Lazy Spinach Artichoke Chicken – Low Carb, Gluten Free, Grain Free, THM S, Keto
One of my favorite home date night dinners is chicken stuffed with spinach and artichokes. I have a recipe Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Chicken Breasts already on the blog. I’ll try to make a big batch and freeze some for extra dinners. But sometimes I just don’t have the time to make it.
Or the desire to spend that much time touching raw chicken. When my friend Daria & I cook together she does all the raw chicken touching. It doesn’t bother her and it grosses me out. I’ll gladly wash all the dishes if she preps the chicken.
Anyway, I came up with this fast and easy alternative as those stuffed chicken breasts that has the same amazing flavors.
By the time this was out of the oven it was 6:30, my hubby had just gotten home late from work, and we were hangry. Maybe not hangry, but very hungry. So no fancy pictures this time. And I totally forgot to take more of the leftovers. But even without fancy shots with cloth napkins and glasses of pinot grigio doesn’t this look yummy?
And the best part is that it really has about 5-10 minutes of hands-on prep time. All the deliciousness with little of the work.
