I had 3 chicken breasts defrosted for supper and was planning on making chicken and rice. My hubby is not a big fan of that dish and asked me to make something else. I was limited on supplies, and looked thru my frig and pantry and came up with this wonderful dish! Everything is all I had of it on hand, so it worked out great! He and my daughter loved it!
Cook diced bacon in a big heavy bottomed skillet till crispy.
While bacon is cooking, start pasta, dice onion, and chop chicken.
When bacon is crispy, remove from skillet with a slotted spoon and keep warm on plate. Add chopped chicken to bacon drippings and cook till done and starting to brown.
Remove chicken from pan, with slotted spoon, add to plate with bacon to keep warm. Add diced onions to pan and cook till translucent and tender.
Return bacon and chicken to pan with onions, add soup, 1/2 can pasta water and bouillon cube and cheese, stirring to combine. Add pasta, garlic powder,parsley and salt and pepper to taste. If to thick can add additional pasta water. Cook until everything is heated through.
