Today I ran across this recipe online. It sounded so yummy that I had to try it out. I did modify it just a little bit, or course! We had it for dinner tonight and DH says it's a keeper!
CHICKEN CARBONARA PASTA
2 boneless chicken breasts
4 slices, thick sliced bacon
½ cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
7 oz. thin spaghetti, cooked and drained
8 oz. heavy cream
Brown chicken breasts well on both sides in a small amount of olive oil. Lower heat and cook until done. Cut into bite sized pieces.
Chop bacon into ½” pieces and cook until crispy. Remove from pan and drain.
Saute onion and garlic in about 1 T. bacon grease for 2-3 minutes, or until onion is tender.
Add cooked spaghetti to onions and garlic. Stir in cheese and cream. Heat thoroughly. Add bacon and mix well.
