Cook Time → 35 min
1. Cook the pasta according to the packet intructions.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan. Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes until well-browned. Add the bacon ( i suppose you could add some sliced mushrooms or something here aswell, or use all mushrooms if cooking this for veggies) and fry until starting to crisp.
Take the pan of the heat, then stir in the creme fraiche. Return the pan to the heat and stir in the pesto. Simmer for another 1-2 minutes until the chicken is properly cooked through. Season to taste.
Once cooked, drain the pasta well and add it to the pan. Mix well so the sauce coats the pasta.
Put in a bowel and top with Parlsey
