Traeger White Wine Chicken and Mushrooms

My Traeger White Wine Chicken and Mushrooms can be cooked on the stovetop, or on your wood-pellet grill in a cast iron pan. Pick your pleasure! I didn’t want to heat up my kitchen and also wanted to enjoy the nice weather outside while we still have it, so I chose the latter.

Traeger White Wine Chicken and Mushrooms

This chicken dish is one of those meals that you’d serve to your in-laws the first time you make them dinner. I’d make this for an anniversary dinner, for someone special I hadn’t seen for a really long time, or for someone I wanted to show off for a little bit.

It is fancy-tasting, but full of simple ingredients with a straight-forward cooking technique that anyone can follow. You can make this on your Traeger or you can make this on the stove top, either way, it is going to be amazing.

How to make Chicken and Mushrooms on the Traeger

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.

With a little prep, this gets put together pretty quickly. You’ll want to make sure to have everything ready to go because things get crazy in the middle of it!

1

Preheat

Fire up your Traeger to 400°F. Put the cast iron skillet inside while it preheats. Add some high-temp oil to the pan.

2

Prep

Start by slicing some onions and mushrooms, and setting them aside.

Next, you’ll want to cut your chicken breasts in half so they are half of their normal thickness. Season them well with some salt and pepper and a sprinkle of onion powder before dredging the chicken breasts in the seasoned flour.

This flour not only helps the chicken to brown, but it also helps thicken the sauce during the end as well. Don’t skip it, if you can help it!

3

Cook

Put the dredged breasts into the hot cast iron pan. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned. Flip and brown the other side.

After you brown both sides of the chicken, remove it from the pan but leave all of those awesome bits and pieces on the bottom of the pan and throw in your butter and your onions and mushrooms.

Stir, shut the lid, and let cook for 10 minutes. Stir, and cook another 5 minutes.

Add back in your chicken to the pan along with some chicken stock and the white wine. Let that cook down for about 20 more minutes.

4

Serve

I like to serve this with Browned Butter Mizithra Pasta, and some Grilled Asparagus.

Tips For Making Chicken in White Wine Sauce

  • Don’t mess with the chicken while it’s browning! It’ll never get brown if you do. Okay, it’ll get brown eventually but it’ll take way longer and your chicken will not retain as much moisture if you have to cook it longer.
  • Well-seasoned cast iron is your friend for this one! You don’t want it to stick, and the cast iron heats so evenly it works so well for dishes like this.

Traeger White Wine Chicken and Mushrooms FAQ

What Kind Of Wine Works Best For White Wine Chicken?

You can use almost any kind of white wine in this dish. My personal favorite is Pinot Gris, but feel free to experiment! I’d steer clear of anything super sweet. A super oaky chardonnay might just be perfect, especially if you go with the Traeger option and cook it on your grill

What’s the best way to store & reheat leftovers?

Keep these in an airtight storage container, glass or plastic, in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave until it is steamy.

What if you don’t want to use wine?

Wine is pretty integral to this sauce. You can substitute in more chicken stock if you’d like, but it’ll change the flavor significantly. Still good, but much different. Try subbing in a bit of apple juice and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar sometime and see what you think.

Traeger White Wine Chicken and Mushrooms is a fancy dinner that is more than up for any company you can throw at it.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Active Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour

Ingredients

Chicken:

  • 4 large chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ cup canola oil

Dredge:

  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme

Sauce:

  • 4 cups sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 ½ cups chicken stock
  • 1 ½ cups dry white wine
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, divided

Garnish:

  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onions

Instructions

  1. Trim your chicken and slice in half so they are half the thickness that they usually are. You’ll be quartering the breasts so you have four thin slices of chicken from each one.
  2. Season each piece of chicken evenly with the salt, pepper, and onion powder.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the dredge ingredients and then lightly dredge each piece of chicken and set aside.
  4. Preheat your grill to 400°F. In a large well-seasoned cast-iron or non-stick skillet, put the oil inside and place into the grill while it is preheating.
  5. Once the grill and pan are hot, brown the chicken pieces for 5-7 minutes per side, or until the chicken is golden brown. Once it is golden brown on both sides, remove from the skillet and set aside.
  6. In the same skillet, place 3 tablespoons of butter and let it melt with the lid closed. Place the sliced onions and mushrooms into the pan, close, and let cook for 4-5 minutes before stirring.
  7. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes before returning the chicken to the pan.
  8. Add in the broth, the wine, the last 3 tablespoons of butter, and cover and let cook for 20 minutes.
  9. Sprinkle with the chopped green onions and serve immediately with mashed potatoes or buttered noodles and a green salad.

Hi Nicole,

Bought a Traeger today, found your website today. I'm impressed with the recipes I'm seeing here, and can't wait to try several of them.

I'm seeing canola oil noted a fair bit - we're an avocado oil household - do you think that would work in place of canola in your recipes?

Thanks for this helpful resource!

Absolutely! I actually prefer avocado oil as well, and use it quite a bit in my cooking! So glad you like it here, and welcome to the Traeger club. :D

What a delicious chicken recipe! I absolutely love cooking with white wine. When I'm out shopping for ingredients, I look forward to picking up a bottle of Pinot Gris by Canoe Ridge Vineyard too. My husband and I love finding and trying new wines and adding our favorite bottles to our collection.
