  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Once the water is boiling, stir in the fettuccini, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet, and cook the chicken breast halves over medium heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes per side. Pour the Italian dressing and balsamic vinegar over the chicken, add the mushrooms, and cook, covered, until the chicken is no longer pink inside. Remove the chicken breasts, and cut into strips.
  3. Stir the tomatoes, cream cheese, and basil together in the skillet with the mushrooms over medium-low heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Stir to melt the cream cheese into the sauce, add the chicken strips and the cooked fettuccini, and toss together. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.

We thought it was just okay. It was missing something and maybe garlic would help the flavor. The servings are generous, I'd say it serve 4.

This was really good, and quick too. The only thing I added was some garlic. We had it tonight, Hubby is still talking about it.

Quick, simple and inexpensive, not to mention delcious! We added a little extra cream cheese to thicken the sauce, and would suggest a little more pasta than what it is recommended.

This was outstanding. The only change I made was to add a little garlic.

This is so good. My boyfriend loved this. I did add garlic to the olive oil when I was browning the chicken. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
