Creamy Dijon Chicken Linguine

I have to admit that this is one of my all time favourite Dijon Chicken and pasta recipes. I got it many years ago from a restaurant owner in downtown St. John’s who was kind enough to share it with me.

On the rare occasion that I cook only for myself, this is a likely candidate for my meal for one but it  would make a great meal for sweethearts to share too.

Over the past few years it has become very popular on Rock Recipes and has been consistently in our TOP TEN recipes of all time and we’ve got over 1600 on the site. I constantly hear rave reviews for this dish, either from couples or families who love it as a quick and easy weekday meal.

The recipe has also been used by numerous followers as an easy dinner party dish that impresses. Your guests will leave wanting the recipe for this simple, luscious and versatile dish.

See the video I did for this recipe in collaboration with CBC Newfoundland and Labrador.

I like to debone my own chicken breasts so that I can roast the bones and skins for stock later. I freeze them until I have enough to cover a baking sheet then use the instructions in my post on making Chicken Stock here.

This looks amazing...just have a question. Are the mushrooms cooked prior to adding to the sauce? Thanks so much.

Can I use half and half instead of 35% cream? This looks amazing but the cream steers me away!

I'd certainly give it a try. You may have to simmer the sauce a little longer after adding it.
