It all cooks right in the skillet so that you only have one pan to cook in and one pan to clean. And if you are anything like me, that in itself is a blessing!

To make it, I dice my bacon and onion and cook them until the bacon is crisp and the onion is tender, about 3 minutes or so. Then, remove to a plate and add the seasoned chicken to the skillet and brown both sides. That usually takes about 3 to 5 minutes per side.

Once browned, remove the chicken to the plate with the bacon and onion and slowly stir the¬†half and half in the skillet. Add your pasta and stir to make sure it doesn’t stick. Then, nestle your chicken back into the pasta in the skillet, top with spinach, cover the skillet and cook until the pasta is tender and the chicken has cooked through, about 15 minutes. Finally,¬†add the bacon back to the skillet and grate Parmesan cheese over top of the chicken and pasta and serve.

 

It is a weeknight wonder!
