Slow Cooker Spinach Artichoke Chicken Recipe

Spinach and Artichoke Chicken and Crock Pot Option

Ever had spinach artichoke dip in a restaurant? This recipe is similar to that but with more protein and no chips. I had a craving for spinach artichoke dip one night and decided to turn it into a whole dinner: spinach artichoke chicken in a slow cooker.

Spinach Artichoke Chicken

The chicken is topped with spinach, artichokes, and a mix of cheeses for a very protein rich (and low carb) quick meal that can be easily made in the Crock-Pot or on the stove.

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

This can be made in a slow cooker or just baked in the oven for about an hour.

A protein packed take on spinach artichoke dip that uses chicken as a base for a delicious meal...

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs chicken breast
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 10 oz package of frozen chopped spinach, very well drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) jar of marinated artichoke hearts
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup mozzarella Cheese

Instructions

  1. Chop the chicken into bite-size pieces.
  2. Season the chicken with garlic powder, salt, and pepper and place in Crock-Pot for 2 hours on high or 4 hours on low.
  3. When the chicken is almost cooked, add the well drained spinach, artichoke hearts, cream cheese, and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Cook for another hour until the cheeses are well and stir to incorporate flavors.
  5. Top with mozzarella cheese and serve.

Notes

If you'd rather bake this in the oven, simply combine all ingredients except the mozzarella cheese and cook it at 375°F for about an hour, adding mozzarella to the top for the last 10 minutes.
