Chock Full Of Chicken And Spices This Hearty Carbonara Is Way Better Than Any Restaurant Version

Chicken carbonara is surprisingly easy to make.  This recipe shows you how to make the sauce, and although it is completely delicious, I will admit, there have been times where I am in a rush, so I just get a can of pink sauce and go to town.

It is easy and still totally delicious when you add in all the other ingredients.  Do not feel bad about that, we all are busy and have all skipped a step or two to make our lives easier.

Check out what our friends over at Busy Creating Memories had to say about this:

“Now serve hot and listen to the “Hmmm’s and Ahhh’s”. Or if your family is like mine, it will be dead silent as everyone digs in!”

This right here is how it was in my house, too.  Complete silence throughout the meal as they devoured this amazing dish.
