  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

How to Make It

  1. Cook pasta in a Dutch oven according to package directions. Drain, return to Dutch oven, and keep warm.

  2. Sprinkle chicken with 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Dredge in flour.

  3. Sauté chicken, in batches, in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is browned. Remove and keep warm.

  4. Add onions, mushrooms, and garlic to skillet; sauté 5 to 7 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly browned. Stir in chicken broth and next 3 ingredients, and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of skillet.
