This Creamy Coconut Mushroom Chicken is smothered in a creamy dairy-free golden sauce that is as delicious as it looks and ready in 10 minutes!
This is a delicious dinner recipe that you can prepare in about 10 minutes! Especially on those busy nights when you rather not make that dreaded phone call again to the take-out gods. Although there is definitely a time and place for delicious take-out food! All it takes is one pan, a few simple ingredients and voilà – dinner is served!
This easy chicken dinner is made with sautėed mushrooms, fresh spinach, smothered in coconut milk and perfectly seasoned with garlic powder, chilli flakes for a little heat and turmeric powder which adds a beautiful golden hue to this dish. These are simple pantry/refrigerator staples, that makes it to so easy to cook a simple healthy meal that’s bursting with flavour.
Like with most of my recipes, you can easily interchange the ingredients to suit your needs or use up what you have on hand. Swap the chicken for turkey breast, or make it a meatless Monday meal! For vegetarian options tofu or more mushrooms like Shiitake, portobello and king oyster works well. You can also cut down on prep time by buying pre-cut chicken strips and pre-sliced mushrooms. And since we’re only using one pan to cook all this deliciousness, even cleaning up will be a breeze.
I love serving this creamy dish on a bed of basmati rice or with fresh nan. Topped this dish with fresh cilantro or parsley for a beautiful and healthy garnish. If you have any leftovers, pack it for lunch in one of these Bento Boxes and you’ll be the envy of all your co-workers.

This recipe was ok for me. Had to keep adding more spices because it wasn’t flavorful enough. Doubled the recipe for my family of 4. I think fresh garlic cooking with the mushrooms would have offered better flavor. Also I had to cook in batches and could not cook the chicken with the mushrooms because there wasn’t enough space. I love you Nikole! This just wasn’t for me. I’ll have to try another recipe next time!
Made this last night and it was DELICIOUS! Definitely adding this to the meal plan rotations. I didn’t have turmeric on hand so I substituted with curry and it was very good. Thank you for sharing <3
So happy that you enjoyed it! Thanks for letting me know.
Must try! I liked it tons!Use milk instead of coconut milk, as it gets too heavy.
Loved this recipe!!! Super easy and full of flavour. Thank you!
