Estimated values based on one serving size.
- In a large pot, crisp the bacon on medium heat.
- Drain excess grease so there’s about 3 tablespoons left in the pot.
- Add in the chicken, season with half of the seasoned salt and pepper, and cook.
- Once the chicken is nicely browned, remove it from the pan but leave the bacon.
- Add in the onion and asparagus. Stir until the onions begin to become translucent.
- Add the garlic and spinach. Stir until spinach is wilted.
- Add in the sun-dried tomatoes and season with remaining salt and pepper.
- Pour milk over veggie and bacon mixture, and bring to a boil. Stir periodically so the bottom does not burn.
- Once milk is bubbling, add pasta and stir frequently until pasta reaches your desired doneness (approximately 10 minutes at medium heat).
- Stir in chicken and parmesan cheese and mix until cheese is melted.
