I've been making this pasta recipe since I was in high school. That means I have close to 8 years of practice perfecting it! When I'm looking for a recipe I know will be delicious, this is the go to. It's not too hard and doesn't have too many ingredients - and it has a good amount of leftovers...yum!


My Go-To Chicken Bacon Pasta

Serves 6


  • 1 large chicken breast, or 2 thin

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chicken seasoning

  • 5 slices bacon, cut into pieces

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 3/4 cup chicken broth

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup parmesan, shaved or shredded

  • 12 oz pasta

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Begin by cutting your chicken into 1 inch cubes. Toss with 1 to 2 tablespoons of chicken seasoning. Set aside.

  2. Add water to a large pot and salt generously. Place on stove and bring to a boil.

  3. Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat and add your bacon. Once cooked, remove to a paper towel lined plate and set aside. Reserve 1 tablespoon bacon grease, and discard the rest.

  4. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in already greased skillet, add your chicken and cook until browned on each side. Once chicken is browned, add in your onion and garlic, continue to cook until onions are transparent.

  5. Pour your chicken broth into the chicken/onion skillet and let simmer for 5 minutes, or until broth is reduced to half.

  6. In the meantime, add your pasta to your boiling water and continue to cook as directed on package.

  7. When your broth has reduced, add in the heavy cream and let simmer for a minute or two until heated through.

  8. Drain the pasta and add into your skillet, along with bacon and parmesan cheese. Use a tongs to toss and coat all noodles with the sauce and toppings.

  9. Serve hot with some garlic bread!
