INSTRUCTIONS

Prep

Preheat oven to 350°F & move the rack to the top third of the oven;

Cut chicken into bite size pieces, season with salt, pepper, ½ Italian seasoning, place in bowl;

Bring pot of water to boil with a pinch of salt;

Remove leaves from stems, roughly chop parsley. 

1Make Pasta

Add pasta to boiling water, cook for 5-7 minutes; it should still be slightly undercooked. Drain, set aside. 

2 Prepare Chicken

Add a drizzle of oil to skillet & 1 tablespoon butter & ½ onion garlic blend. Sauté the onion for 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned.

Add in the chicken & cook for 5-6 minutes or until it's almost cooked through (don't overcook). Transfer the chicken to a plate (don't worry if there's some onions left in the pot).

3Prepare Mushrooms

Add the rest of onion/garlic blend, 2 tablespoons of butter, other half of Italian seasoning & mushrooms to the pot. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the mushrooms have released their water & it's mostly cooked off.

4Prepare sauce & bake

Increase the heat to high, add in stock, cream, cream cheese. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring nearly constantly to help the cream cheese melt in. Turn off the heat, add chicken & pasta to the pot, give it a good stir.

Transfer to a baking dish, arrange it in an even layer. Sprinkle the top with cheese blend.

Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes & then broil for a few minutes until the top has browned a bit (watch it carefully). Let it sit for about 5 minutes once you take it out of the oven.

5Prepare Salad

Add greens & dressing to a bowl, toss well. 

6To Serve

Cut the pasta like you would lasagna, serve with side salad!
