Three Cheese Chicken and Artichoke Bake {in foil!}

3 Cheese Chicken and Artichoke Bake from www.laurenslatest.comWell, hello friends. How are you? Feeling lazy? Hey, me too! I’d give you a high five, but most of you readers aren’t exactly in arms reach…plus I don’t have the energy to lift my arms past the keyboard. So, you’re outta luck. But if it makes you feel any better, I still love you….so much so that I made you dinner.

You’re welcome.

I made you something tasty and tangy and delightfully delicious! Remember this Jalapeno Artichoke Dip from August? This is basically that recipe, but minus the jalapenos {because I forgot to get them at the store} and with a little extra cheese. Aaaand smothered onto chicken. Forreals. It’s life changing.

Pretend this song is playing in the background for the rest of the post cause it just started playing in my head.

ANYWAYS, this dish takes 10 minutes of prep and leaves no pots or pans! Holla back, ya’ll! I used heavy duty foil, greased them well and made individual packets of this cheesy goodness. 30 minutes in a hot oven and that’s dinner. Serve over whatever you feel like. I made some quinoa to keep this gluten free and up the amount of protein in the dish, but use whatever you have on hand. Rice, pasta, a leather boot…it don’t mattah.

Here are the deets:

cheese ingredientsThen into a bowl, measure out your 3 cheeses, artichokes and other miscellaneous ingredients. Feel free to add in diced jalapenos! I didn’t because I’m blonde AND pregnant…therefore forgot to buy them at the store even though I had it written on my list. I’m so smrt. Stir this until smooth….

  1. Awww yeah! I love foil pack dinners… and that cheesy artichoke goodness looks amazing Lauren!

  2. I love easy and delicious dinners like this! I am a huge fan of adding artichokes to chicken and then with the cheese in there–I bet it is out of this world.

  3. LOVE the foil packet idea! I could assemble these in the morning and then my husband would just need to pop them in the oven when he gets home! Now, that’s something I know he can handle!

  4. Look at how creative you are with your cute packets! I love cooking in individual packets, makes it so easy for clean-up. But I am going to skip the leather boot and just go for extra artichokes *wink.

  5. I swear you made this just for me. All of my favorite things in one!!

  6. If I keep feeding my family artichokes they will learn to love them like I do right? I’m putting this on the to make list. With all the gooey cheese maybe they won’t notice because I have to make this!

    • Haha! I’d like to think so 🙂

  7. Holy crap. That looks amazing. I don’t know which aspect I am more in love with. . . . the cheesy artichokes or the no dishes aspect. Cuz let’s face it, plates are stupid.

  8. Lauren! I have this baking in my oven as I write this! It sounded amazing and I couldn’t wait to try it. It smells fabulous!! Can’t wait to eat it!! Thanks for posting yet another great recipe!! 🙂

  9. We made this Saturday night… FABULOUS! Will become part of our ‘rotation’ for sure!! Thank you!!

  10. Made this for lunch today and it was delish!

  11. Yumm! Nothing better than an easy meal!

  12. I made this tonight and EVERYONE in my family love it, even my one year old and SUPER picky three year old. I just didn’t tell my husband how healthy the quinoa was 🙂

  13. I did not love this meal. The idea seemed so perfect, but it did not turn was too rich and the mayo taste was very distinct. I think you could cut the mayo and cream cheese portions in half. Also be aware that this makes a lot of cheesy artichoke mixture so i would suggest using four chicken breasts to make the meat to sauce/topping ratio more proportionate. I was disappointed, but with some changes this could work for my family.

  14. Could I use parchment. I don’t like to cook in aluminum.

  15. Made this for dinner tonight – delish!!!! My only input would be that 30 mins was too long to cook the chicken. Our chicken was really dry. But the flavor was great. I also would recommend definitely adding the jalepeno.

  16. I bet this would be great with adding some spinach to these as well. But maybe that’s just me… I’ve been going spinach crazy and blending it into my scrambled eggs, I even blended some into the dressing for a veggie ham and pasta salad last night cuz I’m weird like that.

  17. Do you thtink this could be done on the grill?

  18. You are pregnant????

    • This recipe was posted January 2013. I was pregnant at the time 🙂

  19. This was surprisingly good! I did opt to include the jalapeños, although my pregnancy brain also fell short, as I started the process without them and added them on top before closing the packets lol. Coming out they were runny and didn’t look overly appetizing, but I served over rice and it was a hit!

    I do also agree wth another comment that the topping amount is off based on the amount of chicken. I had 3 large chicken breasts and there was plenty of the cream cheese mixture leftover–and I added a generous amount to all 4 of my packets.

  20. If one did not want to heat the oven in this summer heat, do you think it could be done lining the bottom of a large crockpot?
