As the recipe name indicates, this carbonara is made with chicken, and here Dillard chooses to use boneless, skinless breasts. He also uses bacon, but says “you can substitute it…with the more traditional option of pancetta” if you so choose. You will also need a whole egg plus the yolk and some spaghetti. Dillard likes to use the type of spaghetti sold as “pot size,” and tells us that the product “makes it very easy to make spaghetti in the Instant Pot,” but adds, “You can simply break regular spaghetti in half” if that’s what you want. You have to work with.
Butter, Parmesan, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and water complete the ingredient list, plus some parsley to spruce up the final product.
