Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

I mean this honestly, this dinner is a real winner. It’s super simple, tasty, and gives you leftovers. It also gives you an excuse to use up all of that chicken that’s been sitting in your freezer. (Does anyone else always seem to have chicken in their freezer or is that just me?) It takes a little while to cook (45 minutes – an hour), but it’s worth the wait for this yummy, hearty dinner.

  • 3-4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 tomatoes, cubed
  • 1 large can of artichoke hearts
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mozzarella

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the chicken in an oven safe dish. Mix the tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and salt and pepper together and pour over the chicken. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour. A few minutes before it’s done, sprinkle with mozzarella and let it melt. If you have it, you can also sprinkle chopped basil to give it a fancier presentation.

My Taste Buds’ Soul Mate: Spinach Artichoke Pizza

I wish I could describe to you the love I have for this pizza. I love it almost as much as truffle oil. Almost. And for any other pizza lover out there (or foodies, or even those who don’t really love food but you of course need to eat – aka EVERYONE) this pizza is for you.

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • ¾ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1½ cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 pack of frozen spinach
  • 1 can of drained artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 1 tubes of pizza crust (I tend to use Pillsbury, but anything works)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and cook the crust according to the directions on the tube. Then in a medium saucepan on low heat add all of the creams – heavy cream, butter, and cream cheese.  Add in the parmesan and garlic powder and let simmer for 15 minutes, occasionally stirring. 

In the meantime, cook the frozen spinach. Once cooked and drained, add it to the simmering sauce. When it’s fully combined, spread on to the pizza crust, and top it with the artichokes and mozzarella. Bake for 15 minutes/ until the cheese is golden brown. Last step – fall in love with the deliciousness.
