Creamy Chicken With Bacon & Penne Pasta

I have made this recipe and it is definitely a keeper!!! DELICIOUS!!!


8 slices of bacon (cooked)
4 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves Cooked and
cut into chunks.
1 box Penne pasta
1-8oz tub Philadelphia Chive and Onion Cream Cheese
3/4 cups chicken broth
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
5or6 fresh basil leaves finely chopped (more or less to taste)
1 Tblsp minced garlic
1 tblsp olive oil

Cook your chicken to your liking...grilled, pan sauteed,or baked...Cook pasta according to instructions on box. While pasta is cooking, saute tomatoes in olive oil with a little salt and pepper adding garlic towards the end.Cut up bacon in small pieces and fry bacon until crisp and drain on paper towel. Drain pasta and add cream cheese and chicken broth and stir gently until cream cheese is melted.Add cooked chicken, bacon and basil....

THIS disappears in minutes, with rave reviews.

Good served with a salad and garlic bread.
