Although we know that the original carbonara sauce is made only with egg yolk, over the years variants have appeared that include milk cream as the main ingredient. In RecetasGratis we want to propose a different carbonara sauce: with mushrooms. This sauce can be prepared in two ways, crushing the mushrooms and mixing them with the milk cream or cutting them into sheets, skipping them and adding the milk cream. In this way, we could say that the recipe we share is also a chicken dish in mushroom sauce, however, as we have also incorporated bacon, another of the typical ingredients of carbonara sauce, this name is much more appropriate. Keep reading and discover with us how to make chicken a la carbonara with mushrooms.

Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
The first thing we are going to do is grind the washed and chopped mushrooms, reserving two for later. We do this because we have opted for the first option, but remember that you can also skip this step and cook them sauteed.
Trick: It is not necessary to cook the mushrooms before grinding them.
Chop the leek and sauté it over medium heat in a frying pan with a stream of hot olive oil. If you prefer, instead of leek you can use white onion to prepare the chicken a la carbonara with mushrooms.
Add the two rolled mushrooms that we reserve, remove and, immediately, we incorporate the chicken cut into cubes or strips.
Sauté the chicken with mushrooms and, when almost done, add the bacon also cut into strips or cubes, as you like. We continue cooking the chicken carbonara with mushrooms and season to taste.
We incorporate the crushed mushrooms, we mix and cook everything together.
We add the milk cream and we continue cooking. To give the final touch to chicken breasts in the carbonara with mushrooms, you can add a handful of grated cheese, preferably Parmesan.
When the sauce is ready and the meat to our liking, we serve immediately to enjoy this hot dish. We can accompany the chicken carbonara with mushrooms recipe with a good salad, like a caprese salad or an avocado salad. And, of course, don't miss the bread! What did you think of the recipe?
