Angel Hair w/ Roasted Chicken & Bacon
Having guests over is sometimes cause for mild panic attacks for hosts. The idea of trying to impress guests with your fabulous (and impeccably clean) home, and your outstanding sense of great food can be a lot of work and money. This recipe is a quick meal yet doesn't lack in flavor, style and pizzaz. It only calls for a few simple ingredients, and one of my favorite go-to's…store bought organic rotisserie chicken!
TIP: TO MAKE COOKING BAKING LESS MESSY, BAKE IT IN THE OVEN, ON A BAKING SHEET, FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES ON 375. NO SPLATTER!!
ANGEL HAIR W/ ROASTED CHICKEN & BACON
- 1 lb of angel hair pasta
- 1 lb of thick sliced bacon – diced into large chunks
- 2 breasts of fully cooked organic rotisserie chicken – diced
- 1 pint of cherry tomatoes – halved
- 1/2 cup parsely
- 6 oz of shredded parmesan cheese
- olive oil
Cook the bacon in the oven, on a lined baking sheet, at 375 degrees until crispy. Let cool and cut into large pieces. Carve the breasts of a store-bought organic rotisserie chicken and dice. Set ingredients aside.
Cook the angel hair in boiling, salted water for about 12-15 minutes or until al dente. Drain the pasta and place in a large bowl and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and 2 tsp of kosher salt. Toss in the tomatoes, parmesan cheese and parsely. Then, toss in the bacon and chicken. Garnish with more parsely and parmesan cheese and serve alongside tomato foccacia bread or a french baguette.
