This is a great recipe and cooks pretty quickly as well. I am not a fan of Alfredo sauce with my Pasta and honestly the boys were never big fans of cheese sauce either but when I came across dish that has Mushrooms and Chicken cooked with Garlic, it kind of sounded interesting.
So I got down to trying and cooking my own. I love Mushrooms, but the kids aren’t a big fan so the dish had to be interesting enough. Roasting garlic in the oven enhances the flavor in a dish. So, I roasted garlic with skin with olive oil, salt and pepper till its soft and mushy. Cook the chicken pieces in a pan with little oil, salt and pepper. Further adding butter and oil to the same pan and added the mushed garlic and a little chicken broth followed by mushrooms. After it comes to a boil added a little heavy cream and further the cooked chicken. I also added Red chili flakes and White pepper for extra flavor.
This dish can be served by itself or with Rice too, since its a little saucy, but I personally felt that it goes on best with pasta. I served it with Spaghetti Pasta and a side of Garlic bread. Trust me, my boys who do not like Mushroom at all loved this dish. This dish easily qualifies as an awesomely flavorful and delicious dish. The taste is that of a dish you’d get at a high end Italian restaurant. It might seem a little complicated but trust me if you follow the recipe and make it once, you will become pro and will manage making this dish in no time. This dish is actually perfect for those surprise dinner dates. This impresses anyone and everyone.

Pasta cooked with Garlic Chicken and Mushroom
This dish is magical and has an awesome rich taste.
Easy to make and easier to impress.
Preheat the oven to 350F. Chop the head of the garlic. Drizzle a little olive oil, salt and black pepper and place it in the oven for 30 minutes.
The garlic should be golden brown from the top.
Squeeze out the garlic and make a paste.
Add dry rosemary, dry parsley, 1/4 tsp white pepper and little salt to the Chicken. Mix well.
Add some olive oil to the pan and add chicken. Cook from both sides till the chicken changes color. Usually takes 2-3 minutes each side. Take it out and keep aside.
In the same pan, add butter and the remaining Olive oil. Add mashed Garlic and saute for 30 seconds.
Add red chili flakes and saute for another 10 seconds.
Add the chicken broth. [Now I don't use the store chicken broth and make my own, but using any chicken broth should be good]
Add Mushrooms and cook for around 5-7 minutes till the broth reduces a little.
Add the chopped onions and cook for another 5 minutes.
Add the heavy cream and the remaining white pepper powder and black pepper powder.
Add the cooked chicken and cook for another 5 minutes till the sauce thickens.
Cook Pasta according to the package instructions.
Place the cooked pasta in the serving plate.
Top it up with the cooked Garlic Chicken and Mushroom. Add a little sauce and Red chili flakes too if you like. Serve it by itself or with a little Garlic bread on the side. Enjoy!!!
