By: Tasty, Melissa Boyajian

Ingredients (for 4 servings)
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken tenders (455 g)
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic
16 fl oz low-sodium chicken broth
4 oz sun-dried tomatoes (110 g), drained
8 oz whole wheat pasta (225 g)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 oz baby spinach (85 g)
PESTO
1 clove garlic
4 oz fresh basil (110 g), roughly chopped
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons walnuts
3 oz olive oil (90 mL)
4 tablespoons fresh parmesan cheese

Preparation
For the pesto, add garlic, basil, salt, pepper, and walnuts into the bowl of a food processor.
Turn on the food processor and slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream and puree thoroughly.
Add the parmesan and pulse to incorporate. Set aside.
In a large pot, heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Season chicken and brown on both sides. Cook thoroughly for 8-10 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
Sauté garlic for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the chicken broth, sun-dried tomatoes, pasta, salt, and red pepper flakes and mix until combined. Cover.
Bring liquid to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until pasta is al dente.
Add spinach and stir until wilted.
Add cooked chicken and pesto.
Serve immediately.
Enjoy!
