One-Pot Cream of Mushroom

Quick and Easy Chicken Pasta Dinner

One-pot Cream of mushroom chicken spaghetti...this may sound like a typical easy to make chicken pasta dinner with a little bit of store bought help.

But it has a very special place in my heart.  Why?  My mom has been making this Hong Kong spaghetti dish since 1980s.  I remember this recipe well since I was a kid.

One-Pot Cream of Mushroom Chicken Spaghetti

Bringing up in a traditional Chinese family, rice and traditional dishes are dominant in our lives.  Even though my mom cooked every day and is a very creative cook, cooking something like spaghetti or any western style dishes was not common, especially with my father demanding authentic Chinese dishes all time.

But mom knows us very well.  My birthday always fell during the time of final exam at school every year.  Mom would make sure I had this dish in addition to my other favorite food.

I was making this mom's one-pot cream of mushroom chicken spaghetti the other day.  From the start of making it to the last bite, I enjoyed every moment and it felt like home.  It brought back so many sweet memories of mom.  I hope you can feel the love when you enjoy this dish.
