Creamy Chicken and Bacon Fettucine

Pasta is always a favourite at our house especially Spaghetti Carbonarra with the kids so I knew that this dish would be a hit also.

A very easy and quick dish to prepare - the creamy taste complimented by the bacon and a hint of parmesan makes this dish a comfort meal that everyone enjoys eating during the winter months.

Creamy Chicken and Bacon Fettuccine

240 grams fettuccine
cooking spray
300 grams lean chicken breast, thinly sliced
1 small brown onion, thinly sliced

1/3 cup dry white wine
1 cup evaporated skim milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup reduced fat Sour Cream

Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet instructions, or until just tender. Drain. Return pasta to the pan.
