Garlic and butter are a match made in heaven. Anytime I’m looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner that is also deeply comforting, I reach for these two ingredients. Add chicken, mushrooms and pasta for the easiest, most delicious dinner you could imagine. Your family will be begging you to make this on a weekly basis!
I’m a huge fan of chicken thighs. They are more flavorful than chicken breast, and they tend to stay juicier and tender without drying out. They’re just as easy to cook as the breast, and they’re less expensive, so what’s not to love? If you have an aversion to dark meat, feel free to make this recipe with chicken breasts instead.
Why this recipe works: Savory mushrooms, aromatic thyme, tender and juicy chicken and a deeply satisfying garlic-butter sauce to coat the noodles. This meal is comforting and nourishing in every way.
Pro tip: Any pasta can be substituted for the farfalle, such as penne or shells. Feel free to substitute frozen peas for the mushrooms, adding the peas with the pasta in step 5.
