Lemon Chicken Spinach Pasta {Gluten Free} - Gluten free pasta tossed with tender chicken, fresh baby spinach, lemon and Pecorino Romano cheese.
My family and I do not suffer from Celiac Disease; nor do we follow a Gluten Free Diet. However, I wanted to try using gluten free pasta in one of my recipes to see if there was a difference as we may have wheat allergies; which causes that bloated feeling after eating wheat products found in pasta and bread.

How do you make Lemon Spinach Chicken Pasta?

For this recipe you’ll need gluten free pasta, boneless chicken breasts, EVOO, baby spinach, lemon, chicken broth and grated Pecorino Romano cheese.  Start by cooking the pasta according to package instructions. You want to watch gluten free pasta while it’s cooking, because some brands do not hold their shape as well as regular pasta. 

While pasta is cooking, heat your grill or indoor grill pan and grill your chicken until cooked through. Approximately 5-10 minutes depending on thickness; then slice chicken into strips. In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat and add the spinach. Allow the spinach to begin to wilt; then add the lemon zest and juice, chicken broth, the cooked pasta and chicken. Mix together; then stir in the cheese.

I have to say that not only was this recipe for Gluten Free Lemon Chicken Spinach Pasta delicious, we also all felt great after eating it. The meal was very satisfying and I loved the lemony flavor combined with the grilled chicken and fresh spinach.

I did find that the more you stirred the pasta, the noodles broke apart easier and didn’t hold their shape like regular pasta, but that could have just been the brand I used. This is a fantastic meal to make during the week and to even speed up your food prep, I would grill your chicken the night before. ~Enjoy!

    Carrie,
    I’ve never had a reason to try GF pasta, but I love lemon pasta and chicken with spinach–so I think this would be right up my alley.
    Thanks!
