Dice chicken into bite-sized pieces. In a large skillet over medium high heat, saute the shallots and garlic in butter briefly then add diced chicken, season with salt and pepper to taste, and brown evenly. Add mushrooms and continue to saute for another few minutes until mushrooms are soft.
This is a good time to start your pasta.
Add white wine to the chicken and veggies and simmer with no cover to cook the chicken and reduce liquid volume to your desired consistency (again to taste here, but lean toward reducing the liquid a good bit since adding the creme fraiche will increase liquid volume). Finally add the creme fraiche and continue heating until warm throughout. If at the end consistency needs thickening, a small amount of corn starch (dissolved in a couple tablespoons cold water) can be added.
Serve over pasta and top with Parmesan
