This recipe is so quick, easy and delicious, perfect for the weeknight. So creamy and filled with mushrooms and tender chicken.
Heavy stainless steel skillet
1lb. Spaghetti pasta., fettuccini is ideal, but I had Spaghetti
1cupfinely grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
250gany kind of mushrooms, I used white buttons
1large red onion
2raw chicken breasts, cut in fine slices
2tbspextra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1tbsp1 Tbsp. butter
Bring a large pot filled with very salty water to a boil over high heat.
Add 1 lb. spaghetti pasta, stir once or twice with to prevent sticking. Cook according to package instructions until pasta is al dente.
While pasta is cooking, make the mushrooms. Pour 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil in a large heated skillet. Using a Microplane, finely grate 2 garlic cloves, then cook 250g mushrooms in the oil until they’re tender. Sprinkle salt and pepper at the end, mushrooms love black pepper. Put it on a dish aside.
On the same skillet, pour a few other tablespoons of olive oil, put the red onion until it's soft. Add the chicken to it and let it cook over medium heat until it's tender. Stir it few times to get the golden color on each side.
Add the cooked mushrooms to the chicken and onion. Then add ½ cup heavy cream to the mixture and stir it well.
Gently toss the pasta in the cream mixture. Then add a bit more pasta water. Toss some more, remove from heat. Stir in a spoonful of butter, and some finely grated Parmesan. Toss it again.
Divide pasta among plates. Top with remaining cheese. Drizzle with oil. Add some thyme if you want, et voila.
*The red onion is much sweeter than the white and in our culture, we use it as much as we use the white in our recipes, especially in pasta for a sweetened kick!Make the recipe in a large skillet with high sides or a dutch oven as you'll toss a lot of ingredients into the pasta and you want to make sure everything is mixed well.
