  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped, drained of oil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil drained from sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 lb chicken boneless and skinless (preferably, boneless skinless thighs), chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 roma tomatoes chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves chopped
  • 8 oz spinach fresh
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 8 oz spaghetti pasta
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (use high quality olive oil or oil from the sun-dried tomatoes jar)


  • Add chopped sun-dried tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of olive oil, drained from sun-dried tomatoes, to a large skillet, on medium-low heat. 
  • Add chopped chicken.  I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and prefer to use them, but you can use chopped chicken breast, as well. 
  • Add red pepper flakes, and salt over all of the ingredients in the skillet.  
  • Cook on medium heat until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  • Add chopped tomatoes, chopped fresh basil leaves, fresh spinach, and chopped garlic to the skillet with chicken.  Cook on medium heat for about 3- 5 minutes until spinach wilts just a little, and tomatoes release some of their juices. Remove from heat. 
  • Taste, and add more salt to taste, if needed. Cover with lid and keep off heat.
  • Cook pasta according to package instructions, until al dente. 
  • Drain.  Add cooked and drained pasta to the skillet with the chicken and vegetables. 
  • Reheat on low heat, mix everything well, add more seasonings (salt and pepper), if desired. Remove from heat.
  • At this point, when the pasta and vegetables are off heat, you can add more high-quality olive oil.  It’s optional but really tasty!   Or you can add more olive oil from the jar from the sun-dried tomatoes.
