  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion in the hot oil until just fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for about 45 seconds. Mix chicken tenders into onion mixture; cook until chicken is browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken mixture to a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Cover chicken mixture with spinach; pour marinara sauce over spinach layer. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and spinach is wilted, about 30 minutes.
  5. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the fettuccine, bring back to a boil, and cook pasta over medium heat until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and transfer fettuccine to serving plates.
  6. Top each plate with chicken-marinara mixture; garnish each serving with Parmesan cheese.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This was a good dish. Had it with some warm crusty bread and went back for seconds! Going to try it again soon but with Italian sausages instead of chicken.

This is even easier if you make it all in one skillet, less to wash. I added in some black olives also.

This was very easy and very tasty. Make sure you use a good marinara sauce with this as that is the main flavor.

4 and a half stars. I feel that salt and pepper are an option in every recipe and as one reviewer wrote, most of the flavor is from the sauce, so make sure you have a good one before you move ...

I made this almost exactly as written & it was very good. My whole family, cleaned their plate. I didn't use quite as much onion or garlic as the recipe called for. I served with veggie pasta...

This is a great start! I also added sun dried tomatoes (in oil sliced), kalamata olives sliced and Italian seasoning (basil, oregano, some crushed red pepper) Instead of baking it, I put the spi...

This is relatively fast and easy. I read the reviews, and agreed that seasoning is needed on the chicken. I pounded 3 breasts (pounding is a must - makes chicken tender!) and sprinkled boths si...

Good weeknight meal. I added salt, pepper, basil, and oregano. Leftovers were even better reheated the next day.

I removed one star because the absence of salt and spices led to a bit bland chicken. I recommend adding salt and spices to the onion-garlic mix before adding the chicken.
