Pasta with chicken & mushroom cream sauce

This is one meal which comes under my quick cooking days menu. Its kids friendly and I can make it in under 30 mins. It is very easy to cook but packed with flavor. You just need a handful of ingredients to put it together.


Pasta                                                 250 grms pack (preferably rotini or penne)
Chicken breast                                   2 cups cut in thin strips
