Honestly the creamy mushroom chicken is so good, I barely ate any of the pasta because I could not stop eating the chicken!

I don’t even know if I’ll serve it with pasta next time, maybe just a caesar salad on the side and a crispy baguette to sop up any extra sauce, can’t let that deliciousness go to waste!
