5th Avenue!

I am so excited, because I think I may have found a very close recipe for the 5th Avenue chicken and pasta dish that was at La Boulangerie in Grenada! If you didn't ever try this dish while in Grenada, you should still try this recipe, because it is so easy and tasty! Here are the details-

- 1 jar 25 oz. of "Victoria's Vodka Sauce"
- Fresh sliced mushrooms (or you can use a can of sliced mushrooms too)
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Chicken (diced up)
- Penne Pasta (you can use any kind though)

Cut up the chicken and cook it in a pan with 1 tablespoons of olive oil until cooked through. Add the mushrooms and cook for a minute, then add the Vodka sauce and mix together and cook for about 10 more minutes. Cook pasta at the same time and then lay sauce mixture over pasta! So easy!!
