Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 tbsp. salted butter
  • 1 lb. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 lb. fettuccine
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced


Recipe Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until brown on all sides. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, melt 2 tbsp. butter. Add sliced mushrooms and cook for 10-12 minutes or until soft and caramelized.
  3. In a large pot, cook fettucine pasta until al dente. Reserve a cup of cooking water before draining. This comes in handy for the sauce.
  4. Once mushrooms are cooked, add garlic, and cook 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Add the cream, butter, and ground white pepper for the sauce and stir until butter is melted and combined. Cook over medium heat for 5-8 minutes, until sauce begins to thicken.
  6. Add cheese and cook until melted, stirring to combine.
  7. Add in cooked pasta, chicken, and mushrooms and toss gently until pasta is coated. You can add a little bit of pasta water if sauce is too thick.
  8. Top with additional Shredded Parmesan, serve, and enjoy!
