1/2 c. Mayonnaise

2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard

8 ounces Mozzarella Cheese grated

3 ounces Freshly Grated Parmesan

1/2 Can Artichoke Hearts drained and diced

4 c. Fresh Spinach coarsely chopped (about 2 ounces)

How to make Spinach and Artichoke Chicken

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: In a large baking dish, lay the chicken breasts flat, then sprinkle with garlic powder and 1/4 tsp each salt pepper.

Step 3: Combine the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Reserve about a cup or 1/3 of the cheese mixture.

Step 4: Place the rest of the cheese mixture in a large bowl along with the mayo, sour cream, mustard, onion, and the remaining salt and pepper. Mix well until everything is combined. Add the chopped spinach and diced artichoke hearts. Carefully mix to coat.

Step 5: Over the chicken, spread the mixture. Top with the reserved cheese. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake the chicken for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked with an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

Step 6: Serve the chicken immediately when done. Enjoy!
