Healthy Artichoke Recipe: Spinach & Artichoke Smothered Chicken

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

• 1 (10 ounce) package frozen spinach, thawed

• ½ cup chopped canned artichoke hearts, rinsed

• ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

• 2 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened

• 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

• 1 tablespoon minced shallot

• 1 large clove garlic, grated

• 1 pound chicken cutlets

• ½ teaspoon ground pepper

• ⅛ teaspoon salt

• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

• 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan


1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Squeeze as much water from spinach as possible. Place in a medium bowl and add artichoke hearts, Monterey Jack, cream cheese, mayonnaise, shallot and garlic. Stir to combine.

3. Pat chicken dry and sprinkle with pepper and salt. Heat oil in a large cast-iron or other broiler-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more.

4. Top the chicken with the spinach mixture. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan. Place the pan under the broiler and broil until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of a cutlet registers 165°F and the topping is beginning to brown and warmed throughout, 2 to 3 minutes.
