I have been enjoying baked chicken dishes lately, the kind where you throw the chicken and other ingredients into a pan and bake it all at once! They are super easy to make and you can pack them with flavour like in this Tuscan inspired baked chicken with spinach, artichoke hearts and sundried tomatoes along with plenty of melted mozzarella and parmesan cheese! The spinach with release some liquids so I like to serve this over rice or pasta to soak it all up. You can easily modify this recipe with the addition on other Mediterranean flavours like olives, onions, feta, etc.
