6
slices bacon, coarsely chopped
1
tablespoon margarine or butter
1 1/2
cups hot water
2 1/2

3
cups cubed deli rotisserie chicken (from 2- to 2 1/2-lb chicken)
1
cup Green Giant™ frozen sweet peas

Steps

  • 2 Stir in hot water, milk, sauce mix and uncooked pasta (from Chicken Helper box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.

Expert Tips

You can use uncooked chicken breasts instead of the rotisserie chicken. Add 2 tablespoons margarine or butter (instead of 1) to bacon drippings in skillet; carefully add 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Cook over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until outsides turn white. Beginning with step 2, continue with recipe as written—except omit rotisserie chicken.

Carbonara sauce is a white sauce flavored with Parmesan cheese and bacon or ham. We've added peas to this version for a touch of sweetness and color.
