Spinach Artichoke Chicken Breasts

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.

  • 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 awesome! My family loved it just as the recipe was written! Didn’t have to change a thing. Thanks for sharing

      That’s great to hear! I’m very glad you and your family enjoyed it! Thank you for chiming in! 🙂

  2. Honestly, you can omit the cheese in this recipe. Both lighter and tastes better without. It’s really good with just the heavy cream. I used 8 chicken thighs, 5 cloves of garlic, added 12 ozs of sliced sauted baby bellas along with the artichokes and only used a big handful of spinach. Extra salt and pepper. Yummy.

  3. Diced up the chicken, doubled the sauce and served over pasta. Huge hit with the family and will become a regular in the rotation. Fantastic flavor!

  4. This was perfection! An entire meal all in one pot that was absolutely delicious! Thanks for such an amazing recipe that my whole family loved.

  5. 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!

  6. Great dish! I followed the recipe as is (opted for white wine to deglaze and half & half for the cream) and it turned out delicious.
