In this household, we LOVE anything that involves the combo of spinach and artichokes. From my healthy Baked Chicken with Spinach and Artichokes Recipe to my not so healthy Spinach Artichoke Pasta Alfredo Casserole, it is one of our favorite meal concoctions that we go back to time and time again.

HOW TO MAKE SPINACH ARTICHOKE CHICKEN

  • We add our chicken breasts to a hot oiled skillet and cook until done; remove chicken breasts from the skillet and set aside.
  • Follow up with a bit of butter and garlic, then deglaze the skillet with either wine or chicken broth – your choice. (Wine, please! )
  • Add chopped marinated artichokes to the skillet; cook for a couple minutes and stir in baby spinach. Cook for a minute or two before pouring in some half & half (or cream, or whole milk) AND cheese.
  • Transfer chicken breasts back into the skillet; cook for several minutes and serve.

Simple, SO darn tasty, and very satisfying. You’ll see.

I like to serve it with a big side of my Radish and Cucumber Salad, but my husband prefers a big bowl of pasta. The choice is yours, but the salad will help balance things out.

    This was great and also a life saver! I CAN NOT RALLY. to go to the grocery store these days for some reason! Turns out I had all these ingredients in the house already … some frozen chicken thighs, a half a bag of frozen spinach, and can of artichoke hearts. Add the last glug of a bottle of rosé and some half-and-half and bingo, dinner! I floured the chicken pieces slightly before putting them in the skillet and also used Italian seasoning. Worked great!
