Chicken Carbonara … YUMMMM!

22 Oct

You know those days where you have one major thing to do and it takes all day to do it? That’s today for me! I am making dinner for my family (B and E) and B’s parents (Nana and Dodo and possible his brother and brother’s wife Uncle J and Aunt S). Of course there’s only so much I can do because B is going to be grilling up the chicken but I thought I would share the recipe with you all.

Chicken Carbonara .. YUUUUMMM. I totally stole this recipe from my mom (Thanks Momma D!) and she apparently stole it from Kraft 😉

Ingredients:

1/2 lb of fettuccine pasta (or whatever pasta you like insert here)

4 slices of bacon chopped

4 oz of philadelphia cream cheese cubed

1 cup of grated parmesan cheese (it calls for 1/2 but we loooove our cheese)

1 cup of milk or half n half (we use half n half)

1 cup of frozen peas (or forget the peas please is what B says)

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder or garlic salt (your preference here but we use salt)

As you can see Momma D changes things up.. but we love it!

Before you do anything! Get that chicken out of the freezer and drowned it in italian dressing for about an hour or so. For four pieces we usually use a half of a regular bottle of italian dressing or more.

Cook the pasta as directed on the package while cooking bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon with slotted spoon to paper towels (or leave it in and enjoy the fatness like us!) Add remaining ingredients (cubed cream cheese until melted as much as possible, then milk, then peas or no peas, and garlic powder) Cook on low heat in skilled until mixture is well blended and heated through.

Drain pasta and place in a large bowl and add mixture (or after draining the pasta put it in the pan with the goods and mix it up so you can see if you  need more cheese or milk depending on if you like things creamy or cheeesssyyy!)

While I am doing this B grills the chicken so it’s hot and fresh! You can slice up the chicken and put it in the pasta or keep it separate. Either way it’s FANTABULOUS!

Enjoy!

(If you love garlic bread, this is the perfect meal if you want it.)

Okay totally off subject but I wanted to Thank all my 50 viewers yesterday! That is the highest views I have ever gotten! EVER! Love you all 🙂

Plus I added a new page up front .. look up there to the top left! It’s the contact me page. It has my email so you can personally right to me and chat it up about whatever it is you want or you can check out my new esty.com page! If you don’t know what etsy is it’s basically amazon.com but for homemade items. Totally cool!

Stay tuned for crafting fun this weekend 😀

Love Always,

J
