1 head roasted garlic, cloves removed
2 chicken breasts, boneless skinless
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1 pound bow tie pasta (aka farfalle), cooked and drained -but not rinsed
12 ounces center cut bacon, cut into strips
8 ounces crimini mushrooms, quartered
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, reserve the oil and chop roughly
3/4 cup white wine
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
If you haven’t cooked the pasta, cook it now according to the directions on the box.
Cut the chicken into 1″ cubes and season with kosher salt and black pepper.
To a cast iron skillet add the olive oil on high heat.
Cook the chicken until browned on both sides, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
Remove from the pan, reduce the heat to medium-high heat and add in the bacon.
Cook until crisp and remove the bacon (leave the fat).
Add in the mushrooms and onions and cook for 5-7 minutes until they start browning.
Remove the mushrooms and onions from the pan to where the chicken and bacon are.
Add in the sun dried tomatoes, white wine, and stir well, then let reduce by half, about 15 minutes.
Add in the heavy cream, roasted garlic, chicken and vegetables.
Add in most of the Parmesan cheese leaving just a garnishing amount.
Stir well, then add in the pasta and bacon and combine everything.
Garnish with remaining Parmesan cheese.
