Spence's Pesto Chicken Pasta
I LOVED this recipe, which I served to my husband and dinner guests last night. My guests arrived one full hour early :( so I literally cooked while we visited. I doubled the recipe so that we'd have leftovers for hubbies lunch. Followed recipe, but cut back on artichokes a little (not hubbies favorite :) and minced three large cloves of garlic - less than called for. Next time I'll add more mushrooms, called for amount of artichokes and garlic, and add extra spinach - maybe 50% more. I used FOUR chicken breast halves. Sauteed them in HOT olive oil/butter mix until well browned. Then removed from pan while sauteeing mushrooms (and I added red onion). Then sliced chicken breasts and let everything simmer on lowest heat while I cooked pasta. Then added spinach and pesto. Chicken was slightly undercooked when I sliced; perfectly cooked and tender after simmering. Even my slightly picky, older guests loved this and asked for seconds. Definitely a keeper - Thank you ChezCristy!!
