  • knife
  • cutting board
  • Large Frying Pan with a Lid
  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • tongs


  • cooking spray
  • 1 slice bacon
  • 1 2-3 oz chicken tender thawed
  • 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 cup mushrooms washed and dried
  • ¼ whole white onion
  • 1 heaping teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 oz spaghetti
  • 1 ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon paste
  • ¼ teaspoon minced garlic
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • optional: parsley and red pepper flakes for garnish


  • Slice 1 cup white button mushrooms into about ¼ inch slices. Roughly chop ¼ white onion.
  • Spray large frying pan with cooking spray, heat over medium-high heat. Place slice of bacon and chicken tender on one side of the frying pan, then pour 1 teaspoon oil on other side and spread mushrooms and onion out. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and ¼ teaspoon salt over mushrooms. Cook until bacon is crispy and mushrooms have shurnk and are crispy on the edges, about 5-8 minutes. Remove bacon, chicken, and mushrooms from pan when done.
  • Pour 1 ¼ cup water, 3 oz spaghetti pasta, 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon paste, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon minced garlic into pot. Stir so all pasta is covered with water. Cook for 5-8 minutes, or until pasta is al dente. Add more water if needed.
  • Chop chicken and bacon into bite sized pieces while pasta is cooking. Once pasta is done and most of the water is gone, turn burner down to low. Mix 1 teaspoon flour into ¼ c milk and pour into pasta. Add 1 teaspoon butter and 2 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese to pasta. Return chicken, bacon, and mushrooms to pasta. Toss with tongs until all pasta is coated by the sauce. Cook it down to a thick sauce if needed, season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with chopped parsley and red pepper flakes if desired.



  • Cook bacon in between chicken and mushrooms. The little fat that's rendered can transfer to chicken and the mushrooms this way.
  • You can use white button mushrooms or cremini mushrooms. Whatever you like/can find.
  • You can double this recipe for leftovers. Just sprinkle a teaspoon or so water in the pasta before microwaving it for leftovers.
