Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces Fettuccine Noodles (or other long pasta)
  • 1 Lb. Chicken Breast (thinly sliced)
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasonings (for the chicken)
  • 1 Teaspoon Italian Seasonings (for the sauce)
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 Cup Parmesan Cheese (by volume, shredded)
  • 2 Cups Spinach (fresh, chopped)
  • 1 Cup Sun-dried Tomatoes

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta per the package instructions and set aside.
  • While the pasta cooks, season chicken with salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings. Then heat a medium skillet over low-medium heat. Add the olive oil and chicken breasts.
  • Cook the chicken breasts for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. The centers of the chicken breasts should no longer be pink, and the juices should run clear. If the chicken breasts are thick, they will take longer than 4-5 minutes on each side.
  • Set the chicken aside to rest, and adjust the temperature of the pan to low. Add the heavy cream, chicken broth, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. When the mixture begins to steam (not bubble), add the Parmesan cheese.
  • Whisk the cheese until it is completely melted, and adjust the heat to medium. Continue to whisk and allow the sauce to thicken (about 5-7 minutes). Then add the spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. Allow the sauce to simmer for 3-5 minutes until the spinach begins to wilt. Turn off the heat and add the chicken back to the sauce. Serve the chicken and sauce over the pasta.

Notes

The calories listed are an approximation based on the ingredients and a serving size of four (4) ounces of chicken and two (2) ounces of pasta with about half a cup (1/2) of the sauce. Additionally, the shredded Parmesan cheese seen in the pictures (garnishing the pasta) is not a part of the calories listed. Actual calories will vary. Store any leftovers in a sealed container, in your fridge, for up to three (3) days.
