Creamy Chicken Mushroom Penne


Chicken and mushroom combined with creamy sauce… that’s quick but delicious recipe! I’m sure you’ll love it.

How to make this delicious chicken mushroom pasta?

Here is a quick step-to-step guide:

  • boil penne pasta
  • fry onion and mushrooms with butter
  • fry diced chicken breast with herbs
  • pour broth and add fresh parsley
  • pour double cream and simmer
  • stir in pasta, chicken and mozarella cheese

I like to use penne pasta for creamy sauces, but you can use any pasta you like. Similarly with mushrooms – you can use any variety you like. If you prefer meaty mushroom flavour you can go for chestnut variety. But most importantly, use only fresh parsley as dried one won’t be as flavourful.
