Creamy pasta with chicken and mushrooms

Very good creamy pasta that is suitable for Friday night. This dish is also child-friendly as I use leeks instead of regular onions.

Fry chicken, mushrooms and onions, add cream, wine and chicken broth.
Cook pasta according to the instructions on the package.
Salt and pepper and the dish is ready!

It is important to always use some pasta water in the sauce as the starch from the pasta makes the sauce thicker.
