Skillet Chicken with Pasta, Spinach and Garlic Oil

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I've been trying to test a series of skillet suppers for quick and easy weeknight meals. It has been slow going because I've overbooked my calendar, but I am slogging my way through the pile of recipes with the intent of of sharing the best of them with you. Hopefully, that will be before school starts. Tonight's recipe is one of a series that I found in a BuzzFeed article that featured stovetop chicken dishes. The recipe is a keeper and I think all but the youngest members of your family will enjoy it. Feel free to substitute thigh meat for the breast meat specified in the recipe and use any type of pasta that you enjoy. I hope you will give this recipe a try. You can have this dish on the table in 30 minutes and it makes a lovely supper. Here is the recipe.
