Quick Weeknight Skillet Chicken

charlotte221

"Tonight, I was desperate to use up the chicken and fresh spinach in my fridge. I didn't have much energy or time and I couldn't find anything I wanted to make. I took a chance and threw this together from what I had on hand and it turned out great! It can be as simple or as fancy as you want. My picky 5-year olds and husband enjoyed it (except the spinach), so that pretty much makes it a keeper."

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken in hot oil and sprinkle with poultry seasoning and black pepper. Cook and stir chicken in hot oil until no longer pink, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Pour water into skillet and bring to a simmer. Stir angel hair pasta, peas, and mushrooms into skillet; cook until pasta is tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir wine and garlic powder into pasta mixture. Add spinach and stir until spinach wilts, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle individual servings with Parmesan cheese.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Play with the veggies and seasonings. I'm sure this would taste great with almost anything. I can't remember exactly when I put in the mushrooms. Everything I added was an afterthought so it wasn't very streamlined! It would have been better with broth instead of water.

I thought the spinach was bitter - next time I will use less. A whole pound of pasta seemed like it would be too mucn, so I used half-a-pound, which was perfect. I also added sliced mushrooms...

This is exactly the type of recipe I'm looking for when I look for 'quick week-night meal'. I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but I believe that's the whole point. This is a recipe with basi...

Truth in advertising - this one is quick! The only changes I made were to use stock instead of water, and parmesan gnocchi instead of the angel hair, and we inhaled the results! I love how fast ...

Super easy. Used zucchini instead of peas, didn't have spinach.

I marinated the chicken in balsamic vinegar, soy and garlic for 2 hours before frying. I also used Parmesan cheese and cream to finish. Reviews were mixed in my house. Two liked it with the c...

Easy! Added garlic which helped.
