Slowly add butter until completely incorporated. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and keep warm. To make chicken and pasta: Cook pasta and drain. Heat a small amount of oil and two tablespoons butter in a large skillet. Dredge chicken in flour and saute in pan, turning once, until brown and cooked through. Remove chicken from pan. Add remaining ingredients to pan. Heat until mushrooms soften and are cooked. Add chicken back to pan. To serve: Place cooked pasta on each plate. Add half of butter sauce to chicken mixture and toss. Taste and adjust. Add more sauce if needed. Place chicken mixture over pasta. Add a little more sauce to each. Garnish with parsley.
