A note about serious food allergies

There's nothing like chicken thighs: they're juicy, rich in flavor, and the perpetual underdogs in the chicken wars between thighs and breasts and wings. But take the chance and order them up there; you won't be disappointed in this creamy and tangy mix of pasta, chicken, and sauce. All we are saying, is give chicken thighs a chance.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using diced chicken breasts, follow same instructions as diced chicken thighs, stirring occasionally until lightly browned and chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry and season both sides with blackening seasoning and a pinch of salt. Follow same instructions as diced chicken thighs in Step 3, cooking until lightly browned and shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  • If using steak strips, pat dry, coarsely chop, and season with blackening seasoning and ¼ tsp. salt. Follow same instructions as diced chicken thighs in Step 3, stirring occasionally until lightly browned and steak strips reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water in medium pot is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes.

    Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside.

    While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop spinach.

    Mince garlic.

    Pat diced chicken thighs dry, and season all over with blackening seasoning and 1/4 tsp. salt. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add chicken to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Stir garlic and tomato puree into hot pan until combined. Then cook until fragrant, 30-60 seconds.

    Add cream sauce base, pesto, half the reserved pasta cooking water (reserve remaining for adjusting), 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, cook until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Stir in spinach until combined and wilted, 1-2 minutes.

  5. 5

    Add Pasta and Finish Dish

    Stir pasta and a pinch of salt into hot pan until coated and heated through, 30-60 seconds.

    If too thick, add remaining pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with cheese. Bon appétit!
