  • 200 g fettuccine pasta (or similar pasta)
  • 4 small chicken breasts
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup basil chopped
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes julienned
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Preheat oven to 375F. Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper and dried basil.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in an oven safe skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 3 minutes or until it begins to brown nicely. Flip and repeat on the other side.
  • Transfer the skillet into the oven and cook until the chicken is fully cooked, approximately 10-15 minutes (cook time will vary depending on the size of your chicken breasts).
  • While chicken is in the oven, heat 3 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet or pot. Add the flour and whisk to create a roux. Add the milk and stir until it thickens.
  • Add the Italian seasoning, spinach, basil, and sun-dried tomatoes. Simmer for a few minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce. Add the chicken as well and simmer for a couple minutes.
