Bring to simmer. Return bacon to the pan. Reduce heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Remove from heat.Stir through parsley.Serve over cooked spaghetti topped with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Recipe tips

  • For a fresh twist on this classic dish, try adding baby spinach while the sauce simmers.
  • To maintain creaminess, heat leftovers with a splash of milk.
  • Feel free to season with salt and black pepper to taste.

    This was easy & my family likes it very much. The bacon makes it a bit salty but all in all very good
