Garlic Chicken Farfalle

This doesn't look like much but it was fabulous. Definitely a busy day crockpot meal.Garlic Chicken Farfalle

From: Real Mom Kitchen

1 lb. Bowtie pasta (obviously I used penne because it is what I had.)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3-4 chicken breast
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs. pepper (I think I used a tad bit less)
1/2 cup butter
1 lb. bacon,cooked and crumbled (this seemed like way too much, so I used less)
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 (12 oz.) bottle Lawry's Mesquite marinade with lime juice

In the crockpot, cook chicken and marinade on low heat for 6-8 hours. Pull marinated chicken out of the juices, allow to cool a bit and shred. Set a side.

About a half hour before serving, boil the pasta.

In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add garlic, cream, pepper, parmesan and curmbled bacon. Whisk together on low heat for 3-4 minutes. In a large bowl, pour over cooked, drained pasta. Add chicken and stir to combine. Sprinkle a little bit more shredded parmesan cheese on top.
