Easy Chicken Carbonara
Be ready to field requests because once you make this delicious pasta, your family will ask for it again and again! Bacon lovers will adore the flavour of the super simple sauce. Basil adds a hit of freshness, but if you don’t have it on hand, this weeknight winner is just as tasty without it. This restaurant-inspired dish couldn’t be easier to put together and uses mostly pantry staples you already have on hand!
- Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain, return to pot and keep warm.
- Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tsp (10 mL) of the oil over medium heat; cook chicken, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until light golden. Remove to plate.
- Heat remaining 2 tsp (10 mL) oil in pan; cook mushrooms, onion, and garlic, 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in soup and milk. Bring to simmer. Return chicken to the pan. Reduce heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
- Pour sauce mixture over spaghetti, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with cheese and basil (optional).
- Substitute your familys favourite pasta for the spaghetti.
- For a budget savings, use boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of breasts and drain off any excess fat after removing the cooked chicken from the pan.
- Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper, to taste, if desired.
