Step 1

1. Bring salted water to a boil in steam-jacketed kettle or large stockpot on stovetop. Cook pasta as directed on package; drain.

Step 3

3. Increase heat to medium-high; add mushrooms. Cook 6-8 min. until softened and most liquid is evaporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add sherry; deglaze pan. Add broth; cook 8-10 minutes until chicken is tender and sauce is slightly thickened.

Step 4

Step 5

Chef Notes: Garnish this dish with chopped fresh herbs such as Italian parsley or chervil or truffle shavings.

A mix of cremini, shitake and button mushrooms works well.
