Pasta is the best comfort food so I’m always trying out new recipes and flavors to change things up. Who else loves one pot meals? It makes dinner so easy. This recipe is only made with a few ingredients and those are always a winner for me. You probably have the ingredients in your fridge and pantry already.

One Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta Recipe

This recipe calls for rosemary because I LOVE rosemary.  I know a lot of people don’t like it so you can replace that with thyme or Italian seasonings instead.  You can change it easily for your taste and don’t have to worry about messy up the rest of the recipe.

I just threw in some asparagus we had in the refrigerator in a skillet with some butter and garlic and it was the perfect addition to this meal! 

Ingredients for Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta

Angel hair pasta– Angel hair pasta is great for this recipe because it’s smaller and each pasta piece can get covered in the yummy sauce.

Butter– Salted or unsalted butter is fine. I use whatever I have in my fridge.  I’ve also been dying for one of these butter crocks!

Mushrooms– You can use whatever mushrooms you like. I use regular button mushrooms and buy them presliced to save time.

Chicken breasts– Chicken breast is what’s listed in this recipe, but you can use boneless and skinless thighs as well.

Cream cheese– This is the ingredient that makes this dish creamy and yummy! No heavy cream or milk in this recipe.

White wine– Sauvignon blanc and chardonnay are great wines to cook with. If you don’t have wine, then you can substitute chicken broth or chicken stock.
