Spinach artichoke stuffed chicken is an easy-to-make chicken dish featuring all the warm, gooey, rich flavors of cheesy spinach and artichoke dip! You're gonna love it!
One of my favorite restaurant appetizers is creamy Spinach and Artichoke Dip. Warm, gooey and served with toasty pita or crisp tortilla chips, this dip is always a guaranteed winner. It's absolutely heavenly and addictive. So I've often wondered how I could turn this favorite of mine into an easy meal idea I could cook at home.
And I think I've found the answer: healthy chicken breasts stuffed with a cheesy spinach and artichoke mixture! The recipe is surprisingly easy, the dish takes only about 30 minutes to make.
Traditional stuffed chicken recipes often require pounding out the chicken with a mallet, spreading on an even layer of filling, and then rolling up the chicken. This can take a while and lead to a lot of frustration. The secret to this easy recipe is to just cut a long "pocket" into the side of each chicken breast instead, perfect for stuffing. The thick, rich spinach-artichoke mixture stays put throughout cooking, even though it's open on one side.
The best part about this dish: it turns same-old chicken into something really unique and full of rich, satisfying flavors. I love cooking this up on cold nights. It's got all of the wonderful, familiar flavors of my favorite creamy spinach and artichoke dip, but it's healthy enough to eat any night of the week!
