Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Boneless and skinless chicken
  • 6 strips Bacon
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. Butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 cups Spinach
  • 4 pcs. Tomatoes small
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • cups Heavy cream
  • tsp. Paprika
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ¼ tsp. Red pepper flakes crushed

For the Pasta:

  • 10 oz. Penne Pasta
  • 2 tbsp. Parsley chopped

Instructions

  • The first step is to fry up the bacon. Add your bacon strips to the skillet and fry until crispy. Grab a plate, and cover with a paper towel, and place cooked bacon on top to dab off grease. Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces.
  • Dry your chicken with a paper towel, and season with a little salt, pepper and some garlic powder.
  • Heat some olive oil in a large skillet, and add your seasoned chicken breasts to the pan. Cook on a medium high heat for around 5 minutes, and turn to cook the other side. Total cooking time should be about 8-10 minutes, or until chicken is nicely browned.
  • Once cooked, remove chicken from the skillet and slice it up.
  • Add some butter to the skillet, and wait for it to melt. Throw in your chopped garlic and cook until fragrant for about 2 minutes.
  • Pour in your tomatoes, and cook for a further 3 minutes on a medium high heat until they begin to juice up. Then, add your fresh spinach and cook.
  • Turn the heat down a little, and season the ingredients in the skillet with Italian seasoning, paprika, salt and crushed red pepper.
  • Pour in the heavy cream, and stir in a little parmesan cheese slowly. Keep adding more and allowing the cheese to melt into the cream.
  • Bring a large pot of water to the boil and pour in your penne pasta. Cook the pasta in accordance with package directions and drain when done.
  • Add your sliced chicken, pasta and bacon together in the skillet and stir until fully coated in the sauce.
  • Once mixed, you can serve the dish up with a little parmesan cheese on top, parsley, and garnish with a few red pepper flakes.
