This Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine is a delicious and easy pasta recipe. Watch the video showing you how to make this recipe, and then scroll to the bottom of this post and print out the recipe so you can make it at home.
This is a comforting pasta dish full of hot fettuccine noodles that have been tossed in a light cream sauce with oodles of sauteed mushrooms and chicken. My husband and I love pasta like there’s no tomorrow. That’s not such a great thing, I guess… but when it’s made with delicious ingredients, who can resist?? This Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine is one of our favorite dishes to make for dinner.
My husband and I happily gobble up every bite of this pasta when we make it for dinner. My son refuses to eat mushrooms, so he’s not into this one. I’m thankful that he’s beginning to eat tomatoes… and that he’s fairly willing to try most other vegetables, but I just can’t get him to eat those darn mushrooms. Oh well, more for me! I keep telling him that someday he will LOVE mushrooms. He does not believe me- ha!
If you’re a mushroom lover, then this Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine dish is for you. And if you’re not a mushroom lover, you can certainly push them aside or leave them out.

Chicken Mushroom Fettuccine
- 2 teaspoons vegetable or canola oil
- 8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
- 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons all purpose flour
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- 4 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
- 1½ cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 cups hot cooked fettuccine
- chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
- Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the chicken and cook 3 minutes on each side, or until tender and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the pan, let it rest for a couple of minutes, and then slice it into small strips and set aside.
- Add the mushrooms and garlic to the skillet; cook for 1 minute, stirring. Sprinkle with flour, stirring quickly. Stir in the broth and milk. Reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes, until the mixture thickens- stirring occasionally. Stir in the cheeses and pepper.
- Return the chicken to the skillet; cook, stirring for about 2 minutes, until the chicken warms up.
- Arrange the fettuccine on four plates. Top with chicken and sauce. Garnish with parsley.
This is an easy recipe… thank you so much for sharing! At the last minute I decided to double it… oh my goodness I could eat the whole pot of this myself right now!
THANK YOU I JUST MADE THIS. IT WAS SO YUMMY, FILLING AND I WILL BE COOKING THIS AGAIN NEXT WEEK AND THE WEEK AFTER THAT.
Rookie mistake…didn’t make sure I had all ingred. Used cheddar cheese….worked great! Love this recipe. Added peas(just because I love them) and it was really good too! Thanks for the recipe!!
I made this last night and it was delicious!! We will be making this regularly now! Thanks so much for sharing this!
This was really good. My daughter said it tastes like a dish from our local Italian restaurant.
Happy to hear that!
I tried this recipe. It was disappointing. For us, the parmesan cheese was far too much, overpowered the taste.
Curious if you used grated or shredded? It’s very much the same as an Alfredo sauce is made…
Ok. Tasted like mushroom soup on noodles. Won’t make again.
Does this call for sweetened or unsweetened evaporated milk?
I must have done something wrong because we absolutely could not eat this dish!
I swapped evaporated milk for cream and chicken broth for campbells chicken stock, added 2 garlic cloves and it’s amazing!!! Love this pasta 🤗
What is the shelf life of this dish in the fridge?
I would say probably a couple of days.
Hi thank you for this recipe it was a hit, and will be my go-to.
🙂 happy eattings!
We weren’t pasta lovers until we tried this recipe! I sometimes cook it exactly how the recipe says and sometimes I add lees chicken but include some smoked bacon and onion and then I don’t use any oil or Parmesan. Both ways are absolutely delicious!

This is one of the most flavorful and satisfying pasta dishes I’ve ever tried! Delicious!
We could not get enough! There were definitely no leftovers of this fettuccine! The flavor was amazing!
This recipe is drool worthy! It’s so good, and that sauce is delicious!!
This quickly became a new favorite meal at our house!
My husband doesn’t eat mushrooms either, but I just pile his share on my plate. This is the perfect weeknight meal—quick and absolutely delicious!!
Delicious! Perfect for those busy weeknights!
Awesome!!! I turned it into a quick casserole for a meeting!!!
I made this tonight.. wish i could post a picture.. it came out delish.. I also made homemade garlic parsley fettuccine noodles to go with it.. My husband who does not like mushrooms ate it. I doubled the cream recipie as well..
I loved it I’m a pasta girl tho I’m Italian
This was wonderful and I had all the ingredients without having to go to the store. My husband said I could make this again!! And that is a compliment!
Absolutely delicious!! Loved the beautiful blend of flavours. Great job on this creation!
Mmm mm mmmm! Going to be making this tonight with some fresh gnocchi. It makes me sad when people don’t love mushrooms. I think he will eventually. Maybe try first with canned champignons since they don’t have a strong mushroomy flavour to get him interested 🙂
This looks freaking amazing! Can’t wait to try it out.
Mushrooms are the bomb – yummo!
Oh yum! That looks absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to try out this recipe. Thanks
This looks so comforting and delicious! I am a big fan of mushrooms so this creamy mushroom fettuccine sounds perfect!
Mushrooms are one of my favorite veggies! Gotta try this 🙂
This is a meal right up my alley. The more mushrooms the better, and the light cream sauce sounds fantastic! Pinned.
We love pasta! This looks delicious!!
I’ll take his share. LOVE this!
I just got a pasta attachment for my KitchenAid and have been searching for a perfect fettuccine recipe. I think I just found it!
Yum – thank you.
Dang, that looks awesome. We all love mushrooms. Going into town today so I’ll be getting what I need to make this.
I hated mushrooms until I was about 20, and now I can’t get enough. I’m sure your son will be inhaling this soon enough 🙂 This is creamy, dreamy comfort food Lori (PS. I love your redesign too!)
There is oodles of goodness in these noodles (had to!) I recently learned that I actually LOVE mushrooms, so this dinner is totally what I am dreaming about going face-first into tonight! Pinned!
If I had to pick a dream pasta, it would be a creamy one full of mushrooms just like this. Your son is missing out! (My kids won’t eat them either.) Looks amazing!
