Ingredients

Cost per serving $1.25 view details
  • 1 lb. thin chicken breasts
  • 3 tbs. olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Oregano, to taste
  • 1/4 Red Onion, sliced very thin
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and diced fine
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach, stems removed
  • 2 tsp. flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4-1/2 box of pasta of your choice, I used angel hair
  • Feta cheese crumbles

Directions

  1. Heat a large pan over medium and add olive oil. Season chicken with salt, pepper and oregano and cook through. Remove from heat and chop into thin slices, set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, set water to boil and begin cooking pasta per directions.
  3. In the same pan, add the red onion & garlic, cook for about 4 minutes until soft. Add the lemon juice and scrape up the browned bits left over from the chicken.
  4. Whisk together the milk and flour, then slowly pour into the pan to form your sauce. Season with more salt, pepper and oregano to taste. Let simmer and thicken. Once thickened, add chicken strips back into sauce to reheat through.
  5. Drain your pasta.
  6. Before adding pasta to the pan, throw in the spinach and add pasta on top, letting the hot pasta wilt the spinach for about 3 minutes.
  7. Stir until everything is combined and portion into bowls.
  8. Top with crumbled Feta cheese. Enjoy!

    This dish is Delicious & Easy! My son's 3rd Grade Class had studied a lot about the Greeks & the Romans, then they had a party where they made all sorts of fun crafts, and sampled Roman & Greek food. Moms were supposed to bring the food, and I chose to make this pasta. I know some of the kids didn't like it, but it was for sure a hit w/the teachers and adults.....I love it!!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
