Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 2 pounds chicken breasts cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning herbs
  • 1 quart low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 pound shells pasta
  • 1 1/2 cups parmesan cheese freshly shredded
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley

Instructions

  1. Season cubed chicken with 1/2 a teaspoon of kosher salt and some ground black pepper.
  2. Add 2 tablespoon of olive oil to a large pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, brown the chicken in two batches to prevent overcrowding. Cook the chicken until golden brown.
  3. Once the chicken has been browned, add 2 more tablespoons of olive oil and minced garlic, Italian seasoning and sun-dried tomatoes. Saute for about one minute.
  4. Add chicken broth, heavy cream, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and uncooked pasta to the pan and stir.
  5. Once the mixture starts to bubble, cover and reduce the heat to a simmer.
  6. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender.
  7. Remove from heat and stir in spinach until wilted.
  8. Stir in 2 cups of shredded Parmesan cheese.
  9. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, remaining 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and serve.
