Here is your saviour during busy days where you need something easy to prepare, from pantry and freezer ingredients… that cooks in one dish!

Tender pieces of chicken are cooked in a tasty, creamy sauce full of the delicious and classic flavour combination of spinach and artichoke.

I love that you can use any chicken pieces that you have in the freezer, and also that there are no difficult to obtain ingredients.

And the icing on the cake? It’s best served in a generous bowl so you can eat it curled up in the chair while you catch up on your shows or finish reading your book.

This casserole can be eaten on its own but feel free to add a veggie side to bulk it up. Extra spinach or spiralized zucchini noodles work best! This low-carb recipe makes four generous servings or up to six regular servings so portion it out to fit your macros. Enjoy!

We just finished having this dish for dinner.  It was excellent! I made substitutions because I did not have everything in recipe;  I did not have frozen spinach so I substituted half a bottle of Kale Pesto with White Cheddar (Sonoma from Costco) , doubled the cheese, doubled the artichokes, used chicken breasts (cut in pieces 1x2 inches or so.
It was really really tasty!   In fact, I would make this again in a heartbeat!
It reminds me of artichoke dip but more hearty; I think it would be good to add a small can of chopped green chillies.
Thank you for this!!
