Chicken and Spinach with Pesto

Submitted by: POKIE1

Introduction

This is easy to prepare and has everything-protein, carb and vegetable! I still like to serve it with fruit on the side. This is easy to prepare and has everything-protein, carb and vegetable! I still like to serve it with fruit on the side.

Ingredients

    2 skinless boneless chicken breasts halves, chunked
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1/2 cup onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 cup chicken broth
    1-10 ounce package fresh spinach
    1/8 cup basil pesto
    8 ounces farfalle pasta, uncooked

Directions

1. Start pasta water and prepare pasta according to package directions.
2. Heat oil to medium heat in a large skillet.
3. Add chicken and cook until pink is gone.
4. Add the onions and garlic and cook until the chicken is lightly browned.
5. Add the broth and bring to a boil.
6. Add spinach, a handful at a time. It looks like a lot but it will wilt!
7. Drain the pasta and add to the skillet with the chicken mixture.

Enjoy!
