This is my new favorite!!! I will definitely be making this on a regular basis. 

There’s pasta, chicken and cheese. Need I say more? It’s quick and easy to make, plus it is filling.

I used a rotisserie chicken (just the breasts) because I was lazy. It would also be great with some seasoned and baked chicken breasts.

I have become a huge fan of meal prep. This includes baking some boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I do it on Sunday, then I have chicken ready for a few days. 

I do a lot of cooking with chicken, so it never goes to waste. I also love making a quick and easy chicken salad for lunch. 

I love that there is spinach in this dish. I didn’t used to like it as a child, but that has changed. For one thing, I don’t think there’s much flavor to spinach. It’s a great way to sneak in a serving of vegetables. 

This dish makes 6 servings and it’s only 6 Freestyle points per serving.
