Artichoke & Spinach {dip} Chicken

The countdown is on to Levi’s 1st Christmas! What’s still on your to-do list? Next week I hope to try out a couple new cookie recipes (from the special holiday baking issue of Fine Cooking), take Levi downtown for some last minute shopping, and maintain some amount of sanity.


By now you may have already attended several holiday parties, or even thrown some yourself. And if all the merriment of the season has left you with, let’s say, extra artichoke-spinach dip, we know just what you should do with it! Spoon into chicken breasts, top with a little Parmesan cheese, and bake. If you don’t have leftover dip, we promise it’s worth it to make the artichoke-spinach dip for this recipe. The chicken stays nice and moist with a creamy, cheesy, flavorful center! We served our chicken with some rice pilaf, and roasted broccoli tossed lightly in balsamic vinegar. And guess what? I reserved a few florets for Levi and put them through the food mill. He loved it! Now we can add broccoli to his list!

Artichoke & Spinach {dip} Chicken

2 chicken breast halves
1/2 cup (or more) prepared Artichoke-Spinach Dip
grated Parmesan cheese
freshly ground black pepper

  • Preheat your oven to 350.
  • Cut a 3-inch slit in the top of each chicken breast half, and stuff with a couple spoonfuls of dip. Sprinkle with Parmesan and crack some black pepper over the top.
  • Place in a greased baking dish.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is done and the dip is nice and bubbly. Serves 2.

I’ll leave you with a cheesy Christmas picture:
