Ingredients

  • 8 strips bacon, chopped and trimmed of all fat
  • 2 large chicken breasts, diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 1/2 cups milk (full fat or 2%) -- you can also use half and half
  • 500 g | 1 pound dry fettuccine pasta
  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets, stem removed
  • 1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Fry the bacon in a large saucepan or pot over medium-high heat until crispy.
  • Add the chicken and sauté until cooked through. Add the garlic and fry until fragrant (about 2 minutes). Season with, salt and pepper.
  • Pour in the milk, stir, and bring the milk to a gentle simmer. Reduce heat immediately and add the pasta.
  • Stir occasionally for 5-6 minutes, or until the pasta just begins to bend and soften. Add in the broccoli, stir and cover with a lid. Continue to cook, while stirring occasionally, until the pasta is cooked and al dente (about another 7 minutes).
  • Stir through the Parmesan cheese and mix until the cheese has melted through the sauce. The sauce will continue to thicken if not served immediately. Add more milk if needed.
  • Serve with extra pepper and parmesan cheese, if desired.

Notes

Be careful not to rapidly boil the milk as it will curdle. Bring to a gentle simmer, reduce heat and add the pasta immediately to prevent curdling.
