I’ve been making this Artichoke Chicken recipe since college. With only a couple of ingredients, it tastes like artichoke dip on top of chicken. This chicken dinner is baked in the oven and is one of those easy weeknight dinners.

(originally posted 2015)

I have a babysitter that is not only great with my kids but she completely cleans my house. Babysitter goldmine, right? I always clean before babysitters come over anyway but no matter how clean I get it, she’ll find a junk drawer to organize or laundry to do.

I don’t want her to think I’m a total slob so I try to clean as much as I can before she comes and wash every single piece of laundry I can find – which lasts for about 2 minutes before there’s already dirty laundry with a house full of 7 people.

Remember me, the worst folder ever? She has military grade folding skills.

Last time we went out, I was sure that there was nothing she could possibly find to clean or fold and I came home to my game closet organized (she said she couldn’t help herself) and about 10 items of clothing washed and folded – one being a pair of my underwear, folded in a very small tight square.

I guess I should get over it and embrace the help. What does all that have to do with this chicken? Nothing.

Except that I used to make this 8 years ago when we lived in a tiny apartment with a lot less kids and a lot less to clean.

Think of your favorite Spinach artichoke dip on top of chicken minus the spinach. The flavor is delicious. The cream sauce keeps the chicken from getting dry and the ingredients although simple, are delicious.

I only made 4 breasts this time so I had leftover topping and stuck it in the oven until bubbly and served it with baguettes. So versatile.

You can use chicken cutlets if you like. Serve with garlic bread and a green salad. Store leftovers in the fridge.

    This was wonderful. I added diced mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Thank you!!

  2. Robin MacDonald Reply

    YUM! The only difference I chose was marinated artichoke hearts….gives the dish some tang.

  3. Sean Reply

    I absolutely loved this dish. It was really easy and delicious. This should definitely be on everyones dinner rotation. I have been telling everyone about this recipe.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Thank you!

  4. Arlene Reply

    I was hoping to find the NA (Sodium) amount listed for the Artichoke Chicken recipe. That would be very helpful to know, as I for one am on a very low-sodium diet.
    Would it be possible to include this information in the “Nutrition Information” of recipes?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      The nutritional info is listed at the bottom of the recipe.

  5. Tara E. Reply

    Is this freshly grated Parmesan or the powdery type of grated Parmesan?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Fresh would be better but I’ve used both.

  6. Janice Reply

    This is so amazing. I’ve been making this for years. It’s one of my go to recipes.
    Great for entertaining. Make it ahead of time and put it in the fridge. Just pop it in the oven when ready. 😋 I like to make meals that have leftovers that taste great. And this chicken and artichoke recipe is a big leftover hit.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      So happy to hear that!

    • Marci Vigil Vigil Reply

      I like your idea of making this ahead of time and popping it in the oven. Do you have to let the baking dish come to room temperature, or can you just put it in the oven when the dish is cold?

  7. Leandra Reply

    This was so easy and very delcious.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Happy to hear that!

  8. Lynne Randall Reply

    Sounds delicious and I can wait to make it my family loves artichoke dip and chicken what an impressive way to combine both

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Hope you like it!

  9. Kelley Reply

    Another winning recipe for our family. The topping tastes like a delicious artichoke dip. I added jalapenos because we like a little spice with everything.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      So glad you liked it!

  10. Jan Reply

    Best chicken artichoke I’ve ever had. Thanks for sharing

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Thank yoU!

  11. Linda Schwartz Reply

    Can you assemble it the day before and then bake it one day later?

    • Christy Denney Reply

    Made this several times before, but this time I added some fresh green chili peppers.
    Absolutely awesome!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Yum! Great tip!

  13. Tracy Baldwin Reply

    This is so good! I’m doing a cleanse so I changed it a bit. I used Dijon mustard instead of mayo and Pecorino Romano for the parmesan. It was 2 thumbs up from everyone in my house!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Oh Yum! THank you!

  14. Lisa Reply

    Did I miss the temp?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Yep, it’s 375 degrees which is says on step #1

  15. Lisa Reply

    This recipe is so easy and so very delicious. My family loved it and wants it again next week!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      So happy to hear that.

  16. Paula Coffman Reply

    Could I make this with marinated artichokes?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Yes you can.

  17. Helen G Reply

    Made this last night – fantastic. I;m always watching our calories so I made it with light mayo and it was still great. So simple and flavorful. Served it with wild rice and vegetables. Thanks for what will be a regular in our meals.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Thanks! Awesome!

  18. Alison N. Reply

    Rave reviews – even from the picky 12 year old! Thank you for an easy, delicious, weeknight meal – I roasted some tomatoes with olive oil, S&P while the chicken cooked, drizzled them with balsamic, and served with warm bread for those who still eat bread – half the house does, the other doesn’t. It was a hit all the way around. I wouldn’t hesitate to serve this to guests!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Sounds amazing!

