  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts halves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped into small pieces
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 10.75 oz can undiluted cream of chicken -OR- cream of mushroom soup (low sodium preferred)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach defrosted and very well drained
  • 2 cloves garlic minced


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 11 x 7-inch baking pan.
  • Slice each breast portion in half lengthwise--do this as if you are going to butterfly it but cut all the way through. Pound each piece with a meat mallet between 2 pieces of plastic wrap until they are uniform thickness--about 1/4-inch thick.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Brown chicken well on both sides; remove from pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix the artichokes, cream cheese, soup, 1 cup shredded mozzarella, Parmesan and very well drained spinach.
  • Spread HALF the dip in the bottom of the prepared pan. Place browned chicken on top, then top chicken with remaining dip. Sprinkle with the reserved 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until dip is bubbling and cheese topping is browned.


SLOW COOKER DIRECTIONS--assemble the same as main recipe. Browning the chicken is optional with this cooking method, but it will make the chicken look nicer and I recommend it. Cook about 3-5 hours on high, 5-6 hours on low. TIMES ARE APPROXIMATE AS ALL COOKERS COOK DIFFERENTLY. ALWAYS CHECK FOR DONENESS AT MINIMUM TIME!
