Lean chicken pieces, spring onions, freshly sliced mushrooms cooked with grated parmesan cream sauce …..
I use one pan for this dish to get all the flavors and if you go through other recipes, they call for boiled chicken. I think boiled chicken is just too bland, so I marinate my chicken in aromatic spices and stir fry it before putting it into the cream sauce.
- 350 gms pasta (penne, any)
- 300 mL fresh full cream
- 1 cup grated parmesan cheese + some extra to garnish
- 4 tbspns chopped spring onion to garnish
- 100 gms butter
- 1 cup fresh mushrooms
- 1 cup chopped baby spinach
- 1 chicken breast cut into thin slices
- Some salt and pepper to season
- ½ tspn onion powder
- ½ tspn garlic powder
- ½ tspn paprika
-Boil pasta to al dente.
-Marinade chicken for 30 minutes. Melt butter in a pan and stir fry marinated chicken until its cooked but not too dark.
-Take it out and in the same pan, in the same chicken flavoured butter fry mushrooms and take them out with the chicken.
-Now melt some more butter in the same pan and add cream. Let it cook on low heat for 2 minutes and then add parmesan cheese. When the sauce begins to thicken add stir fried chicken, mushrooms and baby spinach. Mix and add boiled pasta.
-Mix & toss.
-Dish out and garnish with some spring onion and parmesan cheese.
