Special Equipment Needed

Serving Suggestion

Serve this main dish with a mixed green salad for a quick-and-tasty weekday meal.

How to Check Chicken For Doneness

Always use a thermometer to see if chicken is cooked through. The internal temperature should register at least 165ºF. When the chicken is completely cooked, the juices should run clear.

Preparing Perfect Pasta

Follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.

Chopping Bacon

For best results, chop bacon when it is either very cold or partially frozen.
