Tuscan Garlic Chicken Pasta

Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 1/2 cups flour, plus 1 tablespoon

1 tablespoon salt

2 teaspoons black pepper

2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

1 pound fettuccine pasta, cooked according to package directions

5 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon garlic, chopped

1 red pepper, julienne cut

1/2 cup white wine

1/2 pound whole leaf spinach, stemmed (I used baby spinach)

2 cups heavy cream

1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions

1. Pre-heat oven to 350º.

2. Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in the mixture, shaking off any excess

3. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet. Cook chicken breasts 2 at a time over medium-high heat until golden brown and crisp (2-3 minutes). Add more oil for each batch as necessary.

4. Place cooked chicken breasts on a baking sheet and transfer to preheated oven. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°.

5. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a sauce pan. Add garlic and red pepper and cook for approximately 1 minute. Stir in 1 tablespoon flour, wine, spinach and cream and bring to a boil. Sauce is done when spinach becomes wilted. Complete by stirring in parmesan cheese.

6. Coat cooked, drained pasta with sauce, then top with chicken and remaining sauce. Garnish with extra Parmesan cheese.
