Ingredients

  • 8 cups loosely packed spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4 (6-8 ounce) whole chicken breasts (bone-in with skin)
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese, reduced-fat but not fat free
  • 4 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 (14-ounce) can preservative-free artichoke hearts OR 6- 8 artichoke hearts from a jar, drained and chopped

Directions

In a 4-quart slow cooker, pop in the spinach, chicken, and chicken broth.  Sprinkle garlic, salt, onion, and pepper on top of everything.  Place the cover on top and cook for approximately 6-8 hours on low, or if you’d like, 4-6 hours on high.

In a separate bowl, stir together cream cheese, artichokes, and Parmesan cheese.  Keep stirring until it becomes a creamy mixture.  Spoon over the chicken breasts.

Top it all off with the tomatoes and extra Parmesan cheese, if you so desire.
