Lemon Butter Chicken with Spinach and Mushrooms

Shako mako habibis?! I’m so excited to share with you this simple and delicious chicken recipe which is so good, I can almost promise you that there won’t be any leftovers to eat tomorrow.

Here’s what you need:


  • 4 – 5 boneless chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 5 chopped cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 bag of spinach
  • 1 cup of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 lemon
  • A handful of Parmesan cheese
  • Paprika, kosher salt, and pepper


Step 1

Coat the chicken evenly with Paprika, kosher salt, and pepper.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a skillet and add in the chicken thighs. Give each side about 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown, then flip to the other side. Once both sides are nice and crispy, take the chicken out and let it rest on a plate.

Step 3

Now in your pan, you should have little bits of chicken skin and spices all mixed in with the butter. This is where the magic happens!

Step 4

Add garlic and let it saute for just a few seconds to build flavor. Then, add the chicken broth, heavy milk, and Parmesan cheese and stir everything together. The sauce is now complete!

Step 5

Add the spinach, mushrooms, and squeeze the lemon juice in. Lower the heat and wait until you have a gentile simmer.

Step 6

Add the chicken back in (skin side up!) and put the skillet in a 400 F pre-heated ovenĀ  for 20 minutes. Once that’s done, turn the over to broil and let the chicken get nice, brown, and crispy for just 5 minutes.

BAM! You’re all set, habibi. When you serve this dish, put the chicken in a plate, then pour the sauce over it. You can eat it as it is, or with a slice of your favorite bread.
