Chicken and Mushroom Pasta with Simple Pesto White Wine Sauce

Chicken and Mushroom Pasta with Simple Pesto White Wine Sauce


Ingredients:
2 tablespoon butter (divided)
1 lb boneless, skinless thin chicken breasts, or tenders (cut up in 1 inch chunks)
10 oz white mushrooms (thickly sliced)
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
salt and pepper
Check below.

Instructions:
  • Step number 1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken chunks to the hot skillet, generously season them with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning right in the skillet and cook for about 4 minutes on one side, flip once and cook for 2 additional minutes on the other side.
  • After that, In order to not overcrowd the pan I cooked chicken in 2 rounds (this avoids overs-teaming it and ensures proper browning). Because the pan will be hotter on the second round, reduce cooking time for chicken to 2 minutes per side. Add a splash of olive oil to the second round of cooking chicken. Remove cooked chicken from skillet after each round.
  • Next, Add second tablespoon of olive oil and second tablespoon of butter to the now empty skillet. Once the pan is hot, add sliced mushrooms, generously season them with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning right in the skillet.
