Chicken Carbonara Pasta

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!


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.
