Bacon Chicken Alfredo Recipe

Bacon Chicken Alfredo Recipe

"I had a rich pasta dish similar to this at a restaurant," recalls Dana Simmons of Lancaster, Ohio. " It was so unique that i tried to duplicate it at home a few days later. This is remarkably close, but not as fussy because it uses ready-made ingredients rather than being made from scratch."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Cook: 10 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) fettuccine
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 1-1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) prepared Alfredo sauce
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 3 tablespoons drippings.
  • 2. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken in the drippings over medium-high heat until meat is no longer pink.
  • 3. Drain fettuccine; stir into a skillet. Add the Alfredo sauce, spinach, Italian seasoning and bacon. Cook and stir until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 6-8 servings.
