Chicken Bacon Tomato Alfredo Skillet {One Pot}

One-Pot Chicken Bacon Tomato Alfredo Skillet - chicken, garlic, bacon, tomato sauce, chicken broth, cream, pasta and parmesan - everything cooks in the same pan, even the pasta! This is SO good. Better than any restaurant! LOVE!

Here is another one-pot, no boil recipe (loving these dishes). I really, really loved this dish. It tasted amazing! I loved the creamy tomato Alfredo sauce and the smoky flavor from the bacon. It was as good, if not better, than most pasta dishes I've eaten in restaurants. I am already planning on making this again. I can't stop thinking about it!

This dish only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. If you want to save time, you can substitute 2 cups of cooked, chopped chicken and skip cooking the chicken in the skillet. I love to use half a rotisserie chicken for this dish. I literally just dump everything in the skillet, cover and let it do its thing. Easy and delicious!

  5. Sounds wonderful!! I just recently saw your chili recipe and discovered from it the existence of Rotel Tomato Sauce (I just knew about the Rotel Tomatoes, not the sauce). Anyway, I bet this would be good with the Rotel Tomato sauce instead of the plain, if you wanted to give it a little bit of a kick!

  7. I really like one-pot meals, especially while on the road, and this looks like a good one.

  8. Sounds delicious, but I have a question. The pic looks more like an egg noodle than penne. Can I ask-did you use a regular semolina pasta? I usually use ones that are either whole wheat or fiber rich, and they require more cooking time than regular pasta. Just want to make sure the pasta I use gets cooked enough for my liking!

    2. I used fiber-rich pasta in this recipe but I did cook it halfway prior to adding it to the other ingredients. We loved this! I will make it again. Thanks!

  9. Just made this - I wasn't going to have time to cook tonight, so I went ahead and made it at lunchtime - I used the rotisserie chicken, and it really didn't take very long at all!! I had a "little" taste for my lunch, and oh my yes, it is yummy!!

  10. I don't have cream on hand, do you think milk would work?
