INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 12 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 8 oz Penne pasta
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Season chicken with salt, freshly ground black pepper and garlic powder. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for about 5 minutes per side, or until no longer pink in center. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add chopped onion to the skillet, and cook for a couple of minutes until translucent, stirring occasionally. Add minced garlic, and cook, while stirring for 30 seconds. Transfer to the plate with chicken.
  • Add sliced mushrooms and stir. Season mushrooms with salt and pepper. Let cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. When mushrooms are tender and most juices have evaporated, transfer them to the plate with chicken.
  • Add Penne pasta to the skillet and 4 cups water. Cook according to package instructions for about 10 minutes. 
  • When pasta is cooked, add whipping cream, white wine and continue cooking for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally or until sauce reduces a bit and thickens.
  • Add chicken, onions, and mushrooms back to the skillet, and fresh baby spinach. Stir everything. Serve warm and sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top.
