Creamy Artichoke Chicken

– Posted in: Cooking, Recipes

Creamy artichoke chicken was one of the first meals I made as a married woman. It was to reassure my new hubs that he had made the right choice. Hehe. It worked. The month of May is our anniversary month, so I figured I’d whip up this meal because it’s one of his favorites. And between you and I this creamy artichoke chicken doesnt get much easier!

What you need for Creamy Artichoke Chicken:

  • 4 BSCB (boneless skinless chicken breasts)
  • Salt and pepper to season chicken
  • 1 can of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 3/4 cups of mayonaise
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 tsp basil
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 3/4 cups grated parmasen cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk

This creamy artichoke chicken needed something else, so I served with Pioneer Woman’s Crashed Hot Potatoes. This is my faaaaaaaaaaaavorite way to make potatoes! They’re so easy – boil small new potatoes until they’re fork tender, drizzle your pan with evoo, smash you potatoes with a potato smasher or cup like I did, sprinkle potatoes with more evoo, salt, pepper and basil, bake at 450 for 30ish minutes and you’re done. Oh em gee, you guys. They’re amazing.

It may look like we had a nice green salad with this meal, but we didn’t. I was taking pics and realized it looked so…blah. So I grabbed a handful of lettuce and plopped it down. Does that make me a bad person for not serving with a veggie?

That looks absolutely drool-worthy! I recently realized that I actually do enjoy artichoke, so I’m going to have to give this recipe a try! Thanks so much for sharing!

Artichoke is one of those scary foods that most people prb just assume they dont like. However, most people like it once they give it a chance. :) I hope you like this chicken!

Kristi May 14, 2013, 10:36 am

Pinned it! I grew up in Artichoke country and I’ve never seen a recipe like this. I can not wait to try it…pinned it!

Are you from Castroville, CA? I’m from the East Bay and always wanted to go to the artichoke festival. Haha! I’m so weird!

Tabitha Vos May 14, 2013, 12:51 pm

I am so going to pin and try this one! It looks great and I know my hubby would eat this!

Granny Beth May 14, 2013, 6:25 pm

This looks great, but I’m watching my weight, what would you suggest as a replacement for the mayonaise.

Ashley May 14, 2013, 8:09 pm

You could do miracle whip, or half lite sour cream/half mayo. In the comments Camille suggested trying nonfat plain Greek yogurt. I will definitely try this as that would def be an alternative if it tastes good! Maybe try that. :)

Camille Stuckey May 14, 2013, 7:30 pm

I think you could replace it with nonfat greek yogurt. I can’t wait to make this and I am going to replace it and see if it works!

Ashley May 14, 2013, 8:07 pm

I bet you can! Let me know. :) I always have plain Greek yogurt on hand and didnt even think to do that.

Camille Stuckey May 21, 2013, 6:36 pm

Okay so I made it with Greek Yogurt! It was a huge hit at our house tonight! I also didn’t have parmasen cheese so I used shredded mozzarella that I had. This is definitely a new fav with the hubby! Thanks cuz!

Camille Stuckey May 21, 2013, 6:37 pm

nonfat Greek yogurt:)

Ashley May 21, 2013, 6:49 pm

I’m so glad you came back to tell us! My next question was nonfat or not. Haha You clarified though. :) I have some non fat and think Ill make it Thursday. I’m excited for the lightened up version! Thanks! Xoxo

Sounds delish Ashley! Pinned it. Thanks!

We were just through Castroville this past weekend. First time I’ve ever seen artichoke plants. I sooo wanted to buy some and pack to bring home … What a bargain at 10 for $1. I think I saw signs saying the festival is next weekend. You should go!
