This is my take on Jollibee’s new Pasta dish – Chicken & Mushroom Pasta.  My daughter loved it so much that I decided to make one at home, actually this is a healthier version.  Delish and so easy to prepare.  Make this dish tonight!
1 tbsp Olive oil or Vegetable oil
500 grams  Boneless Chicken Breast, cut into ½  x 1 inchstrips
1 tbsp Chopped Garlic
1 pc Chopped Onion
1 can Diced Tomatoes
½ cup Tomato Sauce
1 cup Sliced mushrooms
¼ cup All Purpose Cream
Few pcs of Fresh Basil Leaves (or you can use ½ tsp Dried Basil leaves)
Sugar, salt and pepper to taste
300 grams  Cooked pasta (spaghetti, fettucine or penne)
Cooking Instructions:
·        In a cooking pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-heat.  Add the garlic, then the onion, when the onion turns translucent, add the chicken and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes or until its just beginning to brown. 
·        Then add the mushroom, the tomato chunks and tomato sauce, cook for another 5 to 7 minutes.  Put ¼ cup water, season with salt and pepper.  Cover with a lid, lower the heat a bit more and cook for another 10 minutes stirring occasionally. 

·        Then add  the chopped fresh basil (or dried basil leaves) and the cream, adjust seasoning, if you find the tomato taste too strong, ad about 1/4 tsp of sugar.  Serve over cooked pasta and sprinkle with grated cheese.  Enjoy!

Delicious! will make this for my family, if I do not have basil available on hand, can I use oregano maybe?

Hi! Thank you for visiting. Yes, you can also use oregano, am sure it will be just as delicious.

Yey! Found your recipe!
My daughter can devour 3 orders of Jollibee's chicken mushroom pasta in one sitting. I figured I have to make it at home to save some money.
Thanks for sharing!
