Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo

I’ve been on a big cooking with mushrooms kick so I combined that with my favorite restaurant style pasta dish- Chicken Alfredo to come up with Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo.

Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo brings a special touch to an anytime meal.

It’s kind of funny that I’m participating in a Valentine’s Day themed #SundaySupper since it’s not all that big of a deal to me. In fact the best Valentine’s Day I ever had was the year my sister and I went out for pizza and to see the second Harry Potter movie at the dollar theater. That tells you how long ago that was.

But I couldn’t resist the chance to make chicken Alfredo especially with mushrooms added. Pasta is my love language.

Chicken and Mushrooms combined with pasta and a quick and easy Alfredo sauce brings a special touch to an anytime meal.

Recipe Notes

Butterflying chicken is basically cutting one piece of chicken open like you would a loaf of French bread to make garlic bread. You turn that single chicken breast into two. That makes it a great way to stretch your chicken breasts and your food budget.
