Start the chicken when you put the pasta in to boil and both will be ready at the same time, meaning dinner an be on the table in less than half an hour from start to finish. The chicken is browned in a skillet with garlic and bacon and, when it's cooked through, simmered with cilantro, mushrooms, cheese, and milk until thickened to a sauce. Flat noodles like fettuccine are the best shape for this dish.
