How to Make One Pot Creamy Chicken Mushroom Pasta
Since I’m all about saving time where I can so I can spend it how I want, I try to limit the number of dishes I dirty as I prep dinner. This creamy chicken mushroom pasta is no different. All you need is a large skillet and a wooden spoon.
Step 1 – Brown the Chicken
Heat some olive oil in your skillet and then brown the chicken on both sides.
Step 2 – Sauté the Mushrooms
Next, add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and sauté them for 2-3 minutes.
Step 3 – Add Remaining Ingredients
Finally, you’ll add the remaining ingredients to the skillet. Pour in the Seeds of Change® Mushroom Simmer Sauce.
Then the chicken broth, milk, whole wheat pasta and seasoning.
Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Step 4 – Prepare to Serve
Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the fresh spinach.
Spoon portions onto individual plates. Then, top with shaved parmesan (you can use grated parmesan instead, but I think the shaved cheese looks prettier).
