Chicken Carbonara — As Good As Ever!

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5 NIV

I haven’t been cooking lately … but I have been eating a bunch! This weekend we ate in a fabulous Italian restaurant and I ordered Chicken Carbonara which is one of my favorite dishes.  Last August I posted the recipe that will sweep you off your feet when it comes to carbonara sauce! I have to say that my carbonara recipe is every bit as good as the 5 star restaurant (for much less $$)  Start here …

Looking at this list of ingredients  — what’s not too like?  You can retrieve all the details and the recipe here.

  • 1 lb. spaghetti, plain or whole wheat
  • 4 oz. bacon, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and chunked or shredded (can use leftovers from roasted chicken)
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • ½ teaspoon basil
  • ½ teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 egg yokes
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, toasted

And I promise you will end up here:

When we finished our Chicken Carbonara at the restaurant I didn’t have any spare room for dessert.  However, if I had been home we might have enjoyed some homemade banana pudding that would look something like this!

So, while I am not cooking right now I hope you will enjoy some of my favorite recipes I have previously posted.  These both are keeper recipes.  Bookmark for later and let me know how you like it!

Many Blessings and Happy Cooking!
