Ingredients:

12 oz. angel hair
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
6 slices bacon, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. low-sodium chicken broth
1 pt. Peters Famous Caesar Dressing
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan
2 tbsp. Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 c. freshly chopped parsley

Steps:

1) In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook angel hair until al dente. Drain and reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
2) Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil.

3) Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper then add to skillet. Cook until chicken is golden and cooked through, 8 minutes per side. Let rest 10 minutes, then slice into strips. Wipe skillet clean.
4) Return skillet to medium heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve about two tablespoons of bacon fat in skillet.
5) Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Pour in broth to deglaze pan. Stir in Caesar dressing and bring mixture to a low simmer.

6) Add angel hair, Parmesan, lemon juice, and parsley and toss until combined.

(If sauce is too thick, gradually add pasta water, about 1⁄4 cup at a time until you reach your desired consistency.).
