Chicken & Mushroom in Creamy Cheese Herb Sauce

January 27, 2008 at 7:43 pm 2 comments

My hubs isn’t as big of a shrimp fan as me so I decided to make this dish again but substitute the shrimp with chicken to appease his suggestion. The things we do for the people we love… HRRRUUUMPH!


(Recipe from allrecipes.com | photos from me!)

Makes 4 servings

INGREDIENTS

1 (8 ounce) package linguini pasta (I used thin spaghetti)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup butter
2 cloves garlic, minced (I used 3 cloves)
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
2/3 cup boiling water
2 boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked and sliced in strips

INSTRUCTIONS

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguini, and cook until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Transfer to a plate. (I covered the bowl with foil to keep the mushrooms warm)

In the same pan, melt 1/2 cup butter with the minced garlic. Stir in the cream cheese, breaking it up with a spoon as it melts. Stir in the parsley and basil. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Mix in boiling water until sauce is smooth. Stir in cooked shrimp and mushrooms, and heat through. Toss linguini with shrimp sauce, and serve. (I garnished with chopped parsley)

ENJOY! :)

    Hey! I am totally making this dish sometime this week. I don’t eat shrimp so I’m glad you tried it with chicken. I’m nervous about alterations on recipes sometimes.
