In a medium saucepan cook the bacon until crispy and all of the fat is rendered, about 4 minutes. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until very soft, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the peas and chicken broth and cook, stirring occasionally, until flavorful and cooked to the desired degree of doneness, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper, cover, and let sit for 5 minutes longer. Serve hot.
