Chicken Rigatoni w/ Mushroom Cream Sauce

This creamy pasta dish is the perfect dinner alternative to Italian takeout

Chef Luis Reyes


  • 4 C Crescent Foods Cooked Chicken Breast (leftover chicken works perfect in this recipe)
  • 6 C Cooked Rigatoni Pasta (Aldente)
  • 3 C White Mushrooms – washed and padded dry
  • 1 C Diced white onions
  • ¾ C Fresh Basil – chopped
  • ¼ C Fresh Garlic
  • 1 C Chicken Broth
  • 2 C Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 oz Butter (butter will give viscosity and will hold the sauce ingredients together)
  • Sea Salt – to taste
  • Black Pepper – to taste
  • 1/2 C Parmesan Cheese


  1. In a large sauce pot, add ½ c of cooking oil and heat on medium high.
  2. Add mushrooms and stirring occasionally pan roast until they become ½ of their original size and have a golden-brown color. Add onions ½ way through the mushroom cooking process. By the time the mushrooms are done, the onions will begin to soften.
  3. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add garlic and ½ of the fresh basil. Stir into the ingredients and let cook for 1 minute and stir occasionally. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  5. At this point add the chicken broth, heavy cream and butter and reduce by half.
  6. Add the pulled chicken and the cooked rigatoni to the sauce and allow the sauce to heat those ingredients.
  7. Add the remaining basil and the parmesan cheese to the pasta dish, (stir the pasta) and season to taste.
  8. Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese over the finish dish and enjoy.

Bon Appetite!
