A note about serious food allergies

Maybe “eat your spinach” has always been a threat to you, not a promise, but in this meal, we swear, spinach is a treat. How could it not be, turned into a creamy, cheesy, pesto-y sauce that enrobes the chicken with fantastic flavor? Eat your spinach, it turns out, was right all along!

  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3, and 4, cooking until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using filets mignon, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3, and 4, cooking until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting in hot oven until steaks reach a minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using New York strip steak, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3, and 4, cooking until browned, 2-3 minutes per side, then roasting in hot oven until steaks reach a minimum internal temperature, 9-11 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Place butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until melted, 30-60 seconds.

    While butter melts, slice potatoes into 1/4" rounds.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with blackening seasoning.

  2. 2

    Start the Potatoes

    To bowl with melted butter, add potatoes, garlic salt, half the cheese (reserve remaining for spinach), and a pinch of pepper. Gently stir to combine.

    Transfer potatoes to prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer on one side of baking sheet (some overlap is OK).

    Roast in hot oven until lightly browned and tender, 15-20 minutes.

    Potatoes will finish cooking in a later step.

    While potatoes roast, sear chicken.

  3. 3

    Sear the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step.

  4. 4

    Finish the Potatoes and Chicken

    After 15-20 minutes, carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Transfer chicken to empty space. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Roast again in hot oven until potatoes are tender and browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.

    While potatoes and chicken roast, continue recipe.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to sear chicken to medium heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and spinach to hot pan. Stir occasionally until wilted, 1-2 minutes.

    Add cream base, remaining cheese, pesto, and a pinch of pepper. Stir occasionally until warmed through and slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken with sauce. Bon appétit!
