Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (8 oz/250 g total)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 onions sliced
  • 1 lb mushroom sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 4 cups rotini pasta
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Method

Cut chicken across the grain into thin strips. In large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; cook chicken, stirring, for about 4 minutes or until golden and no longer pink inside. Transfer to plate; keep warm.

Add remaining oil to pan; cook onions, mushrooms and thyme, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or just until mushrooms are golden and liquid is evaporated. Sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in chicken stock and evaporated milk; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in chicken.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm; drain and return to pot. Add sauce and half of the parsley; toss to coat. Serve sprinkled with remaining parsley.
