Classic Chicken Carbonara recipe combines savoury bacon pieces with a rich, creamy sauce made with CAMPBELL'S® Condensed Low Fat Cream of Mushroom Soup.



  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon 8-10 minutes, stirring often, or until crisp. Transfer bacon to paper towel lined plate to remove excess fat. Remove all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) bacon fat from the pan.
  2. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic, sauté 3-5 minutes or until soft. Add chicken. Cook 3-5 minutes, stirring often, or until no pink remains on the chicken. Stir in soup, milk and thyme. 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
