Baked One Pot Chicken and Mushrooms
This just happens to be one of the best recipes in the fantastical series of one pot chicken dishes I have cooked lately. I love mushroom sauce….so much. This chicken makes it’s own amazing Mushroom Sauce all in the one pot.
One pot dinners have become my speciality lately because once you construct them they just take care of themselves until the oven timer goes off. Lets also talk about the fact that if there are leftovers they can miraculously become another meal too. Pick off all the little leftover pieces of chicken, wrap them in a taco and bingo you have a great snack.
One Pot Chicken Simple. No Need to add extras
I haven’t used any butter in this recipe because I think the cream adds enough of a luxury feel to the sauce. The most important element here is the dijon mustard it seasons the sauce beautifully and adds its own creaminess.
My only tip is when adding the mushrooms you should add a little extra Olive Oil as mushrooms tend to need a little extra help when you are cooking them. They soak up a bit of oil before they soften. Swiss Brown mushrooms have more flavour than most mushrooms, if you can get a hold of them. You can see in the video I have added a few of them whole because it is nice to get a whole mushroom on your plate.
OMG you are going to love this.
- 1.5 kg Chicken or close
- 60 ml olive oil
- 1 whole onion diced
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 Tablespoons Thyme chopped
- 500 gram mushrooms sliced (button or swiss brown mushrooms)
- 3 tablespoons dijon mustard

- 250 ml cream or non dairy cream
- 40 ml lemon Juice or 1/2 a lemon

make sure you use a deep oven pot as this stops the sauce from evporating quickly and surrounds the chicken with more steam
