Creamy Chicken Pasta
With this wonderful creamy chicken mushroom recipe you can’t go wrong serving this dish with rice or pasta. Mashed potatoes also taste great and will work in a pinch.
The sauce goes beautifully with everything I have tried.
Honestly, I usually prepare this quick and easy dish with pasta because I can’t help myself. I just love this creamy chicken recipe with pasta.
However, when my husband cooks this versatile creamy chicken and mushroom dish he prefers it with rice so that is what he makes.
Overall though, I love the way this gravy tastes, and the chicken too of course, all over both pasta, rice or mashed potatoes. I’m sure you’ll find your favorite side dish to serve it with too.
It’s just nice to know when a dish works with so many things. Just in case.
Ultimately the most important issue is the gravy and this wonderful mushroom gravy tastes amazing on just about anything, especially chicken.
My husband always says that you can’t say it tastes great on everything because it won’t work on ice cream.
Every time he says that I think how do you know? Have you tried it? Might not be as bad as you think? Then I give my head a shake and stop wasting time considering silly things!
Creamy Crockpot Chicken
One of my closest friends calls this weeknight dinner winner, her favorite creamy chicken with mushroom recipe, cheap and cheerful! That’s her favorite expression!
It is true though. Cheap and cheerful is always the way to go whenever possible. My husband always loves to hear me say that!
I find chicken thighs go on sale regularly and I always stock up my freezer.
The rest of the ingredients are fairly inexpensive too, all things considered, so in our minds this meal is perfection.
All of the popular side dishes are staples you likely already have in your pantry.
Between the pasta, rice or mashed potatoes, you can’t do better than that as a filling, hearty side dish to complete this excellent dinner idea.
Creamy Chicken Mushroom Recipe
If you’re a mushroom fan than this easy creamy chicken pasta recipe is right up your alley and I urge you to try it.
Not only can you use your favorite mushroom variety, you can also use a mixture of different mushrooms to make your creamy mushroom sauce perfect for you and your family.
I have bought and used all kinds of mushrooms to make this terrific mushroom sauce. I urge you t try it.
Take a chance while at your local market and grab a mixed container or a couple different varieties of mushrooms.
Heck, if that’s too much do what I did at first and buy your regular white mushrooms and a small package of another variety. Go home and use them both.
Just to see what you think.
There are so many different kinds of mushrooms out there to choose from that I just want to encourage you to try something new and different.
Every once and a while it can’t hurt and the results might just surprise you.
Creamy Chicken Pasta Recipe
When you think about it, most love chicken in a creamy sauce with pasta. Luckily thus mushroom sauce goes beautifully with mashed potatoes and rice too.
I want to mention that I have served pasta tossed with this dish as well and we all loved it. I get in there and chop up and almost shred the chicken.
Stir and make sure the mushroom sauce is totally blended together. Add pasta and serve.
The only problem with doing it this way is leftovers. I am not a fan of how the pasta handles being stored inside this or any sauce, if given the choice.
I hate soggy, puffy pasta if I can avoid it so I generally keep the pasta and sauce separate.
As always, how you do it is up to you!
Creamy Chicken and Mushroom
We absolutely love mushrooms and serve them in so many things. Overall, I find them reasonably priced and super tasty in everything they’re added to.
It’s true, some mushrooms can be expensive depending on the time of year or where you are.
Choose the variety of mushroom that works best for you.
For us, mushrooms are readily available all year ’round and go with anything and everything, not just chicken! Hopefully I’m not the only one who feels that way.
Creamy Chicken Crock Pot Recipe
Everyone needs a creamy chicken recipe that can be made inside a slow cooker or crock pot don’t you think?
Well I do and this is that creamy chicken slow cooker recipe and I kid you not!
There is a little preparation work here just cooking the mushrooms and a few other things inside your skillet.
It’s super important to cook your mushrooms so your sauce doesn’t turn out watery. The mushrooms must be allowed to release their water before going inside your slow cooker or crock pot.
I suggest using a skillet to do this but a pot will work just fine too. As long as you don’t skip this step you will be impressed with the results.
I can almost guarantee it.
