How to Make Creamy Chicken & Mushroom Pasta

Step-by-Step

  1. Dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water. Cook spaghetti according to directions and drain. Set aside.
  2. In deep skillet, heat olive oil and butter over high heat. Sear chicken tenders until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes per side.
  3. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside. When cool tear chicken into bite size pieces and set aside.
  4. Over medium heat add flour to pan drippings and make a blonde roux. Cook for about 5 minutes. If you're using fresh onion add that to roux and cook for another 3-4 minutes but don't brown the roux.
  5. While stirring constantly gradually add the chicken broth, making sure all lumps are removed. Add milk until gravy reaches a smooth, thin consistency.
  6. Reduce heat to low, add sherry, chicken, green onions, dried minced onion (if using), granulated onion & garlic, white pepper and mushrooms. Let simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. If sauce starts to get too thick add a little more milk. Simmer another 5 minutes and add cheese and stir until completely melted.
  8. Taste for seasoning and add as needed. Ladle sauce over spaghetti and sprinkle with parsley. Serve along with garlic french bread.

    Enjoy!
