  • 2 chicken breast halves
  • 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 can of artichokes hearts chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 8 oz low fat cream cheese
  • 2 TBSP minced garlic
  • 1 TBSP olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Use a oven safe pan and add olive oil over medium-high heat
  • Add chicken breast and brown both sides cooking 5 minutes each side
  • Add chicken broth and broken up cream cheese to the pan and stir until the cream cheese is melted
  • Stir in garlic, artichokes, and spinach cook for a couple minutes stirring regularly until the spinach is somewhat wilted
  • Put pan in oven for 20 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.


  • Be sure and use a pan you can use in the oven. A cast iron pan works perfect for this recipe
  • Need to feed more than 2 people? You can easily add a couple more chicken breasts to this recipe and make it a meal for 4
  • Don't have fresh spinach on hand? You can use frozen spinach by completely defrosting the spinach and then putting it in a strainer and pushing out all the water you can
  • You don't have to use low fat cream cheese for this recipe. Regular cream cheese works just as well. If calories don't matter go for the full fat cream cheese
  • This is basically a complete meal, but if you are wanting something more add some pasta or potatoes to go with this recipe like these Zesty Roasted Potatoes
  • If you are using extra big chicken breast make sure the chicken is fully cooked after the 20 minutes cooking time. You can do this by cutting into the thickest part of the chicken
