Chicken Florentine Pasta FINAL

My family loved this recipe – I have made it a few more times. What I love most about this dish is that it makes use of seasonal ingredients and is easy to make PLUS it is pretty yummy too!

What is your favorite type of pasta dish? I used Swanson Chicken Broth to marinate the chicken overnight and make the sauce. If you have never marinaded chicken overnight for a recipe you really need to try it.

I went to my local Sam’s Club to pick up Swanson Chicken Broth – they have a great deal on 6 box package of  Swanson Chicken Broth – which is great for the holidays coming up.

The first I did was marinade the chicken in a bowl of Swanson chicken broth and garlic powder – covered the bowl and place it in the fridge overnight. This helps flavor the chicken – it really adds a kick of flavor – plus it could not be any easier and there is less prep the next day!

I then made a sauce for the pasta using Swanson chicken broth with garlic and some other ingredients – this flavorful sauce is a great way to make this dish perfect for summer.

I also went to my local farmers market for locally grown cherry tomatoes.

Simply add all the ingredients into the sauce and you are done once everything is heated up.
