Creamy Herb-Mushroom Sauce

Creamy Herb Mushroom Sauce | SpoonfulOfButter.com

I have always loved the combination of fresh mushrooms, rosemary, and thyme whether it may be in soups, stews, a pasta dish or a even a simple side dish of sauted vegetables. The addition of butter and cream gives a velvety texture and, of course, makes the sauce rich and creamy!

The great part about this creamy herb-mushroom sauce is it’s versatility. I have used this sauce as a base to make a creamy pesto pasta sauce. I’ve poured this over simple grilled chicken thigh fillets and even burger steaks! I sometimes put this over my rice, haha. It is THAT TASTY!

NOTE: Chicken bouillon powder can be bought in most grocery stores. You can also use Better than Bouillon Chicken Base or this homestyle chicken stock.
