Chicken and Bacon Fettucine Carbonara is a simple Italian family dinner that is ready in under 30 minutes. The sauce is creamy and satisfying!
While the water boils, cut the bacon into pieces and add it to a large skillet. Cook the bacon over medium-high heat until it gets crispy, about 5-8 minutes.
When the water boils, salt the water with 3 tablespoons of salt. Add the pasta to the large pot of salted water and cook 2-3 minutes less than the package directions.
Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and add it to the pan with the bacon grease. Chop the garlic and add it to the chicken. Cook for 5-8 minutes until the chicken gets brown.
In a small bowl, crack the 4 eggs and 1 egg yolk into the bowl and mix well.
Add the cheese and black pepper to the bowl. Take a ladle of the water the pasta is cooking in and add it to the mixture, slowly mixing while you pour.
Add the pasta directly into the pan with the chicken. Turn the heat off and add the egg and cheese mixture. Toss with tongs and mix. Add the crispy bacon and peas to the pot and continue to stir until combined.
