I love to create from-scratch meals for my family, but sometimes it's just not feasible. Time and energy definitely play a factor in whether or not I put a fresh-cooked dinner on the table. Rather than reaching for pizza, frozen foods, or meals out (which can get really expensive for our family of seven) I love finding meals that use a combination of fresh and prepared ingredients.
This week, I made dinner with a Knorr® Side and a handful of fresh ingredients. It was a hit! Creamy, tasty, ready in about 15 minutes.
Ready for the super-easy recipe?
Spinach & Artichoke Chicken with Creamy Pasta
1 package Knorr® Pasta Sides – Parmesan
1 box (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 can (13.75 oz.) artichoke hearts, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, grilled and sliced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Prepare Knorr® Pasta Sides – Parmesan according to package directions, stirring in spinach and artichokes during last 2 minutes of cook time. Stir in sour cream.
Arrange Pasta on serving platter, then top with hot chicken and cheese.
When I made this dish for my family, I used two packages of Knorr® Pasta Sides and fresh spinach instead of frozen spinach…and I had to substitute Monterey Jack cheese for the cheddar cheese because the kids finished the last of my cheddar. Improvising!
We loved the spinach and artichoke chicken with creamy pasta – my 10 year old particularly raved about it. I loved that it was so easy to make and had two different kinds of vegetables inside. When I was at Giant Eagle picking up my Knorr® Sides, I noticed a ton of delicious-looking varieties available. I can’t wait to try another Knorr® dinner! Knorr® has a Free Recipe Book – I'll definitely be keeping Knorr® Sides in stock in the kitchen for busy nights.
