Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken

Have your dip and eat it too with this Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken!

Today is my blog's 10th birthday! I cannot believe I have blogged for 10 years. 10 years worth of recipes. What's funny to me is that this is the first time I will add the label for artichokes as an ingredient. In 10 years of blogging, I've never posted a recipe with artichokes!

I've been on a spinach artichoke streak lately where it's what I'm craving and so I've tried out a few recipes that are not specifically spinach artichoke dip because that's basically the only way I've ever eaten it. I have been trying to eat less red meat (still) and I'm trying to find new chicken recipes that don't involve pasta. I really enjoyed this recipe. I would love to try my hand at handling a fresh artichoke soon!

What you need:
  • 2 to 3 chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise to make thinner pieces
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 oz. fresh spinach (or more)
  • 1 jar (12 oz.) quartered artichoke hearts in water, drained
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to skillet.
  2. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
  3. Meanwhile, chop spinach and artichoke hearts.
  4. Set aside cooked chicken and add butter to the skillet.
  5. Add garlic and saute over medium for about 30 seconds.
  6. Add chicken broth and scrape up the browned bits from the bottom.
  7. Add sour cream and cream cheese. Stir until cream cheese has melted and sauce is smooth.
  8. Add milk and stir until smooth. Then add Parmesan, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Heat and whisk for a few more minutes. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Then add artichoke hearts.
  10. Serve chicken topped with sauce.

For a fun new way to make chicken, these Pickle Brined Chicken Tenders are awesome! Back For Seconds shared this very tasty-looking Spinach Artichoke Dip Pizza that uses crescent rolls for a crust.
