The Ingredients

The Sauce:

1 stick of salted butter

1 tablespoon of garlic paste

1 cup of heavy whipping cream

2 cups of Parmesan cheese

The meal:

1 package of chicken breasts

1 package of button mushrooms, sliced

1 pound of pasta (we use angel hair but you can use what you like best)

Coconut oil

Garlic salt, celery salt or just salt and pepper to season the chicken breasts

Start by getting a pot of water ready for the pasta.  Once boiling, salt the water and cook the pasta per package directions.  Drain and set aside when done to al dente.

Next, slice the chicken if you prefer strips. Omit this step if you want to serve the breasts whole.  Season with salt and pepper (we add garlic salt and celery salt as well).

Next, slice the mushrooms.  Heat coconut oil and a squirt of garlic paste in a saute pan.

Stir in the Parmesan cheese and allow to melt.

You’ll want to stir pretty consistently so that the cheese doesn’t burn on the bottom.

Once the cheese has melted into the sauce you are ready to serve!

Assemble by layering the pasta, chicken and mushrooms in a serving bowl and spooning the sauce over it.
