Delicious, easy, and quick (yay for dinner in under 30 minutes), this Chicken Feta Spinach Tomato Pasta is one amazing meal that is sure to become a favorite dinner. The chicken and sauce are cooked in one pan making cleanup a breeze!
You know how there are certain flavors that go together? For example spinach and feta, they’re like a match made in heaven. Then throw in some tomatoes and pasta and chicken and wow, just wow, the marriage of flavors just got that much better.
And because I’m talking about amazing marriages, it would be remiss if I didn’t tell you that this meal is a take on the first meal I made for my husband. Long before I even had this blog and was sharing recipes, I loved to cook (and of course I’d love to think that this was the dish that made him fall in love with me). The only difference in the dish I made back then was that I stuffed the feta in the chicken breasts instead of using the feta in the sauce and on top of the pasta. Either way, this dish is tasty and has amazing flavors. My husband even remembers that this was the first dish I made for him, so whenever we have this it’s very nostalic and makes us both happy, and who doesn’t want to have a dinner that makes them happy?
Making this incredibly tasty meal is super easy. You start by cooking chicken breast strips in a pan, and then to that pan adding canned tomatoes and then some feta and spinach. When cooked together it creates this beautiful creamy tomato sauce.
And while you’re cooking the chicken and sauce you cook a package of pasta (I’ve made this with multiple types of pasta: rigatoni, spaghetti, fettuccine, so use whatever kind of pasta is your preferred type. I will note that we like string-type pastas best and I tend to use fettuccine because it is a little sturdier than thin spaghetti.)
This is me being super dorky, but over the holidays I made this for dinner for my husband and I, and was joking that the dish matched our Christmas tree:
