Let me tell you about a special dough that I recently introduced into my life that has somehow managed to become one of our favorite whipped dinners all the time. It’s a combination of delicious shell pasta, tender chicken breasts, sweet caramelized onions and nutritious spinach that melts perfectly into a rich but light parmesan sauce.
It’s quick to make this chicken stew and a great meal. Try this spinach and chicken stew with dry cooked pasta or rice and buttermilk. Maybe it’s just me, but it’s only recently that I’ve been getting a kick out of spinach. There’s something special about this vegetable, and you can never have enough for breakfast, lunch and dinner, spinach is perfect. Tell your friends and family about this recipe and let them feel the magic of this dish.
2 cups boneless, cubed chicken breast
1 cup Italian dressing, as needed
½ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp lemon pepper

(2) packages of softened cream cheese
½ cup chopped fresh chives
¼ cup of olive oil
(1) clove of garlic, chopped

Drain and discard the chicken and season the chicken marinade with lemon pepper and garlic powder. Move the seasoned chicken to a baking dish. Arrange the spinach on top of the chicken.
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, chives, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Gradually pour chicken broth into cream cheese mixture, stirring until smooth; pour in chicken and spinach. Fill the foil casserole dish.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and cover chicken mixture with mozzarella cheese; cook, melt, 15 to 20 minutes until chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
