"Tonight, I was desperate to use up the chicken and fresh spinach in my fridge. I didn't have much energy or time and I couldn't find anything I wanted to make. I took a chance and threw this together from what I had on hand and it turned out great! It can be as simple or as fancy as you want. My picky 5-year olds and husband enjoyed it (except the spinach), so that pretty much makes it a keeper."

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken in hot oil and sprinkle with poultry seasoning and black pepper. Cook and stir chicken in hot oil until no longer pink, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Pour water into skillet and bring to a simmer. Stir angel hair pasta, peas, and mushrooms into skillet; cook until pasta is tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir wine and garlic powder into pasta mixture. Add spinach and stir until spinach wilts, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle individual servings with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Play with the veggies and seasonings. I'm sure this would taste great with almost anything. I can't remember exactly when I put in the mushrooms. Everything I added was an afterthought so it wasn't very streamlined! It would have been better with broth instead of water.

Bland and boring.

Added roasted red peppers and the some cherry tomato slices at the end. Easy, filling, and tasty.
