Can I just say- Oh My Goodness!! This was a great easy meal. We both loved the bacon flavor of the sauce. I changed up the recipe I bit. I think if I would have followed the recipe as it was there would not have been enough sauce and it may have been a bit bland (so I added salt, pepper and garlic). The chicken was very juicy and tender. :)

Chicken with Creamy Bacon Penne
2 tbsps olive oil
2-4 skinless chicken breasts (I pounded them out)
4 oz smoked bacon, chopped
4 tbsps white wine (I used about 1/4 cup chicken stock)
4 oz frozen peas
5 tbsps double cream (I used about 10 tbsps)
2 cups cooked penne
3 cloves garlic, smashed
Salt & Pepper
1. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick frying pan, add the chicken breasts and scatter with bacon and garlic. Leave to cook over a high heat for 4 minutes.
2. Turn the chicken over in the pan, give the bacon a stir, then pour the wine/stock and let it bubble over a high heat until it has virtually evaporated. Now add the peas, cream and penne, season with S& P and stir well. Cover the pan and cook for 4 minutes more until the chicken is cooked through.
