Engagement Chicken Pasta


I love this Engagement Chicken Pasta recipe. It is a perfect meal for two and tastes like you’ve been standing over the pot all day when in reality, you can have this on the table in under 45 minutes! My top tip when searing chicken, let it cook undisturbed so that a golden crust forms. If the chicken sticks to the pan, it’s because the first side isn’t done searing. It will release when it’s golden brown.

To make this delicious pasta dish, start by cooking spaghetti in a saucepan. In a skillet, cook mushrooms in melted butter with thyme until golden brown. Remove the mushrooms from the pan, but leave the butter and thyme behind and add oil. Season the chicken breasts and sear over medium high heat in the same pan that the mushrooms were in. Remove the chicken and make the sauce using white wine and cream cheese. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and add it to the sauce immediately. Toss well until evenly coated and stir the mushrooms into the pasta bowl. Slice the chicken and serve on top garnished with microgreens.

Ingridiens for Engagement Chicken Pasta

Steps to make Engagement Chicken Pasta


Cook spaghetti


Cook spaghetti in a saucepan of boiling water according to package directions.


Sauté mushrooms


Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a non-stick skillet with 1 teaspoon of dried thyme over medium heat. Add 10 ounces of sliced mushrooms to the melted butter and stir to coat. Leave the mushrooms undisturbed for a few minutes to form a crust. Stir, and repeat for about 15 minutes until the mushrooms are golden brown.


Set mushrooms aside


Remove the mushrooms from the pan using a slotted spoon but leave the butter and thyme. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the melted butter.


Sear chicken


Season the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper. Place the chicken in the pan with the melted butter and oil. Cook undisturbed until a crust forms. Flip and sear on the other side until cooked through. Remove the chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm.


Deglaze pan


Turn the heat under the pan to low and add ½ a cup of white wine. As the wine cooks down, scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to incorporate the flavors of the chicken and mushrooms.


Make sauce


Cut the cream cheese into chunks in a bowl. Pour the hot wine over the cream cheese and stir until it melts. Some small pieces may remain, but the hot pasta will dissolve them.


Drain pasta and add to sauce


Once the spaghetti is cooked, drain it and pour it over the sauce immediately. Toss the spaghetti to melt and evenly distribute the remaining cream cheese.




Stir in mushrooms and serve immediately, with the sliced chicken on top and garnished with microgreens.
