Skinny Spinach Artichoke Chicken

Have you run out of ideas about how to cook chicken or are you tired of eating plain chicken breasts?  I love to cook but sometimes feel get bored with cooking the same chicken dishes over and over.  My goal was to create a new, easy to cook chicken entrée while still keeping it healthy.  Skinny Spinach & Artichoke Chicken is a tasty, healthy dish made with fresh spinach, marinated artichoke hearts and new Weight Watchers Whipped Cream Cheese.

Weight Watchers

Weight Watchers Whipped Cream cheese is the leading reduced fat whipped cream cheese on the market.  It contains 25% less fat per serving than regular cream cheese and 60 calories and a PointsPlus® value of 2 per serving.  Because it still has a rich, indulgent creamy flavor without all the fat it is a tasty alternative to higher calorie and higher fat cream cheese spreads.

If you only eat cream cheese on bagels, you may not know that you can cook and bake with it too. In this recipe, the Weight Watchers Whipped Cream Cheese is mixed with spinach, garlic, artichoke hearts, Parmesan cheese and non-fat yogurt for a creamy, cheese sauce that is poured over the chicken. The chicken bakes in the oven for about 30 minutes and dinner is served!

Preheat oven

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray and place chicken breasts in the dish.  This recipe calls for 1 1/2 pounds of chicken, I prefer to buy thin sliced breasts or you can butterfly three large breasts yourself. Set aside the chicken while you make the spinach & artichoke sauce.

Chop artichoke

Drain artichoke hearts and chop them into bite size pieces. Use the flat side of your knife to crush the garlic, then peel it.

Mince garlic

Mince the two cloves of garlic, they will be going into the sauce so I like them finely minced.

Chop spinach

Remove the stems from the spinach leaves and roughly chop the spinach.

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan, then add the spinach. It may look like too much spinach but trust me it will cook way down.

Spinach Artichoke Chicken (23)

Like magic, the spinach wilts and cooks down to this!

add garlic

Add the minced garlic to the pan…

Add artichokes

Then added the drained and chopped artichokes.

add cheeses

Next add 1/2 cup of Weight Watchers whipped cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese.  Stir until the cheese melts.

Turn off the heat and stir in 2 tablespoons of yogurt and the lemon juice, then salt and pepper to taste.

Chicken with sauce

Pour the spinach and artichoke sauce over the chicken in the baking dish.

Sprinkle with cheese

Finally, sprinkle the chicken with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.  Cover tightly with foil and bake for 20 minutes.  Remove foil and allow to bake uncovered for an additional 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Spinach Artichoke Chicken (39)

I suggest serving the chicken with a fresh green salad topped with balsamic vinaigrette and really good multi-grain bread for a full meal.  Although it tastes rich and creamy thanks to Weight Watchers Whipped Cream Cheese and low-fat yogurt, one serving of Skinny Spinach and Artichoke Chicken contains about 200 calories and only 5 grams of fat.  No more boring chicken for dinner, this easy recipe with help you get a tasty, healthy recipe on the table.  Hope you enjoy!
