Chicken and Ravioli Carbonara

February 22, 2011...tonight we revisit a relatively easy and tasty meal, the Chicken and Ravioli Carbonara. One serving is only 265 calories. Only problem is eating it too fast!! Tonight, we served it with some french bread which is only 110 calories per slice. So now I have plenty of leftover to take with me to work tonight.

I thought I had shared this recipe before but I couldn't find it anywhere so here it is.

Betty Crocker Casseroles & Slow Cooker Meals

Start to Finish: 30 minutes)

1/2 cup half-and-half
4 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired

1. In 10 inch skillet, heat dressing over high heat. Cook chicken in dressing 2 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown.

2. Add broth and ravioli to skillet. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered about 4 minutes or until ravioli are tender and almost all broth has evaporated.

3. Stir in half-and-half; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 3 to 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, and sauce is hot and desired consistency (cook longer for a thicker sauce). Sprinkle with bacon, cheese, and parsley.
