How to Make Creamy Chicken & Mushroom Pasta

Step-by-Step

  • 1Dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water. Cook spaghetti according to directions and drain. Set aside.
  • 2In deep skillet, heat olive oil and butter over high heat. Sear chicken tenders until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes per side.
  • 3Remove chicken to a plate and set aside. When cool tear chicken into bite size pieces and set aside.
  • 4Over 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.
  • 5While stirring constantly gradually add the chicken broth, making sure all lumps are removed. Add milk until gravy reaches a smooth, thin consistency.
  • 6Reduce 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.
  • 7If sauce starts to get too thick add a little more milk. Simmer another 5 minutes and add cheese and stir until completely melted.
  • 8Taste for seasoning and add as needed. Ladle sauce over spaghetti and sprinkle with parsley. Serve along with garlic french bread.

    Enjoy!
