Ingredients

  • 5 slices of no-nitrite bacon chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds of thin-sliced chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup of grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 3 cloves of garlic sliced
  • 5 ounces of baby spinach
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 8 ounces of mushrooms sliced

Instructions

  • Cook bacon. Drain, and set aside on a plate with a paper towel.
  • Meanwhile, cover and pound chicken breasts with a meat tenderizer. Then season chicken with salt. Add the chicken with 1 clove of the garlic and brown chicken in the bacon grease about 3-4 minutes on each side. Turn off the flame. Remove chicken to a bowl, cover and set aside.
  • Then sauté the spinach on low for about 1 minute, drain, and set aside in the bowl with the chicken.
  • Wipe the skillet clean so it will be ready for your mushrooms.
  • Add butter to the skillet and cook your mushrooms, tossing them with a wooden spoon until they're brown about 5 minutes. Then add the remaining 2 cloves of garlic and cook for one more minute. Then season with salt and set aside with the chicken.
  • For Chicken Alfredo Sauce: Wipe the skillet clean again so it will be ready for cooking your sauce.
  • Now add cream to the pan and bring it to a low boil for a few minutes. Then add cheese and stir. Finally, toss bacon, chicken, mushrooms, and spinach back into the skillet.
  • Serve warm and enjoy.
