  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the spaghetti for 9-11 mins until al dente. Meanwhile, melt 2 tbsp butter and the oil in a large nonstick pan over a medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, stir well to coat in the butter and cook for 5 mins, without stirring. Add the garlic, stir well and cook for a further 2-3 mins until golden brown and crispy on the edges.
  2. Transfer to a plate and add the remaining butter to the pan. Toss the chicken in the flour, then add to the pan and fry for 5 mins until cooked through and golden.
  3. Drain the spaghetti. Add to the pan along with the mushrooms. Season with pepper, toss well to combine, then serve scattered with parsley.
