Chicken, Bacon and Tomato Pasta

    35 min

    Exactly six ingredients come together to make a deliciously simple chicken pasta dish. Radiatore pasta is wonderful here, but any small pasta shape works a treat. Add dried crushed chillies if you fancy a bit of heat.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 (500g) packet radiatore pasta
    • 225g bacon
    • 4 skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into bite-sized pieces
    • 180ml white wine
    • 2 large tomatoes, cut into bite size pieces
    • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Boil the pasta for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
    2. Place bacon in a large, deep frying pan. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Set bacon aside to drain on kitchen paper.
    3. Drain all but 1 tablespoon bacon dripping, then saute chicken until no longer pink, and juices run clear. Break bacon into pieces, and return to frying pan. Stir in wine and tomatoes. Sprinkle with Italian hebs. Simmer until tomatoes are cooked, about 20 minutes. Toss cooked pasta with sauce, and serve.

    I really enjoyed this, it was very simple but tasty. I added a little lemon juice and didn't cook the chicken for the full length of time as I didn't want to dry it out  -  04 Oct 2013


    This was great. Though I did not use wine, I used a can of tomatoes.  -  14 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My Husband and I really loved it! I have already past the recipe onto my brother, sister and my mom! I did make a few changes that people had suggested though. I add fresh minced garlic while cooking my chicken and use red wine vinager in the place of the white wine. Some additional italin seasoning and crushed red pepper seeds added into the sauce and it was Wonderful!!! I was a little worried but I Really liked it!  -  01 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
