Now that we have all of our ingredients ready, let’s start cooking. This mushroom wine sauced chicken recipe is easy to make and takes only 25 minutes. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it.


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut in half)
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon butter (divided)
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Step 1: Prep the Chicken

Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides. Coat the chicken in all-purpose flour.

Step 2: Sauté the Chicken

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and half of the butter. When the butter is melted, add the chicken and cook for about 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Once done, transfer the chicken to a plate.

Step 3: Cook the Mushrooms and Garlic

In the same skillet, add the remaining butter and sliced mushrooms. Saute for about 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add minced garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds or until fragrant.

Step 4: Make Wine Sauce

Pour in white wine and scrape up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Let it cook for a minute until all alcohol burns off. Then add chicken broth and Dijon mustard. Allow it to simmer for about five minutes or until thickened.

Step 5: Combine Sauce with Chicken

Add back the cooked chicken breasts into the mushroom wine sauce skillet. Cover each breast with the sauce and mushrooms, then simmer everything together for 2-3 minutes.

Now the mushroom wine sauced chicken is ready to serve. Enjoy it with your choice of side dish for a complete meal.

If you want to switch up this Mushroom Wine Sauced Chicken Recipe, there are plenty of ways to do it! Here are a few substitution and variation options:

1. Chicken Thighs: Swap the boneless skinless chicken breasts for chicken thighs. They will take a bit longer to cook, but they are more flavorful and tender.

2. Red Wine: If you’re not a fan of white wine, try using red wine instead. Pinot Noir is a good option for this recipe.

3. Creamy Mushroom Sauce: For an even creamier sauce, mix in a can of mushroom soup with the wine sauce ingredients.

4. Grilled Chicken Breasts: If you prefer grilled chicken over skillet chicken, marinate your chicken in olive oil, salt, and pepper before grilling it.

5. Mushroom Cream Sauce: To make the sauce creamier, add heavy cream or sour cream to the pan after sautéing the mushrooms and garlic.

6. Chicken Tenders: Instead of using whole chicken breasts or thighs, cut chicken tenders into bite-sized pieces and coat them in the flour mixture before sautéing.

7. Roast Chicken: If you don’t want to sauté your chicken on the stovetop, roast it in the oven instead with the mushrooms and wine sauce ingredients.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

This recipe can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. To reheat, simply place the chicken and mushroom wine sauce in a skillet over low heat, stirring occasionally until heated through.

For best results, I suggest making this recipe fresh, but it can be prepared the night before and left to marinate in the fridge. The chicken will absorb all of those delicious flavors from the wine sauce, making it even more tender and flavorful.

If you want to make this dish even easier to prepare, you can also cut the boneless skinless chicken breasts into smaller pieces or use chicken tenders. This will allow for faster cooking and better portion control.

Additionally, if you have any leftover cooked chicken and mushroom wine sauce, you can use it as a topping over some grilled vegetables or on top of rice for an easy weeknight meal. The possibilities are endless!

When reheating the sauce and chicken, be sure to add a splash of water or white wine before heating it up to keep it from drying out. Don’t microwave it though; since this dish is best enjoyed hot from the stove, I suggest reheating it on the stovetop.

Overall, while this dish tastes best fresh, it’s still possible to enjoy extras throughout the week with some careful storage and reheating techniques.

Tips for Perfect Results

Here are a few tips to ensure that your Mushroom Wine Sauced Chicken Recipe is perfect and delicious every time you make it.

First, use boneless skinless chicken breasts for this recipe. The boneless cut will cook faster and more evenly than with chicken thighs or skin-on bone-in breasts. Plus, the lack of skin and bones makes it easier to eat and serve.

Next, be sure to season the chicken with salt and pepper before cooking. This is a simple step but it makes a big difference in the flavor of the dish.

When sautéing the mushrooms and garlic, be careful not to overcrowd the pan. Overcrowding can cause the mushrooms to steam instead of brown, which will alter their texture and flavor.

For a creamier sauce, you can add additional butter or heavy cream to the sauce after adding the wine.

Finally, match your wine pairing with a Pinot Noir or dry Riesling if you want to go for red wines or creamy white wine if you prefer whites. These wines compliment this dish perfectly.

Follow these tips and you are sure to impress everyone with your Mushroom Wine Sauced Chicken Recipe.


As you prepare to cook this delicious Mushroom Wine Sauced Chicken Recipe, you may have some lingering questions. In this section, we will provide answers to common FAQs that may arise as you perfect this recipe in your own kitchen. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions and their corresponding answers.

What wine is best for cooking mushroom sauce?

When it comes to pairing wine with dishes, don’t be afraid to reach for a fruity red. Consider trying a Pinot Noir from the New World, Merlot, or a young Tempranillo to complement your dish. For a lighter dish, a dry Riesling can do the trick. However, if soy sauce is in the mix, you’ll want to opt for a semi-dry Riesling instead.

What wine goes with chicken and mushroom?

As a sommelier, my expertise extends to a variety of wines, ranging from the delightful white wine produced in the wine region of Niagara Peninsula in Canada to the bold and robust red wines of Fronsac and Bordeaux, France. Some of the remarkable red wines from Bordeaux that I’ve tasted include Canon, Castillon, Graves, Haut Médoc, Margaux, and Médoc. Each wine carries a unique taste and story, offering an unforgettable wine-tasting experience.

What wine is best to cook with chicken?

When it comes to pairing wine with different types of meat, there are some general guidelines that are worth following. For example, it is often suggested that white meats like chicken and turkey breast go best with white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. On the other hand, dark meats like duck and various game meats tend to pair better with medium-bodied red wines like Pinot Noir or Zinfandel.

What does cooking wine do to chicken?

When it comes to cooking meat, poultry or seafood, a wine-based marinade can offer a dual benefit of tenderizing the outer layer and adding flavor. Along with that, it also helps in keeping the food moist as it cooks.

What is chicken with mushroom sauce in French?

In France, during autumn, chefs rely on a classic dish known as “Poulet à la forestière” which features succulent chicken bathed in a creamy mushroom sauce.
