What's For Dinner? "Chicken Carbonara"

Bacon and chicken and pasta oh my!

Chicken Carbonara


2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
6 slices of bacon, thinly sliced
4 boneless, skinless fresh chicken breasts, sliced thinly
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pint half and half
8 egg yolks
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan
1 box of thin spaghetti pasta
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped Basil for garnish


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the spaghetti and cook until al dente (or desired doneness). Make sure you stir occasionally to avoid sticking. Drain

In the meantime, heat the oil in a large nonstick pan; add bacon and cook until just crisp (do NOT over cook). Add garlic and cook until fragrant (30 seconds).

Add the chicken to the bacon and cook until no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes. Set the pot aside until you complete the next step.

Whisk together the egg yolk, half & half and Parmesan.

Return your pan to med-low heat. Add your cooked pasta and egg/cream mixture and toss for about 4 minute…

Zaycon Hormone-Free Natural Chicken Event ($1.69/lb) Open NOW For Orders - While Supplies Last

I've been getting emails asking when Zaycon Foods will be having another Chicken sale. You'll be happy to know that the Louisiana events are scheduled and now open to make your orders

You'll also be happy to know that it's not on Halloween this year. 

There are 2 events in our area (Baton Rouge and Gonzales on Saturday, September 29th) and even more within the state. You must place your order by September 26th or while supplies last since it's a limited sale event. The price for one 40lb box is $67.50 or $1.69/lb!!

About Zaycon Foods Chicken

In my opinion, this is the best way to buy fresh-from-the-farm 100% natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients. Oh and NEVER frozen. 

Zaycon sells their chicken in 40lb boxes for around $1.47-$1.69/lb!!! Compare that to buying the same chicken in the grocery store for almost $6.00/lb.

How to get in on this great deal:

Head over to Zaycon Foods and register as a "New Customer". This wi…
