Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut carrot into 1/4-inch coins. Thinly slice mushrooms. Quarter potatoes.
Add carrots and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until tender-crisp, 16-20 min.
Meanwhile, add potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered, until fork-tender, 10-12 min. Drain and return potatoes to the same pot, off heat. Roughly mash sour cream and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) into potatoes until creamy. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry until chicken is cooked through, 4-5 min per side.** Transfer chicken to a plate, then cover with foil to keep warm.
Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, until mushrooms soften, 2-4 min. Sprinkle Cream Sauce Spice Blend over mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, until coated, 1 min. Stir in broth concentrate and 3/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl). Bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 1-2 min. Stir in 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl).
Add chicken back to the pan. Spoon mushroom sauce over chicken, then sprinkle cheese over top. Cover and cook until cheese melts, 1-2 min. Divide chicken, carrots and mashed potatoes between plates. Spoon remaining mushroom sauce in the pan over chicken and mashed potatoes.
