Making chicken carbonara in less than 30 minutes isn't difficult. Making good chicken carbonara in less than 30 minutes-therein lies the challenge.
Why This Recipe Works
Browning the chicken breasts in bacon fat built a strong backbone of flavor for our Loaded Carbonara recipe. We had trouble chopping the bacon at first, but hardening it briefly in the freezer made it easier to work with. We tested a number of pasta varieties and found that any long-strand pasta worked equally well.
