Pesto Chicken Florentine

Pesto Chicken Florentine, extremely rich combination of chicken, spinach and creamy pesto sauce. Serve with crunchy bread and romaine salad–it’s the best!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into strips
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) package dry Alfredo sauce mix
  • 2 tablespoons pesto
  • 1 (8 ounce) package dry penne pasta
  • 1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese

Method

Step 1

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic, saute for 1 minute; then add chicken and cook for 7 to 8 minutes on each side. When chicken is close to being cooked through (no longer pink inside), add spinach and saute all together for 3 to 4 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, prepare Alfredo sauce according to package directions. When finished, stir in 2 tablespoons pesto; set aside.

Step 3

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook pasta for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Rinse under cold water and drain.

Step 4

Add chicken/spinach mixture to pasta, then stir in pesto/Alfredo sauce. Mix well, top with cheese and serve.
