One-Pot Creamy Mushroom Chicken Pasta


An easy weeknight pasta dish that you can make in one pot!

One-Pot Creamy Chicken Mushroom Pasta
Servings:  6

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, cut in chunks
2 cups sliced white or button mushrooms
1 white onion, sliced
3 cups chicken stock
1 ½ cups heavy cream
1 cup Marsala wine*
3 cups uncooked penne pasta
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Fresh parsley (optional garnish)

1. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Remove and set aside.  
2. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil, and the mushrooms and onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until onions are browned, stirring occasionally.
3. Return the chicken to the pot. Add the stock, cream, wine, and pasta and bring up to a simmer. Add the pasta and cover.
4. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  
5. When pasta is tender, stir in parmesan cheese until smooth. Remove from heat.
6. Garnish with fresh parsley.
7. Enjoy!

*Marsala wine can be purchased at most grocery stores near the dessert or sweet wines and gives the dish a distinct flavor. However, if you can’t get your hands on Marsala, you can substitute 1 cup of white wine plus 1 ½ tablespoons of brandy.

  1. This recipe turned out to be a soup.. You guys need to fix the ratios in the description.. Cause this tastes good but there's noway it's for only 3 cups of pasta… Soups on lol..

  2. I really like these no-frills videos. No more human narcissism and hyperbole about their "amazing"" food! I will be the judge if your food is amazing, thanks.

  3. Made this last night for dinner – super delicious! But, I really feel like 3 cups of chicken broth was WAY too much…maybe even a typo (it doesn't quite look like that much in the video)? The sauce ended up way too watery even after the noodles were tender, so I ended up taking everything out and reducing the sauce a bit before adding it back in. Would still recommend! :)

  4. Just made this exactly as recipe called and it was good, but it lacked some kind of zip or distinct flavor, as it was good but a bit bland and sweet due to the marsala. I think the addition of garlic would be good, or maybe even some more spices. Good recipe but gotta spice this up and it would be amazing.

  5. We made this the other day but we added fresh spinach and substituted 3 cheese (Asiago, Mozzarella, Parmesan) for the cheese. None left….it was all eaten.
