1. Bring a pan of well-salted water to the boil. Cook the spaghetti in the boiling water according to packet instructions or until al dente. 2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat, add the bacon and cook for 3-4 minutes, until lightly golden. Stir in the chicken and cook for 5 minutes. 3. Lightly beat the eggs, egg yolks and cream together in a small bowl. Drain the spaghetti, tip back into the pan and add the bacon, chicken, egg and cream mixture, two-thirds of the grated cheese, the butter and freshly ground black pepper. 4. Toss together well but do not return to the heat. Serve chicken spaghetti carbonara with the remaining grated cheese sprinkled over the top.
