Creamy Fettuccine with Chicken and Mushrooms
Tonight I made pasta for dinner - a fettuccine with chicken and mushrooms in a creamy wine sauce. It was very quick, about a half an hour to make, and scrumptious. The recipe feeds 4 but tastes great for lunch the next day.
Here's the ingredients...
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
2 slices of bacon, cut into pieces
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 pkg of mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup white wine
3/4 cup cream
3 green onions, chopped
1 Tbsp flour or cornstarch
2 Tbsp water
salt and pepper
pkg of fresh pasta
Start by boiling water in a pot and heating oil and butter in a large frypan. Add chicken to the pan and brown lightly, then add bacon and cook til crisp. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook for a few minutes. You probably need to add your pasta to the pot right about now.
Once the mushrooms are starting to brown, add the wine and boil til it is reduced by half. Add the cream and bring it to a boil.
Then add the green onions...
Then mix your flour and water and add to pan to thicken. Stir til it starts to form a thick sauce. Add your drained pasta and toss to coat with the sauce. Serve it with sprinkled Parmesan cheese..Enjoy!
