Chicken Florentine Pasta

This post is sponsored by Stella® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

With a new baby in the house, it has become even more challenging to get dinner on the table, so I find myself looking for more and more quick meals and time saving solutions.  At the same time, I don’t want to sacrifice taste and quantity.  Today I’m sharing a recipe for Chicken Florentine Pasta.  It is the perfect example of a quick and easy meal that tastes like it came from a gourmet restaurant, and it shows must how much you can do with a few good ingredients and a little creativity.

The key to this recipe is a a few fresh ingredients like chicken and cheeses. With Stella® cheeses you can transform any traditional dish or cheese plate into a gourmet experience. They make cheese in block form, as well as products that are already grated, and you can find everything from mozzarella and parmesan to asiago cheese.

Stella® cheeses are flavorful and combine old world craftsmanship with rich dairy heritage, dating back to 1923. Stella® Fresh Mozzarella Cheese offers a fresh, milky flavor and soft, delicate texture, reminiscent of the fresh mozzarella originally handmade in the Italian countryside. Its subtle, milky flavors pairs well with crisp, acidic wines.

You’ll find Stella cheeses in the section where fresh cheeses are kept.  This is usually somewhere near your produce and other fresh ingredients.  I bought mine at Kroger.

The cheeses that are already grated are an obvious convenience, but if you have a little time, grating it yourself really gives your dish that extra homemade touch!

Grilling your chicken is another way to add tons of flavor!  When we have grilled chicken, we always have leftovers, and I enjoy cutting up the leftovers and putting it in a dish like this.  It is a great way to repurpose the leftovers and not waste them.  And it is also a time saver!

Finally, the base of the sauce used in this dish is actually a spinach dip.  This should be made the night before, and if you already have leftover spinach dip from a party, this is a great way to use the leftovers.  You can also purchase spinach dip already made.  Your local grocery store should have a few options for you, include a fresh made version.


Look for Stella® Fresh Mozzarella Cheese at your grocer and add flavor and freshness to your dish.

  11. It looks like a good meal to keep in the freezer and take out when you’re pressed for time.

  12. Whenever we make casserole dishes like this, we use the opportunity to clear the cupboards of things that have been there too long. Every casserole needs some fillers!!!!

  17. I love chicken and pasta. In fact most of us do around here! Only problem is this crazy diet I am on. I cant eat any cheese any way because of gallbladder problems have me limited. Then I am trying to lose weight which I should have lost when my gallbladder started acting up but nothing. So I have to cut out all carbs as well and limit sugary drinks and soda. I think I will make this however and just leave out the pasta ? Will it still be as good as you made it look? Have you tried it without the pasta? Thank you in advance!
