Spinach-Artichoke-Stuffed-Chicken-Breast-15

Spinach artichoke dip meets baked chicken! These juicy chicken breasts are smothered with a cheesy spinach and artichoke topping. It’s the ultimate comfort food for those following a keto or low-carb lifestyle, and will be loved by everyone in the family regardless of diet! Serve with a side of roasted broccoli or asparagus, or on top of cauliflower rice.

Ingredients

  • ½ (10 ounce) package frozen spinach
  • 1 (4 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ (14 ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 (8 ounce)s boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • Step 1Microwave spinach in a medium bowl until warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool slightly and squeeze to remove excess moisture.
  • Step 2Return spinach to the bowl. Mix in cream cheese, artichoke hearts, Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, garlic powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Step 3Pound chicken breasts to an even thickness, no more than 1-inch-thick. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Step 4Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Step 5Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken breasts in the hot oil, 2 to 3 minutes, working in batches if necessary. Place chicken breasts in a large baking dish. Spread spinach-artichoke mixture on top of each breast.
  • Step 6Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 20 to 22 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Top breasts with the mozzarella cheese and continue baking until cheese has melted, 1 to 2 more minutes.

Cook’s Note:

I normally use chicken breasts that are about 8 to 10 ounces.
