Chicken Carbonara

You have to love a child that says as you're filling your dinner plate, "Wait, Mama, don't you want to take a picture for your blog?" Thank You, Katie!! :)

Chicken Carbonara

2 pkgs. Uncle Ben’s garlic & butter rice
10 oz. bacon, 1 inch sliced
1 lb. chicken breast, boneless, skinless, sliced
1 t. garlic, minced
1 C heavy cream
1 C frozen petite peas, thawed, drained
2 oz. parmesan cheese, shaved
3 green onion, thinly sliced

Cook rice to pkg. directions. Cook bacon until crisp; drain off all but 2 T. of drippings. Season chicken with salt and pepper as desired. Add chicken, sauté until seared on all sides. Add garlic and cream; simmer until it begins to thicken. Add peas, continue to cook until peas are heated through. Stir in enough cheese to thicken to sauce consistency. Serve over rice; garnish with onion; top with cheese, if desired.
