This quick and easy chicken carbonara recipe with mushrooms is perfect for a weeknight meal!
As I was growing up in the South, my mom would make me chicken carbonara every Easter. She’d throw the egg pasta in a pan with some bacon, eggs, parmesan, and a little bit of heavy cream. The flavors went well together, but she never told me why it was called “chicken carbonara.” I didn’t care. I just knew it was delicious. “Chicken Carbonara with Mushrooms” is the name given to this meal. As before, you get the same great flavors but with an extra protein boost from mushrooms. Because of their high concentration of antioxidant chemicals, mushrooms are regarded as nutrient-dense foods.

This dish’s sauce would be delicious on meat or seafood. Serve it with rice or pasta. The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook inspired this dish. I love watching Barefoot Contessa shows on Food Network because they have a great sense of humor, and she does not preach. She always lets her viewers know they can use the recipes as a guideline, not the be-all and end-all of culinary expertise. Her motto is, “Eat well and often.” I understand how difficult it is to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle as a mother. This is a must-try recipe for you.
