Easy, Chicken Dinner Idea

You probably have all of these ingredients except the secret good!

Our creative director, Paula Monette Ethier, gave me this recipe. Loved it!

Italian Spinach and Chicken

2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. chopped shallots
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 (3.5 oz) pkg. sliced pepperoni
2 (10 oz) pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained, or 8 cups
packed fresh spinach leaves
2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil (or use dried)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)
2 cups hot cooked white rice
1 tbs olive oil

1. In large skillet, cook chicken, garlic and shallots in 1 tablespoon hot oil over medium heat 5 minutes
or until chicken is no longer pink.

2. Stir in tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, and pepperoni. Simmer, covered 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Add spinach and simmer, covered. 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, if desired.

Serve over rice.
