Ready In:
1hr 30mins




  • Marinate chicken with minced garlic, salt, pepper and liquid smoke for about an hour or two in the fridge.
  • Melt 3 Tbs.
  • of butter in frying pan and add your marinated chicken and cook until done.
  • Set aside in a dish.
  • Melt 2 Tbs.
  • butter in the same frying pan and add in the onions and cook until halfway done.
  • Add in your mushrooms next and cook the liquid out of them.
  • When the mushrooms are halfway done add in your red bellpepper.
  • Set this mixture aside in a bowl.
  • Fry your bacon until done.
  • Drain on a paper towel.
  • Meanwhile, boil your noodles in salted water.
  • Remove the drippings from the pan but do not wipe it clean.
  • Pour both jars of the alfredo sauce and add a little water.
  • I normally add it to the jar and swish it around to get the rest of the sauce from the jar.
  • Once sauce starts to simmer pour all of your veggies from the bowl into the sauce and add in your chicken.
  • Stir well.
  • Let simmer for about 10- 15 minutes or until chicken is heated to desire temperature.
  • Drain your noodles and add your sauce together or pour your sauce on top of your noodles.
  • Whichever you prefer or is easier for you!
  • Enjoy!

    You could prepare this without the added butter or margarine. Just fry your bacon up and use the drippings to cook your onions, mushrooms and bell pepper. Carbonara is fattening enough as it is....

    There are not enough stars to describe how delicious this was. IT Says 4-6 servings but we got 8+ servings (enough to freeze for later!). Wonderful bacon taste... creamy sauce. Its going in our recipe book!


My name is Jeanette and I was born and raised in Houston, Texas! I came across this website one day while doing a search on the computer for a really good salisbury steak recipe (which came out great...thanks to recipe# 23811) Since then, I make it a daily routine to log into Recipezaar at least 2 or 3 times a day. I feel like I've viewed every recipe in here but to my amazement I always find myself printing a recipe that I must have overlooked. My Recipezaar collection of recipes has gotten so big that I had to make a special binder just to keep track of all the new recipes that I have printed out. I love trying out new recipes on my husband and to tell you the truth he doesn't mind at all...what a good husband! For a while there it felt like I was cooking the same thing over and over each week. Not anymore though...thanks to all of you and Recipezaar :)
