Chicken Carbonara is one of those recipes that you can cook at a moment’s notice. You probably have everything you need for in your pantry, and it is a stunningly simple dish.
Bryan and I had friends over a few nights ago, and I made us a huge bowl of Pasta Carbonara (but without the pork to accommodate for our friends’ dietary restrictions).
I really like this recipe because it’s no-nonsense, and if you get through it, it’s a really impressive dish.
I thought it was much harder to make than it was. When I learned how easy it was, I didn’t stop making it for a few weeks.
Check out the recipe below, and let me know what you think!
Are there any additions you like to make to your chicken carbonara?
I’ve seen people use cream in the sauce, but I don’t think it’s needed.
The starchy water does enough to make everything stay creamy without the extra dairy.
