Creamy chicken and mushrooms go so well together. Add some fresh herbs and made in just one pan and you’ve got yourself and quick and easy keto meal for any busy weeknight made in 30 minutes.

Sometimes it can can boring if you constantly make the same recipes with chicken over and over again. So trying some new ideas will chicken will keep your family from complaining.
One Pan Chicken Casserole
One pan meals are the absolute best because you have less to clean up! Using a cast iron skillet will also, in my opinion, yield the tastiest results. A cast iron skillet sears the chicken so well and browns the mushrooms perfectly. Then those little crispy bits made when searing the chicken will be scraped up nicely with the chicken stock to deglaze the pan. You can use cast iron skillets for desserts too like my Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Pie!
