Chicken Carbonara Recipe

Chicken Carbonara
It’s been a while since I had some Italian food and Chicken Carbonara sounded great, and indeed it was. If you are not familiar with chicken carbonara is it basically a type of chicken spaghetti. Pasta noodles, with chicken and bacon in a delicious parmesan sauce. Now does that sound good or what? When I first looked at the recipe I thought it was going to take a long time but surprisingly everything went smoothly and I had it on the table pretty quick. The only other thing I added to the recipe was peas, but mushrooms and onions would be a great addition as well. Now the recipe does call for raw eggs in the sauce so what you are going to want to do is mix the sauce in the piping hot noodles right after you drain them. This will kill any bacteria. Serving with garlic bread is a must. Enjoy.

Scale
  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into bite size pieces)
  • ½ lb bacon
  • 12 ounces spaghetti noodles
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¼ cup chicken broth

This sounds like a great recipe. Just one question, can I use white whine vinegar unsteady of the actual whine?

No, sorry white wine vinegar will not work in this recipe in place of wine, the flavor will not be right. If you do not want to use wine, you could just leave it out. I hope this helps.

Stephanie- I have never tried making this without the chicken broth and wine mixture. I am not exactly sure if it helps make the sauce creamier. You could try leaving it out but I do not know what the results will be. Keep in mind that it is probably not going to make as much sauce without it though.

Is the chicken broth and white wine mixture required? Does it just help make the sauce creamier?

Elizabeth - Yes, that is correct, the egg mitxure is poured into the hot noodles raw. If you are worried about the raw egg, you could try heating the egg mixture in the pan. However, I have not tried this and I do not know what the results will be.

I just want to confirm that the egg mixture is poured over the hot noodles raw and the eggs are not cooked in any way? I am concerned if this is a safe meal to serve, especially for my granddaughter. PLease let me know if I am missing a step or not reading the recipe correctly.
