  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup canned artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

  9. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and spoon the spinach artichoke sauce over them.
  10. Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is bubbly and golden brown.
