  • 6 chicken breasts

  • 1 (16 ounce) box penne pasta

  • 4 (12 ounce) jars Alfredo sauce

  • 1 (12 ounce) jar quartered marinated artichoke hearts, drained

  • 1 (10 ounce) box frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place chicken breasts in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil; cook chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 15 minutes. Drain and cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes; slice into smaller pieces.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 9 minutes. Drain.

  4. Mix chicken slices, penne, Alfredo sauce, artichoke hearts, spinach, and diced tomatoes together in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbly, about 30 minutes.
