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.

I 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.
I 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.

I was hoping to find the NA (Sodium) amount listed for the Artichoke Chicken recipe. That would be very helpful to know, as I for one am on a very low-sodium diet.
Would it be possible to include this information in the “Nutrition Information” of recipes?
The nutritional info is listed at the bottom of the recipe.
Is this freshly grated Parmesan or the powdery type of grated Parmesan?
Fresh would be better but I’ve used both.
This is so amazing. I’ve been making this for years. It’s one of my go to recipes.
Great for entertaining. Make it ahead of time and put it in the fridge. Just pop it in the oven when ready. 😋 I like to make meals that have leftovers that taste great. And this chicken and artichoke recipe is a big leftover hit.
So happy to hear that!
I like your idea of making this ahead of time and popping it in the oven. Do you have to let the baking dish come to room temperature, or can you just put it in the oven when the dish is cold?
This was so easy and very delcious.
Happy to hear that!
Sounds delicious and I can wait to make it my family loves artichoke dip and chicken what an impressive way to combine both
Hope you like it!
Another winning recipe for our family. The topping tastes like a delicious artichoke dip. I added jalapenos because we like a little spice with everything.
So glad you liked it!
Best chicken artichoke I’ve ever had. Thanks for sharing
Can you assemble it the day before and then bake it one day later?
Made this several times before, but this time I added some fresh green chili peppers.
Yum! Great tip!
This is so good! I’m doing a cleanse so I changed it a bit. I used Dijon mustard instead of mayo and Pecorino Romano for the parmesan. It was 2 thumbs up from everyone in my house!
Oh Yum! THank you!
Did I miss the temp?
Yep, it’s 375 degrees which is says on step #1
This recipe is so easy and so very delicious. My family loved it and wants it again next week!
So happy to hear that.
Could I make this with marinated artichokes?
Yes you can.
Made this last night – fantastic. I;m always watching our calories so I made it with light mayo and it was still great. So simple and flavorful. Served it with wild rice and vegetables. Thanks for what will be a regular in our meals.
Rave reviews – even from the picky 12 year old! Thank you for an easy, delicious, weeknight meal – I roasted some tomatoes with olive oil, S&P while the chicken cooked, drizzled them with balsamic, and served with warm bread for those who still eat bread – half the house does, the other doesn’t. It was a hit all the way around. I wouldn’t hesitate to serve this to guests!
This looks awesome and we Love artichoke dip and on chicken WOW LOOKS EASY AND DELICIOUS. Easy dinner
Thank you! Glad you liked it.
Yup, this is a keeper. That’s all I have to say!
It’s a good easy one.
I used marinated artichokes and it was very zesty!! My men loved it!!🖒
I really like marinated ones!
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!).
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.
You’re so welcome. I love hearing that!
I add spinach and it’s wonderful.
That would be great!
Made this tonight for myself and boyfriend we’re obsessed!!!!!!
Love hearing that.
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!!!!
Yes, so grated is the one in the can. If it’s in a bag like Kraft it will usually say shredded.
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!
Glad you liked it!
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!
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?
Ahhh. No. Just don’t overbake. Have one test piece to cut into so you know for sure.
Thanks. I’m gonna try it for sure.
I made this tonight with light mayo and marinated artichokes. Very good!
So easy too, right?!
Do u think u could mix some spinach in with it too?
Yes! Spinach dip chicken – even better Cheryl.
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!
Oh my goodness. I hope things clear up soon! Good luck!
Could you use sour cream instead?? No mayo at the moment.
Sour cream will melt a little more but it will work.
I had a roommate like that once. I finally decided it’s genetic and I lost. This is an excellent recipe
Love this recipe. Thank you.
Could your use yogurt instead of Mayo to make this more healthy?
You could. It will be runnier for sure though.
Just found this site and it looks sooooo yummy! Thanks!
How would you cook the artichoke chicken in the crock pot? When would you add the topping of the mayo, artichoke, etc?
I think you could add it from the get go.
YUM!! This looks absolutely delicious!!
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!!
I need that girl in my life!!!!
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!
Hey Autumn…glad you liked it. You’re looking great!
This looks like a sure fire hit, and I have everything in the house! I also already have dinner in the crockpot, but this will happen very soon. Thanks for a killer idea.
You’re welcome Robby!
You crack me up! This dish sounds delist and I look forward to making it tomorrow
Why do I keep checking your blog AFTER I go to the grocery store? I will learn better one of these days! Oh well, I will add this to next week’s menu 🙂 Looks delish!!
Sorry! Next time?
This is so simple! I need simple.
Amen to that!
Looks so good – thank you and have a great weekend.
Yum! This would be so yummy!
Love this recipe!!! Delish!!!!! BTW, I think the babysitter needs to meet the lady who wrote “the life-changing magic of tidying up”. She’ll love it!
I think she might have been her ghost writer.:)
