Looking for a hearty dinner? Then check out this cheesy pasta and chicken recipe that is ready in 20 minutes – perfect if you love an Italian cuisine.
cups uncooked gemelli or rotini pasta (8 oz)
tablespoon olive oil
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
cup balsamic vinaigrette dressing
large tomatoes, chopped (2 cups)
cups chopped deli rotisserie chicken (from 2 lb-chicken)
bag (6 oz) fresh baby spinach leaves
cup crumbled feta cheese (2 oz)
Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook onion in oil about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add dressing, tomatoes and chicken. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot. Stir in spinach; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until spinach starts to wilt.
In large serving bowl, toss pasta with chicken mixture. Top with cheese.
For Mediterranean flair, stir some halved kalamata olives into this pasta dish.
You will get about 3 cups of chicken from a 2-lb rotisserie chicken, so use the leftovers in another recipe.
