Get all your ingredients together. It's much easier to work when they're all in the one place. Timing of ingredients in this dish is dependent on each other. We don't want a cold dish.

Preheat 1 tbsp of olive oil and 1 tbsp of butter. We use both to allow the onion to become crisp and draw out the onion flavour. Butter has high salt content.

Boil the chicken breast for just 5-7 minutes. This will do 2 things: soften the chicken and remove any bad chemicals or germs (not accusing anyone here but we can't be too careful).

Get your pasta ready. Carbonara is best served with fettucine. We like spaghetti. It's your choice. Any long thick pasta will do.

Crack some pepper over the top. If the smell burns your eyes then your heat is up too high. The black pepper should be just floating on the top.

Hint: when cooking spaghetti, only use salt. Adding oil wastes your precious oil and it just floats to the top. A better way is after you cook the pasta stir through 1 tbsp of olive to stop sticking

This lets us plate kickers to devour the creamy goodness. Don't deny it!! Everyone licks the plate when it's this good. Or if you're a delicate queen, use a piece of bread to soak up the cream.
