Chicken Dijonnaise Pasta with Mushrooms and Toasted Almonds


1 lb Campanelle pasta, cooked (or linguine as the original recipe called for)
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves minced garlic
Salt and pepper to season
4 oz white wine
2 cups whipping cream
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds


1. Heat olive oil in a large heavy bottomed frying pan over medium low heat. Add chicken breasts and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and continue to fry the chicken until completely cooked. Remove chicken from pan and hold in a warm oven.

2. Add wine to the pan and simmer until reduced by half. Add cream and mustard. Simmer until sauce thickens enough to coat a spoon.

3. Return chicken to the sauce, add the mushrooms and simmer for another 2 minutes. Serve over cooked pasta. Sprinkle with toasted slivered almonds.

I am blasting this song which I absolutely adore.

You know…I’m not quite sure what is going on, but I feel the emotion deep within me. Guns? Whoa. And I am a runner. And I adore piano.

“You should have died that very night
Good job for you I wasn’t born a killer”

Man, I LOVE this song.
Fryars-The Ides

Did I mention that FrYars is a one man band? Ben Garrett does it all (piano, drums, computer, accordion drone, synths, bells, vocals).

    I need to try this dish, if for no other reason then I love the joke! Totally cracks me up every time!

    This dish is delicious! It can be made very quickly (I made this as a late night dinner). I had leftover caramelized onions that added an extra flavor boost! Yummy. Add a glass of wine on the side and you’re good to go. (P.S. I didn’t need to add as much cream as the recipe asks for- always looking to keep the calories down!)
