Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces fettuccine pasta
  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the fettuccine according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the diced bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set aside, leaving the bacon grease in the pan.
  3. Add the chicken pieces to the skillet with the bacon grease and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  5. Pour in the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Whisk in the grated Parmesan cheese until melted and smooth.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. Slowly pour the egg yolks into the skillet while continuously whisking to prevent scrambling.
  8. Add the cooked fettuccine, crispy bacon, and cooked chicken back into the skillet. Toss everything together until well coated in the sauce.
  9. Season
