Easy, delicious, healthy (well sort of...) homemade breaded chicken with lemon butter pasta...doesn't the sound of that warm you up?! Annnnd make you want to lick your lips?! Hot damn this recipe makes me happy!

This recipe IS easy but takes a little bit of time to come together because of the chicken. To save time you can buy pre-made breaded chicken but it probably won't taste as good ;)


  • 4 thin chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs (I made my own using bread and blended it in my magic bullet...season with italian seasoning)
  • 2 eggs; whisked
  • Angel hair pasta
  • 1 cup cherry tomatos
  • 1/2 red onion; chopped
  • 1 medium bag of pre-washed fresh spinach
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup Prego fresh mushroom pasta sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp of garlic salt
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp salt free butter
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Butter an 11 x 7-inch or a 9-inch baking pan baking dish 
  • In 3 bowls, put flour, eggs (whisked), and bread crumbs in their own bowls. 
  • Dip chicken in flour first, then in whisked eggs, and lastly cover the entire chicken breast with bread crumb mix. Salt and pepper then place on buttered plan. Make sure chicken breasts are not touching each other. 
  • Bake uncovered for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked though (baking time will vary depending on how thin the chicken is).
  • Boil water with salt and cook pasta. Follow the cook time on the packaging. I cooked the pasta and turned off the stove to keep it warm. Right before serving drain extra water in strainer. 
  • In a separate skillet, toss in chopped onions, minced garlic, cherry tomatoes, and spinach. Cook until onions are brown and spinach is wilted. Salt and pepper to taste and squeeze some lemon juice on top of ingredients. 
  • In a large bowl, mix drained pasta with butter then toss in spinach, onion, tomato mix. 
  • Heat up Prego fresh mushroom pasta sauce to pour on top of the pasta. Take chicken out of the oven and cut up into thin strips to place on top of pasta.
  • All finished and ready to serve!
