Shiitake pasta!

Made this recipe on a whim.
I used Shiitake mushrooms instead of crimini since...well, I ALWAYS use crimini mushrooms.

Ingredients (for the chicken)
2 chicken thighs (or breasts!)
1/4 of an onion (minced)
2 tablespoons honey mustard (I didn't have an dijon, but same thing. Improvise)
a dash (or two) of worchester sauce
2 garlic cloves
salt and lemon pepper
1. let your chicken marinate for about 30 min.
2. cook your chicken (with the minced onions), cook it so its ALMOST done, but with a slight pink on the inside. (we're going to cook it again so that your chicken won't be overdone)
3. take the chicken out of the pan and set it aside.

Ingredients (for the sauce)
1 tablespoon of butter
1 cup of sliced shiitake mushrooms
1/2 cup of chicken stock
1/4 cup of cream
2 (or more) tablespoons of grated parmesan
a handful of chopping parsley
about 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
1. Using the same pan you used before, put the butter in the pan then add the mushrooms, let it brown a bit.
2. Then, add in the balsamic vinegar, cook for about 4-5 min.
3. add the cream, chicken stock, and the chicken you cooked prior.
4. Let it cook for about 15 min on medium high.
5. Lastly, add the parmesan and parsley, and voila tu es fini!

of course, I hope you guys all know how to make pasta...
