroughly under a stream of warm, almost hot, water, shake. Cut the thick stems, as they are too stiff and not suitable for food. And cut the remaining leaves into small pieces.

Step 3: Fry the onion.

Heat the pan, and with it the vegetable oil, and pour onion slices on it. Sauté the ingredient until golden, stirring constantly to avoid burning. It usually takes 3-4 minutes.

Step 4: Fry the fillet.

In the same pan in which you fried onions without draining oil, you can fry pieces of chicken, or you can take new dishes. Also, stirring and turning the meat all the time, cook it for 3-4 minutes until a delicious crust appears on all sides.

Step 5: Fry the mushrooms.

And the last ingredient is sauteing champignon mushrooms. Just like the others, you need to cook them for about 3 minutes, that is, until half-ready.

Step 6: Cook the cream of chicken with mushrooms.

Now combine the mushrooms, chicken and onions in one pan, add salt and black pepper to taste, mix. Meanwhile, lightly warm the cream in a saucepan before adding them to the dish. Place the pan over medium heat and pour warm cream into a thin stream and sprinkle flour. Stir, pepper and salt if necessary, add finely chopped greens with garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes. After the specified time, put the butter in the dish, remove the pan from the heat and, having covered with a lid, let stand still 5-7 minutes. That's all done! You can start serving.

Step 7: Serve the chicken with cream mushrooms.

Cream of chicken with mushrooms in cream is served hot, immediately after cooking. Of course, if necessary, you can reheat it, but the taste of the dish from this may lose a little. So it is better to enjoy the taste of delicate dietary meat with aromatic mushrooms immediately, supplementing it, perhaps, with a side dish of boiled pasta or rice. No sauce, of course, is needed, just pour everything before serving with the liquid that has accumulated at the bottom of the pan.
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- Instead of cream, you can use milk or sour cream. But in that case, if you choose sour cream, then you do not need to add flour.

- At will, you can use not fresh mushrooms, but frozen and even canned ones.

- It also turns out very tasty if you add dill or parsley, onion and garlic, in addition to greens.

- A little allspice will add flavor to the dish, but be sure to remove it after cooking.
