- 1-1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin 2-in strips
- 1 medium onion, finely diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 5 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
- 12 oz uncooked egg noodles
- 1-1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
- 4 oz softened cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons fresh minced parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute chicken strips, onion, and garlic in olive oil until chicken is no longer pink, about 8 minutes.
Stir in flour until smooth then slowly stir in chicken broth, milk, and half-and-half. Add egg noodles to skillet and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer covered until thickened and creamy and noodles are tender, about 10-15 minutes.
Reduce heat to low and stir mushrooms, cream cheese, and parsley into noodles and gently cook over low heat until cream cheese is melted and mushrooms are softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy!
