  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook farfalle at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and pour farfalle back into pot.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook chicken in the hot oil until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and slice into thin strips.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter into the same skillet; cook and stir onions in the melted butter until transparent, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir mushrooms and chicken strips into onions; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
  4. Heat 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet; stir flour into melted butter until dissolved, about 1 minute. Slowly whisk milk into flour mixture until smooth; add garlic, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil for 1 minute; reduce heat.
  5. Stir chicken mixture and garlic sauce into farfalle; cook and stir over medium-low heat until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

I seasoned my chicken with salt free poultry rub. Omitted mushrooms and re-used some pans but otherwise followed everything to the letter. Very decent dish...could do with a dash of sherry and a deglazing of wine in the pan after frying the chicken.

This was okay the first time I tried it. I had followed the recipe. But it was kind of watery and I couldn't really taste the garlic. The second time I pounded the chicken and seasoned it with salt, pepper, poultry seasoning and thyme. I increased the rue by 2 tbs and only uses 2 cups of milk. I all so used more garlic. And I added 2 tablespoons of Basil for color and flavor. And it was much better! I'd give it 4 stars with a little tweaking!

I followed this recipe to a "T" for the sauce portion. I personally found it kind of bland, I would experiment with other spices. However, my husband LOVED it as it was. I would make this again.

This was the best ever! I used spaghetti noodles instead. I also sprinkled bread crumbs on top and baked at 350 for 15 minutes. Yummy!

Sauce could use an additional herb or something but overall, not too shabby.

Having 6 children finding something they all like is nearly impossible!! But this recipe is one of the ones they all loved!! Great recipes will definitely be making it again!!

I followed another rater's thoughts and added more seasonings, and flatened out the chicken before cooking. I also only used 2 cups of milk, the rue consistency was perfect! I would still add even more seasonings; thyme, poultry seasoning, garlic, basil, salt, pepper to recipe next time around. My family of 5, with 3 being under 12, all loved it! That, in its' self, is a feat!

Good simple recipe. I made turkey meatballs and used Pennine instead of farfalle . Added fresh basil.
