Chicken Carbonara

A lovely quick, lite dish that the whole family will enjoy and keep coming back for more.

Ingredients

Method

  • 1.

    Put pasta on the boil and cook till al dente.

  • 2.

    While that is cooking prepare your bacon by cutting into strips.

  • 3.

    Cut chicken into medium size cubes.

  • 4.

    Fry together in pan until chicken is cooked and browned.

  • 5.

    Cut spring onions up however you like them and add to bacon and chicken turn the heat off and mix in.

  • 6.

    Prepare your sauce by putting cream in a bowl an adding cheese sauce, garlic and pepper and whisk, this will thicken quickly so have your milk on hand and add to make a velvet type consistency. (be sure not to make too runny).

  • 7.

    Drain your pasta but do not rinse, put back into same pot.

  • 8.

    Add bacon, chicken and spring onion.

  • 9.

    Mix and add the sauce, put on low heat to heat sauce through for about 2 mins stirring as you go. At this point if you find the sauce too thick add some more milk or if it is too thin add more parmesan later.

  • 10.

    Turn heat off and add half a pack of parmesan and stir and put lid on for 2 mins for cheese to melt a little and then it is ready to serve.

  • 11.

    Have rest of parmesan for people to put on top.
