Bacon Chicken Pasta

16 oz farfalle pasta (bow-tie)
1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
4 chicken breasts
3-4 cloves of garlic
1T pepper
3/4 cup butter
1 lb bacon (previously cooked and crumbled) **must be real, fresh cooked bacon. not "bacon bits or real bacon"
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 120z lawry's mesquite marinade with lime juice

In Crock Pot cook chicken in marinade on low for 6 hours. Pull marinated chicken out of the juices and allow to cool, shred. Set aside.
Half an hour before serving, boil pasta.
in a small sauce pan melt better. Then add garlic, whipping cream, pepper, cheese and bacon. Wisk together on low heat for 3-4 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, add some milk for desired consistency. In a large bowl pour sauce over cooked drained pasta. Add chicken, stir through. Sprinkle with a little bit more cheese for presentation on top.

This is so good and so easy!
