Chicken-Pecan Fettuccine

I would not have thought to add pecans to the top of this, but it worked. This is delicious. I toasted the pecans

This is from the Southern Living 1996 Quick & Easy Recipes

I used Farfalle pasta instead of the fettuccine


Cast Iron Skillet Rotisserie Chicken Pasta dish

Caste Iron Skillet Rotisserie chicken, broccoli, bacon, pasta shells, mozzarella Cheese – Rotisserie from Sams because they are delicious. I used 2% milk. Prepare the pasta per package instructions – this equaled about 2 1/2 to 3 cups, drain, and set aside (I used medium shell pasta) All of the next part was done in the same cast iron skillet. You can cook the bacon whole and then chop it, but I chop the bacon first, and then cook it, then scoop the bacon out and set aside in a dish – Leave the bacon fat in the skillet; stir fry the broccoli just to get that charred look – take the broccoli out of the pan, and set aside; (I put the broccoli in same dish as the cooked bacon pieces); add 1 tsp of garlic; (or more to your liking) add about 1/4 or 1/3 cup flour; (I just scooped it out with a large serving spoon – so that was about what it looked like); mixed that in the bacon drippings; add 2 1/2 cups of milk , start with 2 cups, because after 2 it looked like it needed a bit more; stirred all of this until it got thick; add 1 cup mozzarella (because I have a quantity of this from New Years charcuterie board ); stir until melted; add some kosher salt to your liking, add the chicken (about 3 1/2 to 4 cups – chopped or shredded); add the broccoli and the bacon bits – mix all together; top all of this with 1/2 to 1 cup of mozzarella. Put in oven under broiler for about 3 or 4 minutes until cheese turns brown; I add pepper to the top when I pulled it out of the oven

The Best Chicken Parmesan

This is delicious and makes a lot. My college aged son said the house smelled so good while everything was being prepared throughout the day. I did this in stages. Definitely a keeper because I will make this again. This makes a lot, so be prepared for easy leftovers.
