Sprinkle chicken with half each of the salt and pepper. In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown and cook chicken until no longer pink inside, about 6 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; cut into pieces.

Add remaining oil to pan; cook onion over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes and garlic; cook for 1 minute. Stir in chicken broth and wine; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in butter. Return chicken and any juices to pan; sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and return to pot, reserving 1/2 cup of the liquid.

Toss in spinach, chicken mixture and enough of the reserved cooking liquid to coat. Sprinkle with goat cheese.
