  2. Coat the seasoned chicken in the flour and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crispy then remove to paper towel to drain.

  9. Add the cheese and spinach to the skillet and lower the heat, simmering for approximately 2 minutes.
  10. Now, add in the pasta, chicken and bacon, lightly mixing until combined. Top with additional cheese before serving if desired
