I made something I think you are going to simply love. This. Spinach Artichoke Chicken.

 

Spinach Artichoke Chicken Recipe from addapinch.com

Oh my goodness gracious is it amazing! Think your favorite spinach artichoke dip all over the top of baked chicken.

Yeah, it really is out of this world.

There’s something so comforting about this spinach artichoke chicken that it has really become one of our favorite ways to eat chicken now. While the ingredients list doesn’t specify, I like to use lower fat ingredients for the topping such as part-skim mozzarella cheese, fat-free Greek yogurt, and a light mayonnaise. Of course, use what you prefer!

And luckily, it is one of the easiest things to make that you can think of!

Spinach Artichoke Chicken Recipe from addapinch.com

You just throw your chicken into a baking dish, then mix up your spinach artichoke topping and pour it on top. Bake it and then watch it disappear.

How simple is that?

The chicken turns out so flavorful and tender. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

It’s great to get kids to eat their vegetables, too.

Here’s the recipe for my Spinach Artichoke Chicken. It’s a keeper!

    This was great! Used to love making spinach artichoke dip but since I started eating lactopaleo I haven’t made it! I used too much chicken (3.25lbs) and the ratio was a bit off so next time I’ll make sure to use a bit less or add more spinach/artichoke! yum!

    I wonder if I can use all greek yogurt and omit the mayo??

  4. 73

    Made this last night and it was a hit! I used bone-in thighs and cooked them for 25 minutes before adding the dip ingredients. Loved it!

  5. 74

    How can I make this for one to two people? Im just learning how to cook…my bf wont probably eat this but I want to.

    I have a question. I’m making this tonight for my family. I was wondering, if I were to bake the chicken like you say, then slice it, and make a layer of the dip on the bottom, then the chicken evenly spread out, then another layer of the dip, would it ruin it?

    What a great idea – thanks for the recipe! I liked it just the way it is, but since I have a hubby and 4 kids, rarely do we come to a consensus. Usually someone has something to suggest.

    Next time (oh, there will be a next time!), I will saute the shallots to soften them a bit first. I will add a bit more “wet” ingredients, or just up the amount of greek yogurt. Hubby felt it wasn’t salty enough, but BOO on him because the rest of us don’t have that “need”. :)

    I enjoyed preparing AND eating it – thank you! All of us enjoyed it, though I can barely count the hubby since he busted out a bag of tortilla chips and dug in. LOL

    We made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. I do have a few questions: What do you mean by 8 chicken breasts? Some people consider one chicken one breast, while others consider that two breasts. How many pounds of chicken, really? How small do you cut the pieces. I think maybe our pieces were too large, because by the allotted time the chicken was still raw. So we put it back in the oven for 22 minutes.
    I will make it again, because the taste was amazing!

    Wishing you a terrific week… :)

      Each chicken has two breast, just like women do. Did you cook the chicken by itself for 15 minutes, then added the sauce then cook for another 22 minutes?

  10. 81

    Hi this looks fab! Was curiois if i could xnay the mayo & double the greek yogurt? Or would that not work
    At all? Thank you!

    • 82

      I’ve not tried it that way, Jessica so I can’t say what the final result would be. However, it is definitely worth a try!

  11. 83

    HI! I just wanted to let you know that I shared this with my readers after making it, and linked it back to you! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  12. 84

    This is in the oven RIGHT NOW and smells so good. Can’t wait!

  13. 85

    Ever tried this in a slow cooker?

  14. 86

    Prepping this recipe for dinner tonight .. exactly as it was in the recipe !!!!
    I’m amazed how people want to change it and ask if they can do this instead of ????

    Just make it the way it was stated!!!!

    Sorry for venting, but it seems every blog has someone asking if they can change it!!

    I love all the ingredients so I’m sure I’ll be making this over and over !!

    Thank you Robyn !!!

    This sounds wonderful! Definitely going to try it tomorrow night. Do you know if you could freeze leftovers? Thanks!

    Thanks for the recipe! It was good. I just filled the bottom of my baking pan with one layer of frozen chicken tenders, but next time will add another layer. Not that I couldn’t eat the sauce plain…but it makes me feel better if I’m at least eating some lean protein with it!

