chicken carbonara

I've been on a little cooking kick lately, and we had this last week and it was SO good! I got this recipe from my dad - he used to cook it all the time when I was growing up. It's super easy!

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 green bell pepper (diced)
  • 8 oz thin spaghetti
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • half package turkey bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • thyme leaves (to taste)
  • parsley (to taste)
  • salt & pepper
Slice chicken breasts into 1/2 inch strips. Boil water and begin cooking spaghetti. Cook chicken and green bell pepper in skillet for 8-10 minutes (stirring frequently).  To chicken in skillet add cream, parmesan, bacon bits, thyme, salt & pepper. Reduce heat to low. Cook 1-2 minutes until heated through. Remove from heat and pour chicken mixture over spaghetti in saucepan, toss. Sprinkle with parmesan and enjoy!

This looks so yummy! One of my favorite restaurants in NYC, Pastis, used to have this on the menu and I always ordered it, but they took it of...however, now with your recipe I can make it myself! Lovely blog!
