Creamy Chicken & Bacon Pasta

Sometimes we just need to indulge a little, right? Last week, Annie had her third set of injections and lets just say the following few days weren’t great. Little to no sleep, a grumpy baby and a tired mum created a few days of chaos so the healthy eating was set to the side for a couple of days. I made this tasty creamy chicken and bacon pasta dish one night for Carl coming home & it really hit the spot. Sometimes you just need carbs and fat.

Ingredients:

2 tsp butter

6-8 bacon rashers

1x250g chicken breat

2 garlic cloves (crushed)

280ml single cream

3/4 cup pasta cooking water

1/4 cup parmesan (grated)

pasta of your choice (I used penne)

Method

  1. Put your pasta on to boil following the instructions on the packet.
  2. Fry the bacon in 1tsp of butter until crispy, then add the chicken and fry until lightly golden.
  3. Add in the crushed garlic, followed by the cream and let it simmer.
  4. Add in the pasta cooking water and continue to let it simmer.
  5. Drain the pasta. Add the parmesan to the mixture followed by the pasta and stir well.

Enjoy! If you put on half a stone eating this don’t blame me!
