Pasta With Chicken & Mushrooms


I made this dish for my family the other night for Sunday dinner and it was delicious.  Easy to prepare too with not a lot of ingredients.

Pasta With Chicken & Mushrooms

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast or thighs, diced
8oz. sliced mushrooms
1 Tbs olive oil
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried parsley
8 oz. light cream cheese, cubed
2 cups milk
1 pound pasta, cooked and drained
Grated parmesan

In a large skillet heat oil.  Cook chicken and mushrooms.  Once chicken has cooked through and mushrooms are soft add garlic, basil and pasta.  Stir well.  Add cream cheese and stir until melted into chicken mixture.  Continue to stir and add milk.  Allow to come to a bubble.  Remove from heat.  Add pasta and toss to combine.  Serve and sprinkle with parmesan.

I served this with a side of steamed broccoli.  A nice salad would go well too.  Leftovers reheat nicely with a splash of milk to loosen it up a bit.  Definitely one I'll be making again.
