In a sauté pan over medium heat, melt butter and add chunked chicken breast. While chicken breast is cooking, add minced garlic. After about five minutes, add broth and cook additional five minutes.
Fill a large saucepan with water. Sprinkle salt in and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Bring to a rolling boil. While water is boiling, add into the pan with chicken the spinach, tomatoes and chopped pecans. Cook on low.
