Tuscan Chicken and Spinach Pasta

//Tuscan Chicken and Spinach Pasta

This is a regular here. It’s great on pasta but I also put it in pastry and wrap up into a parcel shape.

This was the first time I did it in the tmx. I normally keep the chicken in chunks but I’m loving shredded chicken at the moment so decided to shred it.

My version of Tuscan Seasoning can be found here.

    Another quick and tasty meal, even the fussy husband liked it. Will definitely make again and got plenty of Tuscan seasoning left to use too

    I made a very nice dish inspired by this recipe. I basically used the above ingredients but the method from the TM creamy salami and tomato fettucine recipe. I put the chicken straight in the bowl after cooking the onion, added 50g water and cooked for 5 mins before shredding. I only had frozen spinach so I added the rest of the sauce ingredients plus 200g water, some chicken stock paste and 250g penne. So quick and easy and really good! I didn’t have time to make the tuscan seasoning so I used extra garlic, mixed herbs and s&p. Thanks for the inspiration and for helping me make enough dinner from one chicken breast for 2 adults and 3 kids!
