Creamy Chicken And Bacon Pasta

Cheesy Garlic Cream Cheese sauce, Bacon, Chicken and more - this is the ultimate comfort food !

If you are looking for a scrumptious, cheesy comforting dinner recipe, this Creamy Chicken and Bacon Pasta is just what you need.

This dish has it all - Chicken, Bacon and Ham is always a delicious combination and when paired up with a rich cheesy, Cream Cheese sauce you have the ultimate comfort food.

Look at that ! Don't you just want to dig in ? I do not serve the Pasta with any sides as this is so rich, but if you want to stretch the portions to maybe 8 servings, a crunchy side salad would be perfect.

I normally cook the Chicken much earlier, sometimes even the night before, in order for the Chicken to cool completely which makes it easier to cut into cubes, but when I cook everything at the same time, the warm Chicken shreds more than cube, if you know what I mean ?


No matter whether it is shredded or cubed, the taste is the same. The Bacon, Pasta and the Sauce can be done at the same time and if your Chicken is already cooked, this meal can be ready to serve in under 20 minutes.
