Chicken with Spinach and Pasta


Submitted by Kristy at Eckert Seamans. Thank you Kristy!

You’ll Need:

  • 1 lb. rotini pasta
  • 2 medium onions (sliced thin)
  • 1/2 bag of frozen spinach
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces (or chicken tenders, cut into 1 inch pieces), marinated in your favorite Italian-style dressing
  • Olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Ground red pepper (to taste)

Directions:

In dutch oven, saute onions in olive oil until clear.

Add spinach - cook until soft.

Remove onion/spinach mixture and place in oven on warm setting.

Cook diced chicken on medium heat (15-20 minutes), or until done.

While chicken is cooking, cook pasta according to package instructions (using dutch oven or pasta pot).

Add cooked chicken to onion/spinach mixture in oven. Keep warm.

Saute garlic in approximately 1/4 cup olive oil (use pasta pot).

Combine pasta with spinach and onion mixture in pot with garlic.

Season with salt, pepper and ground red pepper (for an extra kick!), to taste.

(Serves 6-8)

Enjoy!
