Chicken Carbonara

"This had a good flavor, but it should be served with a salad or some other vegetable. This is the recipe as I made it. The changes that I would make in the future: double the sauce, double the chicken, increase the bacon fat to 1 tbsp. Note: You can probably start with raw chicken and just cook it longer."
