  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approximately 2 lbs)
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to season


  • 8 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 8 oz reduced fat cream cheese at room temp
  • 5 oz (I can) artichoke hearts in brine, drained, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic


  • Remaining spinach and artichoke filling
  • 1 cup 2% milk


Prepare The Chicken:

  1. Season both sides of each breast with the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Cut a slit in the side of the breast about 3/4 quarter of the way through, being careful not to cut all the way.

Make The Filling:

  1. Squeeze any and all excess liquid out of the spinach, discarding liquid. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the spinach, cream cheese, artichokes, mozzarella, Parmesan and garlic; mix well to combine. (You may use a food processor fitted with the blade for this process as well, making sure to not completely puree the filling.)
  2. Place 1-2 tablespoons of the spinach artichoke filling into each chicken breast, sealing with toothpicks or tie with butcher twine.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil in a cast iron skillet (or non stick pan) over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and fry until lightly golden. Turn and fry on the other side, covering pan with a lid, until cooked through, (this should be about 10 minutes each side. Transfer chicken to a warm plate.

For The Sauce:

  1. Pour milk into the skillet and bring to a simmer. Add in the remaining filling and stir until sauce is thickened.

To serve: Cut chicken breast in half and place on a dinner plate, spooning sauce overtop.
