  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Cook the fettuccini in the boiling water until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain.
  2. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes; drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Finely chop bacon and set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the chicken, onion, and garlic in the butter until chicken is browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the alfredo sauce, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt; continue to cook and stir until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the sauce is heated through, about 5 minutes more. Add the chopped bacon and mix to serve.

I only had one jar of Newman's alfredo sauce and that was plenty. I did thin it down just a touch with some organic chicken broth as it seemed to be a touch too thick. Instead of garlic salt I used garlic powder. The family thought this was very good and I was impressed it turned out so well with a jarred sauce. This was great for me as it's a while until we see payday and this used ingredients I had on hand.

Not that great.

I added quite a bit of cream to get it to the consistency I was wanted. Other than the cream, I added in a good handful of fresh parsley. I am really glad I made those two additions since it totally hid the jarred taste. I did leave the chicken out of this recipe and served marinated grilled chicken cut on the diagonal over top. The bacon is what made this so good, but bacon makes everything better! I'll make this again and toss in some frozen peas. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I tweeked this just a bit (no offense, I always do). I used packaged real bacon bits and chicken thighs to make it more budget friendly. I knew it was a hit with my husband when he said ,"we can have this again"!

Everyone loved it. We used garlic powder instead of garlic salt and will add more bacon next time.

We made this as written and loved it! It received the seal of approval from our 4 and 11 year olds. I think next time we'll add some sautéed mushrooms just because we like mushrooms. Great recipe!

Super tasty!

I made this for dinner tonight without changing the recipe, and my family loved it! I like it having a lot of sauce, so I will probably add more next time.
