Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo #SundaySupper

Valentine’s Day is Friday. Hard to believe, isn’t it? This week’s #SundaySupper Theme is Valentine’s Recipes for Two.

I’ve been on a big cooking with mushrooms kick so I combined that with my favorite restaurant style pasta dish- Chicken Alfredo to come up with Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo.

Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo brings a special touch to an anytime meal.

It’s kind of funny that I’m participating in a Valentine’s Day themed #SundaySupper since it’s not all that big of a deal to me. In fact the best Valentine’s Day I ever had was the year my sister and I went out for pizza and to see the second Harry Potter movie at the dollar theater. That tells you how long ago that was.

But I couldn’t resist the chance to make chicken Alfredo especially with mushrooms added. Pasta is my love language.

Recipe Notes

Butterflying chicken is basically cutting one piece of chicken open like you would a loaf of French bread to make garlic bread. You turn that single chicken breast into two. That makes it a great way to stretch your chicken breasts and your food budget.
