How to Make Artichoke Spinach Skillet Chicken

For this recipe, you’ll use two to four chicken breasts, about 6 ounces per person. So just adjust the amount of chicken according to the number of people you’re wanting to feed or the amount of pre-planned leftovers you need for upcoming meals.

Generously season the raw chicken breast on both sides with salt, pepper, and oregano. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil, then add chicken and cook until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side.

Melt the butter in the hot skillet, stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in baby spinach, chopped artichokes, and diced fire-roasted tomatoes and cook, covered, until spinach starts to wilt. Grate some fresh parmesan or Asiago cheese over the top, allow it to melt, then serve immediately.
