Featured Recipe: Chicken and mushroom pasta

Ingredients

  • 2 ⅔ c. rigatoni pasta (or other tube-shaped pasta)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 12 oz. skinless, boneless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and minced
  • 3 c. white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ c. low-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ c. dry white wine (or chicken broth)
  • 1 c. tomatoes, chopped
  • ¼ c. fresh basil, shredded
  • 1 tbsp. dried oregano
  • ¼ c. shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

Cook pasta, drain, and set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the salt and 1/8 teaspoon of the black pepper on chicken, then cook for 5 minutes or until center of chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet and keep warm.

Add remainder of the oil to skillet with garlic, mushrooms, and onions. Stir-fry until onions are just tender.

Pour in broth and wine, then bring to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered until liquid is reduced to about half, stirring occasionally (about 5 to 10 minutes.)

Remove skillet from heat. Add the pasta, chicken, tomatoes, basil, and oregano; toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
