Chicken Casino Pasta

Nor Mac


Everyone has heard of clam casino. I love any dish that contains bacon. I thought I would make a dish reminiscent of it. Instead of clams, I used chicken in this dish. I added some Italian herbs, white wine, and chicken stock. The crushed red pepper flakes give it a little kick. It is topped off with parmesan cheese. I hope you all enjoy my version of this dish.
