Recipe: Egg Noodles with Chicken and Mushrooms in Cream Sauce

Why are egg noodles and cream sauce such a delicious pair? The answer is simple. Egg noodles are great at soaking up sauces, so the richness of the sauce gets distributed throughout the dish. I don’t think I need to sell you on chicken and mushrooms, so I see no reason why you shouldn’t add this dish to your meal plan. Any objections? Ok, good.
