Ingredients checklist

Speaking about ingredients, here’s all you need to cook this luxurious pasta tonight!

Ingredients checklist:

  • Chicken breast – I love to use chicken breast for this recipe, but boneless, skinless chicken thighs will work too!
  • Smoked bacon – you cannot skip it!!
  • Heavy cream – at least 25% fat so it won’t curdle.
  • Garlic and onion
  • Fresh parmesan cheese
  • Spices and herbs – I usually season this pasta just with salt and black pepper. But feel free to add a pinch of dried herbs such as rosemary, thyme, basil, or chili flakes for a little kick!
  • Olive oil and butter

If you feel like it, you can throw in some veggies. Think spinach, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, asparagus, broccoli. All of these combine perfectly! 🙂
