Creamy Chicken BLT Pasta



     Saw a recipe pop up on my facebook newsfeed and thought, I can make this.... Chicken, bacon, pasta, cream sauce, tomatoes, spinach, what better quick and easy meal. I decided to turn this dish into my own. So here goes. Chicken BLT Pasta.


  • Ziti pasta
  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 strips bacon
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Large handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Fresh Parmesan
  • Fresh Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt/pepper

1. In a large skillet over medium high heat brown the bacon until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towel.

2. In same skillet brown the chicken breasts on both sides. Remove and set aside to cool before dicing up.

3. Toss in the garlic and saute until fragrant. Toss in tomatoes and spinach and saute until spinach has wilted and tomatoes begin to burst a bit.

4. Pour in the white wine and simmer until reduced by half. Pour in the cream and stir to incorporate.

5. Chop up the bacon and chicken and bring to a slow boil. Grade in the cheeses and mix. Cover and simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.

6. Cook pasta according to box. Mix into the sauce and serve.



This pasta was delicious. Full of flavor and perfect just like a good BLT sandwich. Enjoy!
