Creamy Linguine Pasta with Chicken, Cabbage,
Mushrooms and Fresh Thye


Ingredients:
500 gm Linguine Pasta or Spaghetti, cooked al dente
50 gm butter
3 cloves garlic, chopped
240 gm boneless chicken thigh, cut into slices
1 can button mushroom, sliced
120 gm cabbage, sliced
3 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped
100 ml white wine
700 ml whipping cream*
150 ml water from boiling pasta
1 tsp salt
½ tsp coarse ground black pepper
Some chopped parsley


Method:

1. Melt butter, sauté garlic and chicken thigh for a minute. Add mushrooms, cabbage and fresh thyme, pour in white wine and cream.

2. Bring sauce to boil, thin out with water from boiling pasta. Season sauce with salt and pepper.

3. Add pasta and toss evenly for two minutes. Sprinkle on chopped parsley and serve immediately.

Notes:
* I substituted 200 ml of whipping cream with fresh milk. For those who likes it really creamy, no need for substitution. Ratio must at least be 70:30 for cream and milk.

Haha, cooking mum, I finally can tell you this is something I can make as good as yours and as well as the restaurants. Instead of chicken and cabbage, I put bacon and onion. My friends had same pasta in restaurant of 5 star hotel and said mine was nicer wow. Doesn't matter it's a compliment or an encouragement, I apprciated that anyway.

Hi Chumpman, you must share with me how you do your better than 5-star pasta. I am interested to try too.

Dear Hugbear


I would verify the white wine is not the chinese type rice wine right. And where you bought your thyme?

Hugbear said...

Dear Jocelyn, in western cooking they usually don't use Chinese wine. Use the drinking white wine to cook this dish. Either leftover drinking white wine or buy a cheap white wine also can.

Dear hugbear

Can i use red wine?

Hugbear said...

No, you cannot use red wine as this dish is a white sauce pasta dish.
