Honey Mustard Chicken Pasta!

I tried this recipe for the first time last night and it was a huge hit. I was a bit skeptical at first because I didn't quite know how the honey mustard would combine with the pasta...I'm used to honey mustard for chicken strips or as a dressing on a salad but NEVER on pasta.

It was REALLY REALLY good! Big thumbs up for this one!

HONEY MUSTARD CHICKEN PASTA

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
  • 4 bacon strips, diced
  • 2/3 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 2/3 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. In the drippings, saute mushrooms and onion until tender. 

Add garlic; saute for 1 minute. Stir in the chicken, peas, soup, milk, mustard, honey, parsley, salt if desired, pepper and bacon. Cook and stir over medium heat until heated through. Drain pasta; add to skillet and toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I drained the pasta and just tossed it all into the skillet. Stir everything well and there ya go.....


This was a super quick and simple recipe.

I love honey mustard anything, but like you, think its a bit odd to pair with pasta. But I think I am going to give it a try. I'm emailing it to myself to print out at work on Monday...
