I’m a very busy woman and believe me when I say sometimes I don’t have time for the fancy stuff. Besides a clutch stir-fry, the next easiest go-to dish is a pasta. All you have to do is figure out the sauce situation. This is something that can be done and over with in 30 mins if you are about your hustle. So last night I cut some MAJOR corners but was the pasta amazing? Um yeah!
4 lbs of chicken breast
8 oz of sliced baby bella mushrooms
2 packs of linguine noodles
1/2 cup of Marsala cooking wine
1/2 cup of chicken broth
2 cans of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup
fresh parsley chopped
4 cloves of garlic chopped
sea salt and pepper to taste
On high heat in a stock pot, bring water, a tablespoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of salt to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Then break the linguine in half and drop it in. Cut on a timer for 9 mins. I do this because when I multitask I don’t want to ruin the noodles by forgetting about them. It’s happened way too many times. LOL. Once the noodles are ready, drain them and run cold water through them to make sure they aren’t sticking together.
Rinse the chicken and pound each breast with a tenderizer. Slice the breasts into strips. On medium heat, saute them in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano until fully cooked. Then set them aside. Lastly on medium heat: combine chicken broth, cream of mushroom soup, marsala wine, garlic, bella mushrooms in a pan and cook for about 7 minutes. It is going to thin out so don’t worry. Stir and keep an eye on it so that the sauce does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Toss back in the chicken strips and let simmer another 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and more oregano to taste.
Garnish on top with fresh chopped parsley and serve over the linguine noodles.
