Ingredients:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups grated parmesan cheese
1 large onion
1/2 sprig fresh cilantro
3 chicken breasts
6 slices bacon
2 tablespoons olive oil
16 oz penne pasta

Directions:

1) Simmer the chicken breast in water until it is white, all the way through.
(20-30 minutes). Cook the bacon on medium heat. Once the bacon is no longer rubbery, set it aside while the chicken finishes.

4) Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil (you can use the same water and pot from the chicken). Add about 16 ounces of penne pasta and turn down to medium heat.

5) While the pasta cooks, add heavy whipping cream, Parmesan cheese, bacon, and chicken to the sauce pan. Cook on medium-low heat until the cheese melts into the cream. Stir frequently.
