Crockpot Spinach & Artichoke Chicken

Ever had spinach and artichoke dip in a restaurant? This recipe is similar to that but with more protein and less chips. I had a craving for spinach & artichoke dip one night and decided to turn it in to a whole dinner.

Some kids might not like the strong flavors in the artichokes, but mine really liked this recipe. We served with homemade Caesar salad and it was wonderful!

    This is so goo.  I did the same thing about a month ago.  I really wanted spinach artichoke dip, so I made it and served it over sliced chicken breasts.  It was great, but I think next time I’ll just mix it right in.

    This sounds great. I love artichoke but haven’t introduced it too often to the kids. I like that all of your recipes have looked easy so far. As an overwhelmed mama, I thank you!

      My daughter learned to love artichokes after first having them in spinach and artichoke dip, so I’d say give it a try!

    I don’t own a crock pot, but I think I’ll try this in my dutch oven in the oven!  Looking forward to it.

    Do you think you could modify this recipe to be dairy free?  How do you think coconut milk would work in replacing cheese?

    do you just eat this on it’s own?  Or what do you serve with it?  My knee jerk reaction is picturing it over rice (can you tell I’m new to being grain free?)

      You know what this would be amazing with…spaghetti squash! I’m going to try it with Caesar salad tonight, though.

      I think if you want to go totally grain-free, you can’t have rice either, or so my paleo husband says.

    My friend had us over for dinner the other day and made this in a skillet instead of crock pot.  It was delicious and the kids loved it too!!
