Spinach and artichoke dip is one of my favourite snacks and I hardly need an excuse to keep trying to enjoy it for dinner and this spinach and artichoke baked chicken is the perfect to do so! This recipe is quite literally chicken breasts topped with spinach and artichoke dip that is baked in the oven until the chicken is cooked and all of the cheese in the dip has melted! Yum! Not only is it super easy to make, but it’s also low-carb, gluten-free and therefore healthy… oh who am I kidding, I’m not going to use that as a reason to make this, I’m going to make it because I want to!

hmmm, this might actually get my husband to eat spinach…
Love every recipe of yours that I have tried! This looks like another winner! Can I use canned artichokes or should it be fresh?
Canned or jarred artichokes work well!
Thanks Kevin. I have a jar in my pantry that I was hoping to use. Will be making tonight, can’t wait!
Just as I expected, another excellent recipe from you! Only thing I did different was to throw in some shiitake mushrooms that needed to be used. My compliments!

The kids may actually eat this and I love that you sneak in the spinach and artichoke. I may have to try that tactic on other cheesy dishes.

Can’t believe how easy and quick this was to make, and how very delish!!
This was delicious! I sautéed the chicken first. Very tasty will make again. If you don’t have all the ingredients to make spinach dip part you can use premise spinach artichoke dip like I did and definitely used Swiss cheese. I will make again.

Any suggestions for a side dish?
I was thinking of serving mine with pearled couscous or white rice. Maybe roasted carrots too!
What size baking dish should I use?
Use a pan that allows the chicken to be in a single layer in the bottom of the pan, an 8×8 inch pan should be good for 1 pound of chicken breasts.
