Chicken ala Peroom
- large saute pan
- large pot
- sharp chef's knife
- 1 pound chicken thighs boneless skinless
- 1 pound sliced mushrooms
- 1 cup sweet peas fresh, or frozen
- 1 tablespoon truffle oil
- 4 tablespoons salted butter divided
- 1 pound linguine (or 'pasta' of choice; zoodles would be awesome!)
- 2 leaves fennel bulb minced
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
For the seasoning
- 1 teaspoon each sumac powder and cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon truffle powder
- 1/2 teaspoon celery salt/flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pink peppercorns
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- To make the seasoning, combine spices in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper, to taste. In a gallon size Ziploc bag (or large lidded bowl), add chicken, truffle oil and spice mixture, shaking to coat thoroughly.
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Chop chicken into chunks.
- Throw in 1 carton sliced mushrooms and saute until cooked through. Set aside and keep warm.
- In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; adding 1 cup frozen peas in the last 3 minutes of cooking; drain well.
- Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the skillet. Add fennel bulb, and cook, stirring frequently, until soft and translucent, about 4 minutes. Gradually whisk in half and half until slightly thickened, about 4-5 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- In pan with sauce, add pasta, and chicken; then gently toss to combine.
- Serve immediately with chicken, garnished with parmesan cheese and parsley, if desired.
