  1. Smoky Chicken Pasta

    July 11, 2014 by AmazinglyWonderful

    8 oz. Farfalle pasta
    1 – 1 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream (I used half & half and 1 Tbsp of flour)
    2 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 tsp pepper
    1/2 tsp basil
    1/2 c. butter (I used 3 Tbsp)
    1/2 lb. bacon, crumpled
    1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
    1/2 bottle (12 oz) Lawry’s mesquite marinade with lime juice

    Put chicken and marinade in the crock pot on low for 6 hours. Pull marinated chicken out of the juices, allow to cool a little bit, and shred. Set this aside. About a half-hour before serving, boil the pasta. In a small saucepan, melt butter (and flour), add garlic, whipping cream, basil, pepper, parmesan cheese, and crumpled bacon. Whisk together on low heat for 5-6 minutes. In a large bowl, pour over cooked, drained pasta, add chicken and stir through. Sprinkle a little bit more shredded parmesan cheese on top.
