Chicken With Garlic Cream Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is very similar to a pasta dish that I love at Macaroni Grill. I think it's called Pasta Milano.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the chicken in the liquid over med-high heat until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  2. Remove chicken and keep warm.
  3. In the meantime, heat about a teaspoon of olive oil in a separate pan.
  4. Add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Saute, covered, until mushrooms are done, about 10 minutes.
  6. Finely chop the garlic and cut the cream cheese into small pieces.
  7. Add to the broth and cook, stirring until melted and thickened, about 5-8 minutes.
  8. Add the tomatoes, mushrooms, herbs and spices, and stir.
  9. Add the chicken and stir to coat.
  10. Serve on a bed of arugula, spinach or mesclun (mixed salad greens).
  11. I liked the slight bitterness of the arugula.
  12. Went well with the creamy sauce.

This was wonderful! I made the original recipe, but I added some diced onion and sweet bell pepper slices. I served rice and asian vegetables on the side. Thank you for the easy, tasty recipe! :)

This was delicious! I used the original recipe, but added the red pepper. I served it with bow tie pasta.