  17. 89

    Made this tonight with sour cream instead of yogurt. Even my husband, who HATES mayo and sour cream, loved it! He said he’d like it if I made it again. Next time I’ll add more cheese since I’m a cheeseaholic ^_^

    Just made and served this for dinner and think it’s quite tasty! I did make subs based on what I had available. Used thin sliced chicken breast cutlets, sour cream instead of greek yogurt, mayo, added 1/3 cup cream cheese, 2 small jars marinated artichoke hearts, 1 square pkg frozen chopped spinach, shredded Italian cheese blend, onion instead of shallots. garlic and garlic powder, and lots of extra parmesan! After cooking the cutlets alone, I kept the natural juices in with the chicke when I added spinach mixture cause we like saucy dishes and needed a bit extra sauce for the ziti I was serving it over! I give 4.5 stars!! Thanks for such an easy 1 pan recipe!!

  19. 91

    Do you chop up the artichoke?

    I Love Artichokes says:

    This recipe was delicious! I made it for myself using 2 chicken breasts which meant the toppings dominated. Although, I do have a small stomach and this is a RICH recipe, I could only finish half of a chicken breast and the only side I made to pair with this meal was stuffing (which I also did not finish). Next time I think I will cut the mayo, yogurt, and cheese ingredients in half.

    Thank you for the recipe!

    Still wondering about how much chicken. Is it boneless or bone in? Is it whole breast or split breast? Does sound good. Thanks

    • 94

      Hi Pat,
      I usually use 8 chicken breasts for this recipe. Sometimes, I’ve used bone in, but I generally prefer to use boneless.

      Hope you enjoy it!

  22. 95

    Nice recipe. Thank you and Happy New Year!

  23. 96

    Oh my gosh! This looks delicious. I’ll definitely try this.

  24. 97

    Overall we loved it. Thought it needed a little something so I added a little lemon juice which I think was exactly what it needed. Will be making this again! Thank you for a great recipe!

    This recipe had been printed and posted at my gym as a healthy recipe and when I keyed it in to Weight Watchers (Recipe Builder) it is actually not too bad…about 8 points on the current plan. It is really easy and delicious. I used small sized chicken breasts to control portions and light mayo. I also added more garlic than it called for because we love garlic. Everything else was followed as listed in the recipe. We served it over whole wheat spaghetti noodles. Delicious!

      Thanks so much, Chris for your comment. I appreciate your updating about the Weight Watchers points, too! Great info!

      Thanks,

    This was AWESOME! Did tweak some things as that is my nature when it comes to recipes…I used only 6 chicken breasts, 1 small container of greek yogurt (NO MAYO), added a can of tomotoes with green chillies, changed the shallots to a yellow onion and added some red pepper flakes to give it a little kick. Tossed it all into the crockpot on low for 7-8 hours and shredded it when it was done. DELICIOUS! Will be doing this one again!

  27. 101

    So my family absolutely gobbled this up! My only question is what is the consistency of the sauce/covering supposed to be? When I mixed it all together there was definitely no pouring involved. I used a spatula to spread the topping. I thought it would have been a bit more pourable (is that a word? lol). Thoughts?

    Veprery good reciepe. Except I tweeked mine a bit. I used boiled or rotersarie chicken and added red potatoes. super delicious. I aslo added a cup Of canola oil mayo and another cup of yogart and added some lemon juice. I also cooked the spinach in garlic and onion before mixing it together. So pleased and so glad I found Ur recipe. :-)

  29. 103

    I used about 2.5 lbs. of chicken tenders. I would probably top with a little more cheese next time I make it. Would be easy to make the topping ahead of time, then assemble and bake near dinner time.

  30. 104

    Just made this. I used a cut up chicken and baked 35 mins before adding sauce. Served with noodles that I topped with creamy vegetables and the sauce/fat from the bottom of the pan. Yummy! My husband loved it, and although he never complains, his stepmother is practically a gourmet cook, so there’s a very high standard. Lol. Next time I’ll add sliced mushrooms to the sauce. Thanks. This one is a keeper!

  31. 105

    I did 1/2 as much chicken cut up into bite sized pieces and the same amount of everything else === delicious!!! plus leftovers for hubbies dinner and lunches for me to take to work… gonna definately do this one again
