Ingredients :

▢2 teaspoons olive oil
▢1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
▢2 cloves garlic, minced
▢1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
▢1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
▢Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
▢1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, drained and excess oil blotted off with paper towels
▢8 ounces whole wheat or gluten-free pasta, (I used bowties)
▢3 cups low sodium chicken broth
▢2 teaspoons arrowroot powder dissolved in 2 teaspoons of water, (see note)
▢2 cups packed baby spinach
▢2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
▢1/2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
▢1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
▢1/3 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt

Préparations :

In a large skillet over medium high heat add the olive oil and chicken. Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink.
Add in the garlic and sun dried tomatoes and cook another 1-2 minutes.
Add in the chicken broth and pasta and stir until combined. Bring to a simmer then lower the heat to medium-low, cover with a lid and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the pasta is tender.
Add in the dissolved arrowroot/water slurry and stir until the liquid starts to thicken, about 1-2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and add the mozzarella, parmesan cheese, spinach and stir until the spinach starts to wilt.
Stir in the Greek yogurt until everything is combined. Taste for seasoning then serve immediately.

Enjoy !