  19. Maureen O'Leary Reply

    This looks awesome and we Love artichoke dip and on chicken WOW LOOKS EASY AND DELICIOUS. Easy dinner

      It’s a good easy one.

  21. Jewel Reply

    I used marinated artichokes and it was very zesty!! My men loved it!!🖒

    • Christy Denney Reply

      I really like marinated ones!

  22. laura Odum Reply

    HI! I know this is an older post… I’m new. Do you think it would still work without the cheese (I just discovered I’m allergic to whey/dairy but this sounds soo yummy!).

  23. Stacy Reply

    This was absolutely delish!! My husband just kept making yummy sounds and looking at me lol. What I loved most is how easy it is. Thank you so much, this is a keeper.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      You’re so welcome. I love hearing that!

  24. Chris Chott Reply

    I add spinach and it’s wonderful.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      That would be great!

  25. Brielle Reply

    Made this tonight for myself and boyfriend we’re obsessed!!!!!!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Love hearing that.

  26. Rhonda Reply

    Hi, Christy! Is the “grated parmesan cheese” the kind in the bottle you shake out, or is it the kind in a bag like Kraft. I see this ingredient all the time in recipes. but never sure which one to use. Are they interchangeable? Thanks and happy cooking!!!!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Yes, so grated is the one in the can. If it’s in a bag like Kraft it will usually say shredded.

  27. Jessica Reply

    I made this for dinner tonight, and it was fantastic!
    The whole family loved it and it was super easy. I might add spinach next time or some breadcrumbs. Or both!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Glad you liked it!

  28. Jeanne Morton Reply

    Just had this for dinner. Easy and really delicious! And the chicken was so moist. I hate dry, overcooked chicken. The topping keeps it moist and when it looked perfectly golden, it was done. I did let it sit for 5 minutes before serving it. Excellent recipe. Thanks!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      You’re welcome!

  29. Tammy Reply

    This sounds sooo delicious! My only problem is I get so paranoid that the chicken isn’t all the way cooked through that I overbake it and then I have dried out chicken. I really want to try this though. Any advice for me?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Ahhh. No. Just don’t overbake. Have one test piece to cut into so you know for sure.

      • Tammy Reply

        Thanks. I’m gonna try it for sure.

  30. Layla Reply

    I made this tonight with light mayo and marinated artichokes. Very good!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      So easy too, right?!

  31. Cheryl Reply

    Do u think u could mix some spinach in with it too?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Yes! Spinach dip chicken – even better Cheryl.

  32. Morrine Reply

    Bless you. I am trying to make dinner w/what I have in my pantry and freezer as we have been snow bound since the snow storm moved through here 4 days ago. This will work perfectly!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Oh my goodness. I hope things clear up soon! Good luck!

  33. Melany Reply

    Could you use sour cream instead?? No mayo at the moment.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Sour cream will melt a little more but it will work.

  34. Marlena Reply

    I had a roommate like that once. I finally decided it’s genetic and I lost. This is an excellent recipe

  35. Liz Reply

    Love this recipe. Thank you.

  36. Wendy Reply

    Could your use yogurt instead of Mayo to make this more healthy?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      You could. It will be runnier for sure though.

  37. Tracy Reply

    Just found this site and it looks sooooo yummy! Thanks!

    • Christy Denney Reply


  38. Lynne Reply

    How would you cook the artichoke chicken in the crock pot? When would you add the topping of the mayo, artichoke, etc?

    • Christy Denney Reply

      I think you could add it from the get go.

  39. Lolo Reply

    YUM!! This looks absolutely delicious!!

  40. Joy Lynn Reply

    This is the easiest and most delicious chicken I’ve ever made! Seriously! So easy! I made it for my mom and my boyfriend and they both absolutely loved it!!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Thank you!

  41. Mindy Reply

    I need that girl in my life!!!!

  42. Autumn Prince Reply

    Totally just made these tonight with the intention of having dinner ready to heat up tomorrow night. And I took one bite and could not stop! Seriously so yummy!

    • Christy Denney Reply

      Hey Autumn…glad you liked it. You’re looking great!

  43. Robby Reply

    This looks like a sure fire hit, and I have everything in the house! I also already have dinner in the crockpot, but this will happen very soon. Thanks for a killer idea.

    • Christy Denney Reply

      You’re welcome Robby!

  44. Rhiannon Reply

    You crack me up! This dish sounds delist and I look forward to making it tomorrow

  45. Brianna Reply

    Why do I keep checking your blog AFTER I go to the grocery store? I will learn better one of these days! Oh well, I will add this to next week’s menu 🙂 Looks delish!!

    • Christy Denney Reply

    Love this recipe!!! Delish!!!!! BTW, I think the babysitter needs to meet the lady who wrote “the life-changing magic of tidying up”. She’ll love it!

      I think she might have been her ghost writer.:)
