chicken-carbonara pasta

empty fridge means improvising--had some chicken, no bacon, and some eggs, decided to meddle with traditional carbonara. easy squeezy.

2-3 bowls of carbonara with chicken

1 chicken breast
1/4 red onion
1 huge clove garlic
2(ish) cups pasta
1 egg yolk
splash of white wine
curry powder
parmesan cheese

  • set a pot of water to boil for the pasta
  • dice up the chicken and sautee it with the aforementioned spices
  • when the chicken's nearly done, throw in the diced onion and garlic
  • in a new bowl, take 1/3 cup of the pasta water and beat in the egg yolk to temper it.
  • drain the pasta, add it to the chicken, onions, and garlic
  • pour the egg mix over, add cheese, and wine, and toss it like there's no tomorrow.
