The flavors of tender paprika-seasoned chicken strips simmered in broth, onion and a splash of lemon juice as well as sherry go wonderfully with wilted spinach and a mix of cheeses. Sargento® Shredded Mozzarella - Traditional Cut is among the tasty toppings on top of a bed of your favorite al dente pasta.

  • 8 oz. rotini or penne pasta
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) fresh spinach
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 2-inch strips
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. dry sherry
  • 1/4 cup (1 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Mozzarella - Traditional Cut, divided
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. When pasta is done, stir spinach into pot with pasta and cook 1 minute. Drain pasta and spinach together; set aside.
  2. Combine flour, salt and paprika in plastic or paper bag. Add chicken strips; shake bag to coat evenly. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat; add chicken strips, reserving any flour mixture in bag. Cook chicken 4 minutes or until no longer pink.
