Chicken with Spinach over Pasta

(for spinach lovers)

or as our family calls it, “Christmas chicken” due to its color.

(one serving, 15 to 20 minutes of prep time)

Cook 1½ oz of dry pasta of your choice (try penne or rigatoni) according to the recipe provided, omit salt (or use ½ cup cooked pasta)

  • ½ cup tomato sauce, low sodium
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • ½ clove garlic
  • ½ cup frozen spinach
  • 1 tsp parmesan cheese, low sodium
  • 3 oz chicken breast, boneless and skinless
  • ½ tsp onion powder

Rinse and pat dry chicken, then cut into strips. Mince garlic. Heat a nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray over low-medium heat, and sauté garlic for 2-3 minutes, until just soft. Raise heat to medium heat, add chicken and cook for 5-6 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove from pan and reserve. Microwave spinach in a microwavable bowl over high heat, covered for 2-3 minutes and drain. Add spinach and tomato sauce to skillet and simmer for about 2-3 minutes, covered. Add chicken and onion powder to sauce, stir and cover: simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Add cooked pasta to pan, combine and heat through for another minute. Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
