I love when time allows me to get creative in the kitchen. Even more, I love when that creativity produces something magical. It doesn’t always happen y’all so I take pride when it does. I was inspired to make this when I ran across a non-vegan version on Pinterest. I used what ingredients I had on hand though, so it wasn’t exactly as the original. I can’t speak for their recipe, but my finished product turned out pretty darn good.
The cashew based garlic cream sauce really makes this dish feel indulgent, but made with zero dairy, it’s much lower in fat and calories. The chicken and bacon make it a hearty dish too so there was no need for a side dish or salad. The serving could easily stretch to six if you add a salad.
I’m already thinking of making this recipe again with some tweaks. If you make it, I’d love to hear your take. It’s definitely one to keep in the book.
