  • Cook macaroni as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet, reserving 1 Tbsp. drippings in pan. Drain bacon on paper towels. Add onions and garlic to reserved drippings; cook on medium-high heat 1 min. Add half the chicken; cook 2 min. or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining chicken; return all chicken to skillet.
  • Drain macaroni, reserving 3/4 cup of the cooking water. Mix reserved water with cream cheese and bouillon in small bowl until blended. Add to chicken with crumbled bacon; mix well. Cover; cook on low heat 5 min. or until chicken is done. Stir in macaroni and parsley; cook, uncovered, 1 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently. Stir in shredded cheese.

Serving Suggestion

Serve this creamy main-dish with a smart side such as steamed broccoli or a crisp mixed green salad.

For Saucier Pasta

If you prefer a thinner sauce, reserve 1 cup of the macaroni cooking water to mix with the cream cheese and bouillon.

How to Soften Cream Cheese

Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 sec. or just until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
