Serves: 4 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

 

 
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast half
1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
Swanson® Chicken Stock or 1 1/2 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth
1 jar (about 8 ounces) pesto sauce (about 1 cup)
1 package (about 7 ounces) fresh baby spinach (about 8 cups)
1/2 of a 1-pound package fettuccine, cooked and drained
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese




Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Reduce the heat to medium.  Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the broth and pesto sauce.  Add the spinach.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the spinach is wilted.

Stir in the fettuccine.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Sprinkle with the cheese, if desired.

Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.
