Tuscan Garlic Chicken

I saw this on a re-run of the Tony Danza Show this morning, and it sure looks good!

Tuscan Garlic Chicken
Prepared on the show by Olive Garden Executive Chef Paolo - 4/27/05

3 lb(s) Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cup(s) Flour, plus 1 tablespoon
1 Tbsp Salt
2 tsp Black pepper
2 tsp Italian herb seasoning
1 lb(s) Penne pasta
1 Tbsp Garlic, chopped
1 Red pepper, julienne cut
1/2 cup(s) White wine
1/2 lb(s) Whole leaf spinach, stemmed
12 oz Heavy cream
1 cup(s) Parmesan cheese, grated


Preparing the Chicken:
- Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, salt, black pepper and Italian herb seasoning in a shallow dish.
- Dredge chicken in the mixture, shaking off any excess.
- When finished, transfer the skillet to a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. Cook for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
- Sauté the chicken in batches, in a large, nonstick, ovenproof skillet - with enough oil to coat - over medium-high heat for about two to three minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crisp.

Preparing the Pasta:
- Cook pasta al dente (or according to package instructions).
- Drain and set aside until needed.

Preparing the Sauce:
- While the pasta is cooking, heat 1/2 to 1 fluid ounce of oil in a sauce pan. Add the garlic and the red pepper and cook for approximately one minute.
- Slowly add remaining one tablespoon of flour and stir to combine.
- Next add the white wine and bring to a boil for about one minute. Add the spinach and the cream and bring to a boil. The sauce is done cooking when the spinach becomes wilted. Complete by stirring in the parmesan cheese.

Preparing Tuscan Garlic Chicken Entrée:
- Partly coat the pasta with the sauce, transfer to a large bowl (or individual dishes) and then top with the chicken, the remaining sauce and extra parmesan cheese. Serve and enjoy.
