  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Stir chicken mixture and garlic sauce into farfalle; cook and stir over medium-low heat until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

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. Read More

This was okay the first time I tried it. I had followed the recipe. But it was kind of watery and I couldn't really taste the garlic. The second time I pounded the chicken and seasoned it with salt pepper poultry seasoning and thyme. I increased the rue by 2 tbs and only uses 2 cups of milk. I all so used more garlic. And I added 2 tablespoons of Basil for color and flavor. And it was much better! I'd give it 4 stars with a little tweaking! Read More

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! Read More

I followed this recipe to a "T" for the sauce portion. I personally found it kind of bland I would experiment with other spices. However my husband LOVED it as it was. I would make this again. Read More

First I sliced up the raw chicken and put in a bowl. I added basil garlic salt pepper and Thyme and tossed it good. Then I cooked the chicken like the recipe stated. I also used Angel Hair pasta. At the end prior to serving I added parmesan cheese and tossed it a little. Great with garlic toast too. Read More

Great recipe! But....I added extra onions & just before it was time to put the chicken in with it I added leftover green beans peas corn & carrots. Added nice color too. When I put the chicken in the pan I sprinkled seasoned salt on each piece....along with garlic powder. When I added the garlic to the sauce I also added 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese & onion powder (1 1/2 tsp) & seasoned salt to the sauce & stirred until it was well blended. Then I put the chicken (already covered in sauce) to the side & dumped the rest of everything into a 9x13 glass dish. I pressed the pieces of chicken all along the top so we could find them lol. I sprinkled Parmesan cheese then topped with breadcrumbs....drizzling 1/4 cup of melted butter (the MELTED butter measured out to 1/4 cup...). Then baked for about 25 minutes @ 350. AWESOME!!!!

Sauce could use an additional herb or something but overall not too shabby. Read More
