Low carb Chicken Alfredo with bacon

OK...this was killer ! I will never used packaged or jarred Alfredo sauce again. I have tried for years to make a yummy Alfredo sauce and wouldn't you know it wasn't until I experimented with my low carb diet that I was successful !This sauce is so good it would be delicious over pasta but since we don't eat pasta I made noodles out of zucchini. 

Here is what you will need:
4 chicken breasts
1 lb bacon
1 clove garlic (at least)
8 oz pkg of cream cheese
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Pepper to taste

Here is how I did it:
I started by first cooking the bacon. Our bacon is purchased in the frozen section of the market here, so that is how we also keep it. I dice it up before I cook it.When it is cooked to your liking, use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon which will be added back a little later on. In the same pan with the bacon grease I cooked the diced chicken (which is also in the frozen section here). Add the garlic. When the chicken is done throughout I added the cream cheese. Cook till melted down and add the heavy cream. I let this mixture come to a boil and finish off by adding the Parmesan, pepper and bacon. It that easy or what ?

Enjoy = )
