Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package spaghetti
  • ½ pound bacon, chopped
  • 2 cooked skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • ¼ cup white grape juice
  • 3 egg yolks, whisked
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Asiago cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. 2 Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Add chicken and stir until coated. Stir garlic and red pepper flakes into chicken-bacon mixture; cook and stir until garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  3. 3 Pour chicken broth and grape juice over chicken mixture; reduce heat to low and cook until warmed, about 5 minutes. Add about 3 spoonfuls broth mixture to egg yolks; whisk until egg yolks are warmed. Pour egg yolk mixture into broth mixture; cook and stir over low heat until smooth.
  4. 4 Stir Parmesan cheese and Asiago cheese into egg-broth mixture; cook and stir until cheeses are melted and sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Add spaghetti to sauce and mix well.

  1. Yes. It's a great meal
  2. Delicious! I thought the sauce was a little thin at first but it worked great!
  3. The family really liked this. I thought it was good but could have been a little saucier. I substituted sherry for the grape juice but followed the rest of the recipe to the tee. I’ll def make it again.
  4. Followed recipe fairly close. I used much less red pepper flakes dry wine instead of grape juice and 4 cloves of garlic. Turned out wonderful would make it again!
  5. I followed the recipe to the T. next time I may adjust a few things to thicken up the sauce a bit. I questioned the amount of red pepper flakes but it was not to spicy at all. I would compare it to a mild/med salsa
