What's for Dinner - Gluten Free style

Nothing too fancy this week, just one of my favorites... It's loosely based on a Carbonara recipe. Emphasis on loosely. And as always, my chicken-allergic peoples, feel free to substitute some lean pork or something else you like for the chicken.

Chicken & Bacon Alfredo
Amounts of ingredients should be based on how many people you're cooking for. I usually use 4-5 chicken thighs, a medium onion, 4-7 cloves of garlic, a handful of bacon, and two jars of sauce. This gets our family of 4 a full meal plus leftovers for the next day's lunch.

1. Saute chopped onion and garlic in some butter or olive oil until tender.
2. Add chopped bacon, and saute quickly. If not using pre-cooked bacon, be sure bacon is completely cooked/crispy before adding chicken.
3. Add chopped chicken and saute, stirring frequently, until chicken is nearly cooked through.
4. Add Alfredo sauce. My favorite is Classico: one jar of alfredo and one of 4 cheese alfredo. (So many of their sauces are GF, and they're soooooooo yummy, too!)
5. Reduce heat and simmer gently while you make pasta. Toss and serve.

I love carbonara and haven't had alfredo since going gluten free. Time to change that.

Great idea and definitely our type of meal. I like the Classico sauces also.

Just wanted to tell you that I loved your choice of "anthem" on the Stuff Christians Like blog today. And I blogged about it. Thanks.

This sounds yummy, I'll have to try it. I found you via SITS and just spent nearly an hour reading your older posts. My aunt had celiac and she actually died from it because she was older and just refused to adjust her diet. Sounds like you are doing great and are a very strong person.
