1 cup of sundries tomatoes 

2 tbsp Avacado oil

5 garlic cloves (chopped)

2 cups organic spinach 

3 organic chicken breasts

1/2 tspn. Red pepper flakes 

1 cup of white wine 


1. In a sauce pan, add avacado oil, white wine, garlic, and the diced tomatoes. Bring it to a boil.

2. Cut the chicken into small cubes and add to the pan. Then, boil your pasta. 

3. When the chicken is fully cooked (15 min on med. heat), add in the spinach and 3 chopped basil leaves. Add in the red pepper flakes, salt and pepper too.
