Chicken breast is often the go-to in pasta recipes, but chicken oysters are actually the perfect accompaniment to this rustic dish. These small cuts of dark meat are so tender and flavorful, adding a layer of savory complexity to the aromatic cream sauce, enlivened with fresh rosemary and bright citrus.

Serving Suggestion: Chicken Breasts or Thighs can be substituted for the Oysters.



  1. Cook penne according to package instructions, drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet on medium-high, heat olive oil. Add chicken oysters and saute for 3 minutes on each side. Drain excess fat from the pan, then return the chicken oysters to the heat.
  3. Add mushrooms and shallot to pan and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. When chicken and mushrooms are browned, add wine or stock and deglaze pan. Bring to a boil.
  4. Add cream, lemon zest, juice and rosemary, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon for about 8 to 10 minutes, until the sauce has thickened.
