How to Make It
In a large bowl, mix the eggs, cream, Parmesan, parsley, salt and the olive oil in a bowl and set aside.
Next in a large frying pan, fry the bacon until just crisp, then crumble and set aside as well.
With 1 -2 Tbsp. bacon grease, saute the onion in the grease until the onions are translucent and golden, then add the cooked chicken pieces in and stir to coat.
Drain the pasta and while still hot, add to the onion-chicken mixture and mix well.
Pour the egg/cream sauce into the pasta, and stir over low heat for one to two minutes until fully incorporated.
remove from heat and fold in the bacon, reserving some to sprinkle on top before serving.

Carbonara is a favorite, but never tried it with chicken. Anyone that hasn’t made Carbonara before, make sure not to overcook after adding the egg/cream sauce to the pasta. Follow recipfresh’s recipe;-D
