Ingredients

    8 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into bit size pieces)
    5 slices of bacon
    12 ounces spaghetti noodles
    1/4 cup parmesan cheese
    2 egg yolks
    3 tbsp. heavy cream
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 cup frozen broccoli

Directions

Step 1: In a small bowl mix together parmesan cheese, eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper. In another bowl mix together wine, chicken broth and lemon juice. Set both aside.
Step 2: Bring a pot of water to a boil for cooking the noodles.
Step 3: In a large skillet cook bacon in batches until crispy. Drain on paper towels.

Step 4: Fry chicken pieces in bacon fat until fully cooked. Drain on paper towels.
Step 5: Deglaze the pan with wine mixture scraping up any bits on the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes. Place noodles in boiling water and cook according to package directions.

Step 6: While noodles are cooking crumble bacon slices into bits and in a large bowl mix chicken, bacon bits, wine glaze mixture, and parmesan/egg mixture. Drain noodles and shake to get rid of any extra water.
Step 7: Add broccoli and egg mixture to piping hot noodles and mix well.
