Chicken and Spinach Pasta Bake

A simple and tasty Chicken and Spinach Pasta Bake recipe that can be thrown together quickly – and eaten in even less time!

If you’re in need of a fast dinner idea for a busy weeknight, then look no further than this chicken pasta bake. It doesn’t take long to prepare and the kids will absolutely love it!

To create this dinner, simply start cooking the pasta, fry some onion and garlic in the frying pan, then shred a BBQ chicken.


To be frugal you could poach your own chicken rather than purchasing a BBQ chook from the supermarket.  See my tips on poaching chicken here.


You can make this meal in advance and freeze it! That way you will have a quick and easy dinner on hand for nights when you aren’t well or don’t feel like cooking.
