Sounds so good! From Taste of Home cooking school recipe collection. Somebody make this so that I can live vicariously through you, since spinach is not allowed to enter my home!!

This was super good! I used rice-a-roni and halved grape tomatoes. I also marinated the chicken in the italian dressing rather than just brushing it on. Next time I think I will crumble a little bit of feta or goat cheese on top. You need a really big bowl to mix all of this up because the spinach doesn't wilt right away!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brush chicken with 2 teaspoons of the salad dressing.
  2. Grill or broil chicken, turning once, for 20 to 25 minutes or until juices run clear.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare rice pilaf mix according to package directions.
  4. Combine hot cooked rice with remaining salad dressing, spinach, tomatoes and olives; stir until spinach is slightly wilted.
  5. Spoon rice mixture onto serving plates; top with sliced chicken breast.
