Kale chips with parmesan
Chicken and mushrooms in cream sauce over fettuccine pasta
1 1/2 lb chicken (you can also use beef)
2 cups mushrooms, sliced or whole, your choice. If I'm in the mood to slice, I slice. Otherwise, dump 'em in whole.
3 large cloves of garlic, grated
1/4 cup green onion, sliced
1 cup chicken or beef broth (chicken broth allows the taste of the cream to come through,
the beef broth adds a depth of flavor without an overly rich cream taste. Try both versions!)
1 cup heavy cream (can sub evaporated milk, sour cream or cream cheese)
1 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
1/2 tsp corn starch
1/2 lb fettuccine
salt and pepper to taste
In a large pan, melt 2 tbls butter with coconut oil, add chicken, mushrooms and garlic, salt and pepper (if desired.)
When the fettuccine is al dente, add it to the pan with the chicken. Turn off the heat and allow it to
Cook slowly until chicken is no longer pink and mushrooms are cooked the way you like them.
Remove chicken and mushrooms from pan with slotted spoon (or whatever, sometimes I use a large fork),
do not drain the pan. Add 2 tbls butter, when melted add the broth and simmer for 8-10 minutes to reduce.
Add the cream and the milk, simmer 8-10 minutes to reduce. Whisk in cornstarch, taste for seasoning, add if needed,
and simmer another 2-3 minutes.
Add the chicken and mushrooms back to the pan with the green onion and simmer lightly while you cook the fettuccine.
**The pasta should never wait for the sauce,
the sauce should always wait for the pasta**
stand for about 5 minutes for the sauce to thicken and the pasta to start absorbing the flavor.
Sprinkle with Locatelli.
