Artichoke Chicken

I’ve been making this Artichoke Chicken recipe since college. With only a couple of ingredients, it tastes like artichoke dip on top of chicken. This chicken dinner is baked in the oven and is an easy dinner for any night of the week.This Artichoke Chicken is a simple and easy meal that is delicious! It tastes like artichoke dip on top of chicken. the-girl-who-ate-everything.comI have a babysitter that is not only great with my kids but she completely cleans my house. Babysitter goldmine, right? I always clean before babysitters come over anyway but no matter how clean I get it, she’ll find a junk drawer to organize or laundry to do.

I don’t want her to think I’m a total slob so I try to clean as much as I can before she comes and wash every single piece of laundry I can find – which lasts for about 2 minutes before there’s already dirty laundry with a house full of 7 people.

Remember me, the worst folder ever? She has military grade folding skills.

Last time we went out, I was sure that there was nothing she could possibly find to clean or fold and I came home to my game closet organized (she said she couldn’t help herself) and about 10 items of clothing washed and folded – one being a pair of my underwear, folded in a very small tight square. This Artichoke Chicken is a simple and easy meal that is delicious! It tastes like artichoke dip on top of chicken. the-girl-who-ate-everything.comI guess I should get over it and embrace the help. What does all that have to do with this chicken? Nothing. Except that I used to make this 8 years ago when we lived in a tiny apartment with a lot less kids and a lot less to clean.

Think of your favorite artichoke dip on top of chicken. It’s delicious. The topping keeps the chicken from getting dry and the ingredients although simple, are delicious. I only made 4 breasts this time so I had leftover topping and stuck it in the oven until bubbly and served it with baguettes. So versatile.

    Totally just made these tonight with the intention of having dinner ready to heat up tomorrow night. And I took one bite and could not stop! Seriously so yummy!

  9. I need that girl in my life!!!!

  10. This is the easiest and most delicious chicken I’ve ever made! Seriously! So easy! I made it for my mom and my boyfriend and they both absolutely loved it!!

  11. YUM!! This looks absolutely delicious!!

  12. How would you cook the artichoke chicken in the crock pot? When would you add the topping of the mayo, artichoke, etc?

  13. Just found this site and it looks sooooo yummy! Thanks!

  14. Could your use yogurt instead of Mayo to make this more healthy?

  15. Love this recipe. Thank you.

  16. I had a roommate like that once. I finally decided it’s genetic and I lost. This is an excellent recipe

  17. Could you use sour cream instead?? No mayo at the moment.

  18. Bless you. I am trying to make dinner w/what I have in my pantry and freezer as we have been snow bound since the snow storm moved through here 4 days ago. This will work perfectly!

  19. Do u think u could mix some spinach in with it too?

  20. I made this tonight with light mayo and marinated artichokes. Very good!

  21. This sounds sooo delicious! My only problem is I get so paranoid that the chicken isn’t all the way cooked through that I overbake it and then I have dried out chicken. I really want to try this though. Any advice for me?

  22. Jeanne Morton says:

    Just had this for dinner. Easy and really delicious! And the chicken was so moist. I hate dry, overcooked chicken. The topping keeps it moist and when it looked perfectly golden, it was done. I did let it sit for 5 minutes before serving it. Excellent recipe. Thanks!

  23. I made this for dinner tonight, and it was fantastic!
    The whole family loved it and it was super easy. I might add spinach next time or some breadcrumbs. Or both!

  24. Hi, Christy! Is the “grated parmesan cheese” the kind in the bottle you shake out, or is it the kind in a bag like Kraft. I see this ingredient all the time in recipes. but never sure which one to use. Are they interchangeable? Thanks and happy cooking!!!!

  25. Made this tonight for myself and boyfriend we’re obsessed!!!!!!

  26. I add spinach and it’s wonderful.

  27. This was absolutely delish!! My husband just kept making yummy sounds and looking at me lol. What I loved most is how easy it is. Thank you so much, this is a keeper.

  28. HI! I know this is an older post… I’m new. Do you think it would still work without the cheese (I just discovered I’m allergic to whey/dairy but this sounds soo yummy!).
