This refreshingly simple one-dish meal strawberries, spinach, mozzarella balls and chicken drizzled with a light vinaigrette made with white grape juice.
Recipe Cost for 4 People: $12.41 ($3.10/serving)*
Preparation Time: 45 minutes
¼ cup white grape juice
2 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
8 oz whole wheat penne pasta
8 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 pound fresh strawberries
6 oz fresh spinach
4 oz fresh mozzarella, cherry-size balls
¼ cup fresh basil
Whisk together vinaigrette ingredients; set aside. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and let cool. While pasta is cooking, coat large skillet with cooking spray and cook chicken breast over medium heat. Turn chicken several times, until done (about 15-20 minutes). When cool enough to handle, cut chicken into bite-size chunks. Slice strawberries and cut basil into small strips (chiffonade). In a large bowl, toss pasta, chicken, mozzarella, strawberries and dressing.
To serve: Arrange spinach on four plates. Divide pasta mix evenly on top of spinach. Sprinkle with chopped basil.
Complete this Plate: Serve with Concord grape juice.
