Farfalle pasta tossed with a creamy garlic sauce and chicken.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • 1 (4 ounce) can mushroom pieces and stems, drained
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons crushed garlic
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook farfalle at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and pour farfalle back into pot.
  2. 2 Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook chicken in the hot oil until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and slice into thin strips.
  3. 3 Melt 2 tablespoons butter into the same skillet; cook and stir onions in the melted butter until transparent, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir mushrooms and chicken strips into onions; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
  4. 4 Heat 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet; stir flour into melted butter until dissolved, about 1 minute. Slowly whisk milk into flour mixture until smooth; add garlic, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil for 1 minute; reduce heat.
  5. 5 Stir chicken mixture and garlic sauce into farfalle; cook and stir over medium-low heat until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

  8. This was the best ever! I used spaghetti noodles instead. I also sprinkled bread crumbs on top and baked at 350 for 15 minutes. Yummy!
  9. I seasoned my chicken with salt free poultry rub. Omitted mushrooms and re-used some pans but otherwise followed everything to the letter. Very decent dish...could do with a dash of sherry and a deglazing of wine in the pan after frying the chicken.
