How to Make Chicken in a Creamy Mushroom-Havarti Sauce


  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces, and cook in the hot butter, turning occasionally, for about 7 minutes or until chicken is browned on all sides. Season with dill weed, salt and pepper.
  2. Add onion to skillet, and continue cooking and stirring until onion is clear, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, and cook another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce heat to low, stir in sour cream and cheese, and cook about 2 minutes more or just until cheese melts.
  4. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs and parsley on top, and stir just enough to incorporate the breadcrumbs into the cheesy mixture. Serve immediately.
