Chicken with Spinach & Pasta

Chicken with Spinach & Pasta:

8 oz. penne pasta - I used colorful penne since it is summer time
10 oz. fresh spinach
2 T flour
1/4t salt
1/4t paprika
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut in strips
2 T EVOO
1/2 C Italian dressing fat free
1/2 C chicken broth
1/2 C chopped onion
2 T lemon juice
2 T dry sherry
1/4 C Parmesan cheese
1 C  mozzarella cheese

Cook the  pasta and stir in spinach for about a minute. Drain pasta & spinach then set aside. Combine flour, salt and paprika in a plastic bag then shake to coat the chicken evenly. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat; add chicken strips, reserving any flour mixture in the bag. Cook chicken until no longer pink and add dressing, broth, onion, lemon juice, sherry, and remaining flour. Cook and stir over medium heat for about 5 minutes or till bubbly. Add drained pasta mixture to skillet; toss well to heat. Turn down heat and stir in Parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Serve!


My sister emailed this recipe to me - it was AMAZING. It's a great, filling dinner choice. Very easy to make, but extremely tasty in your mouth. It was cheesy - what isn't good with cheese?! The mixture for the chicken and the "dressing" that the chicken was cooked in was the best part. Enjoy!
