Step-By-Step

3Add chicken back to the skillet with the mushrooms and simmer about 20 minutes till chicken is done

4Cook fettuccini according to the package directions on the box then drain the pasta and set aside for a minute

5In the pasta pan combine the 1/2 cup of butter and next six ingredients and heat until hot, not boiling, on stove

6Stir in the drained pasta and toss
