Italian Chicken and Pasta Dish

I came up with a new recipe I think you all will enjoy! And its super fast and so easy. This is so similar to my Chicken Pesto, but it has an Italian flavor instead. I added my Chicken Pesto link from ehow as well at the bottom of this recipe if you are interested.

1lb Chicken Breast
1 box Penne Pasta
1 tub of Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Cream, Italian Cheese and Herb flavor
Handful of Mozzarella Cheese
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper
4 Tbsp EVOO(extra virgin olive oil)
1/2 Bag of fresh Organic Spinach
Spritz of "I Can't Believe its Not Butter" Spray

Lay chicken on firm cutting board, cover with saran wrap, tuck under the cutting board and beat with a wooden mallet. Remove saran wrap and cut into square bite size pieces. Flattening it makes the pieces more even.
(If you're short on time like I was tonight, place chicken breast into skillet then pull from skillet and cut it up into bite size pieces after its cooked, the pieces won't be as even, and they made shred a little, but its faster.)

Pour EVOO into skillet on med./medium-high, place Chicken in skillet lavish with salt and pepper, onion and garlic powder on all sides and cook thoroughly. Let the EVOO cook out and it will glaze the chicken a little bit with the spices to give it a sort of grilled taste.

Cook pasta as directed on box, spray with "I can't believe Its not Butter" spray to keep from sticking and set to the side.

Place 1/2 bag of spinach into skillet, cook until wilted along with chicken, approx. 3minutes. Add Kraft cooking cream and pasta, mix together for about 5min. until warm. Sprinkle a handful of Mozzarella Cheese on top for extra cheesy flavoring.

Enjoy! :)
