Ingredients

1 lb. regular or whole-wheat linguine
3 boneless chicken breasts
salt & pepper
8 oz. button mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
5 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 cup white vermouth
1 cup chicken broth
1 tsp. beef soup base
¼ cup evaporated milk
4 tbsp. freshly minced parsley
1 roma tomato, seeded and diced
basil leaves (optional)
crumbled feta (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brush your chicken with a little olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through. Cover with foil and set aside to rest.
2
Fill a large pan with water. Add a teaspoon of olive oil and a ½ teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente.
3
In the meantime, heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking.
4
Add mushrooms and garlic; stir until the edges of the mushrooms turn a nice brown color.
5
Add flour and stir for two minutes; stir in the vermouth, chicken stock and beef base.
6
When the mixture has reduced by half, add the cream.
7
Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Add to the sauce. Lower the heat to medium-low and continue to cook for an additional about 5 to 6 minutes.
8
Add fresh diced tomatoes and fresh basil leaves for garnish. A sprinkling of crumbled Feta is good, too.
