I LOVE mushrooms, but my family does not. Can anyone else relate? Just to be nice I usually avoid dinner recipes with mushrooms, but every now and then I just get a craving and decide to make something with them anyway … thinking they can just pick them out if it’s really that much of a problem. It’s certainly not hard to do if they aren’t cut too small.

But when I recently made this Chicken & Wild Mushroom Skillet, I decided that while they could pick them out, I certainly wouldn’t suggest it or even say a word about the dreaded mushrooms that suddenly appeared in our dinner. And guess what happened? (I bet you can guess where I am going with this, haha.) No one said a word, me included, and just ate their entire serving as is! I couldn’t believe it. Maybe it was the sauce, maybe it was because they were “wild” mushrooms instead of standard, maybe it was the alignment of the stars – who knows, but I certainly didn’t start asking any questions. I hope your family enjoys this one as much as mine did!

Oh, and I included the polenta recipe below that was fabulous paired with this (as pictured). Just add a simple green salad on the side, and your healthy dinner is done!

  1. For the polenta, what could you substitute the milk with if we are allergic? Also the cream in the chicken recipe?

    1. Hi, we haven’t tried any substitutes, but it looks like one reader used coconut cream instead. – Nicole

    In just 40 minutes I had prepared this dish from start to finish, including the polenta and some oven-roasted asparagus. Not bad! My 3 and 6 year old boys gobbled it up, and want to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. :-) (Husband missed out while traveling for work!) Was very tasty and easy. I love this blog’s recipes!

    So good!! Thank you for this recipe; my husband does not like mushrooms so I always avoid recipes that include them, but decided to try this one because of your comments that your family also does not like them. Hubby approved! I dont like thyme so I’ll use less of that next time, and did not have white wine on hand so substituted with rice wine vinegar. Also, I had no idea polenta was so easy, will be making that more often!!

  4. Can I use condensed milk in place of cream? I can’t buy milk or cream because it always ends up going bad before I can figure out a way to use it all. Or maybe there’s another recipe you can recommend that will use up the rest of the cream?


  5. I can’t wait try this! 3 of us like mushrooms and two of us don’t. We actually only give mushrooms to the mushroom eaters. My husband can dectect any stray mushroom no matter how small. So my philosophy is why waste perfectly good mushrooms, on people who won’t eat them anyway.

  6. Do a search for polenta in the search box top right corner of her page. The scallops recipe has a polenta recipe.

  7. This looks delicious but my household is dairy free due to allergies. What would you suggest as a sub for the heavy cream? Thanks!

  8. This looks really good, however, what else do you suggest in place of mushrooms? My husband will FOR SURE know there’s mushrooms LOL!

    Thank you!
