I’ve had dip on the brain.  Thank you, Super Bowl!  I guess that’s why I’ve been dreaming about spinach and artichoke dip.  Gosh, that stuff is good!  What’s not to like about creamy, cheesy goodness mixed with spinach and artichokes?  I wanted to satisfy my craving for spinach and artichoke dip without involving a big bowl of chips or crackers.  So I included it in an entrée instead!

I had to figure out how to do that without whipping up a crowd-sized batch of dip.  Easy!  I used groceries from Hungryroot to create a simple stuffed chicken made with a creamy, spinach and artichoke dip inspired filling!  Five ingredients is all it took to make this delicious stuffed chicken recipe and I didn’t even have to leave the house to get them!

This recipe is so easy and makes a great weeknight meal!  Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are slit open, then stuffed with a simple garlic + herb cream cheese, mozzarella, baby spinach, and artichoke mixture.  Once prepped, they’re baked for 20 minutes, or until they’re completely cooked through.

Baked Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Chicken

This easy meal has all of the flavor of spinach and artichoke dip wrapped up in a juicy chicken breast.  It takes under 30 minutes to make and, unlike spinach and artichoke dip, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to make it!

First, we need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees and slit the chicken breasts about 3/4 of the way through to create a pocket.  Then, we’re going to pat the chicken dry and season both sides with salt and pepper.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Place the chicken in the skillet and sear on both sides.  Once the chicken is golden brown on both sides, remove from the pan and set aside.

Then, we’re going to add the garlic + herb cream cheese, artichokes, spinach, and cheese to a mixing bowl.  Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.

Spoon the mixture into each chicken breast (depending on the size of the chicken, you might end up with extra filling) and place it into a greased baking dish.

Bake the chicken in the oven for 20 minutes, or until it’s completely cooked through, and serve.  Complete this meal with a side salad, rice, or some simple, buttery noodles.
