How to make it

  • Melt butter in a 10 by 15 inch rimmed baking pan in a 400 degree (F) oven; then remove pan from oven.
  • Stir onion, garlic, basil, and pepper into butter.
  • Place chicken, skin side down, in butter mixture; then turn over.
  • Bake, uncovered, until meat near bone is no longer pink when slashed (about 45 minutes).
  • While chicken bakes, thaw spinach: place it in a 2 to 3 quart baking dish, cover, and set in oven with chicken for about 30 minutes (after about 15 minutes, break into chunks with a fork to speed thawing).
  • Pour thawed spinach into a colander or cheesecloth; squeeze out liquid.
  • Ten minutes before chicken is done, cook linguine in a large quantity of boiling salted water until al dente (about 13 minutes).
  • Drain.
  • When chicken is done, lift from pan and keep warm.
  • Add spinach to pan and stir to scrape browned bits free.
  • Add pasta and cheese; lift with 2 forks to mix well.
  • Season to taste with salt.
  • To serve, mound a portion of the pasta mixture on each of 4 dinner plates; flank with 2 pieces of chicken and an orange wedge.
  • Before eating, squeeze orange over chicken and pasta.
