Chicken Alfredo With Crispy Bacon (Paula Deen)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

A recipe that I thought sounded delicious from Paula Deen's Comfort Food Magazine. Posting for safe keeping. Update 10/17/2013: Made this for DH and myself, so I made 1/3 of the recipe, but still made 2 pieces of bacon (will even make more next time) and I added some additional heavy cream as we like it creamy. We loved the addition of the bacon, onion and garlic to the normal Chicken Alfredo, DH even went back for seconds.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon; cook until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towels to drain, reserving drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Brown chicken in drippings; add chicken broth. Cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove chicken; shred meat.
  3. Add onion and garlic to skillet; cook for 7 minutes over medium-high heat or until onion is tender. Add shredded chicken to skillet, and stir in cream; cook for 5 minutes or until thickened slightly. Remove from heat; add cheese and parsley, stirring until cheese melts.
  4. Tossed cooked fettuccini with chicken mixture. Add enough reserved cooking liquid to reach desired consistency. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and enjoy!

This was a great Chicken Alfredo! I used chicken thighs as we prefer the taste and sauteed some mushrooms with the onion as they needed to be used. All else was made as written. It's a keeper! Made for Culinary Quest 2014
