Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe just sort of came together one night when I was feeling creative. My cousin came over

for dinner and he loved it so much that I had to write down the recipe so that I could make it for him again.


Ingredients You'll Need

Grilled Chicken:
1 lb thin sliced boneless chicken cutlets
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
Olive oil cooking spray

Sauce:
1 tbsp olive oil
10 oz white button mushrooms (sliced)
pinch of black pepper
pinch of white pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
15 oz can white clam sauce
9oz bag fresh spinach (washed and large stems removed)

Tortellini:
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 lb spinach tortellini
1/2 lb three cheese tortellini
1 tbsp butter

Grated Parmesan Cheese to taste


Directions

Trim & clean chicken well. Drizzle with 1 tbsp lemon juice & sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Heat a stovetop grill pan and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Grill chicken so that it is fully


cooked, but still juicy. Cut into strips & set aside.


Saute mushrooms in olive oil until tender and slightly browned. Sprinkle with black pepper & white pepper. Add garlic and saute for about a minute. Add clam sauce and bring to a boil. Add spinach leaves to sauce & drizzle with 1 tbsp lemon juice. Cook until spinach wilts and is tender.


Bring water and salt to a boil & add tortellini. Cook until al dente. Strain tortellini and put in


a large bowl. Add butter and mix to coat tortellini.


Add chicken to tortellini and pour sauce over all. Mix together and serve sprinkled with grated parmesan cheese.

him again.
