The Creamy BLT Chicken

One pot meals are magical. Personally I don’t like to make a big mess with dishes or stand in the kitchen too long. It’s days i love being in the kitchen all day but sometimes I need a one and done meal!

My boo came into town and cooked me this meal. I got on his nerves hovering over him and trying to tell him what to do lol! So I ran off with the recipe and tweaked it.

This skillet meal is so good! Bacon is involved and bacon grease! Cooking chicken or veggies in bacon grease is so magical. It steps up the flavors in so many ways! The fresh components of the spinach, onions and tomatoes. The fatty components of the bacon and heavy cream balances it out. Oh! Plus this meal makes for leftovers. Who doesn’t love good leftovers!?

I like to call this pasta meal The Creamy BLT Chicken. Enjoy!

*I like buying pre-diced tomato and onions for this recipe. Makes it hassle free. Less dishes to wash!
**I cut my bacon and chicken with kitchen shears. So simple and affective.
***I reserve some of the pasta water just in case my pasta sauce gets too thick.
****This meal is freezer friendly. Don’t add your cheese yet, if you want to freeze this meal.
