    Spinach, artichokes, and cheese just go together. And it doesn't always have to be a dip – although I LOVE spinach and artichoke dip. In fact, that's what inspired me to put this Slow cooker Spinach Artichoke Chickenmeal together.

    Ok back to the recipe at hand…

    This is comfort food. It is just such a satisfying meal. The chunks of chicken mixed in with pieces of artichoke hearts and spinach all mixed in a creamy cheese sauce. How can that be bad?

    It can't be. Which is why you really should make this tonight. For real. Oh, and the instructions are pretty simple. Just throw it all together and turn the crockpot on. My favorite kind of meal 🙂

    Here's what you need (missing the cheddar cheese though). Yes, there's a decent amount of dairy. I always worry how cheese will work in the crockpot, but it works just fine here.

    For the spinach, you will want to get as much water out as possible. This is why the frozen block of spinach works best. After you thaw it, put it in a strainer and squeeze out as much water as possible.

    Then I mixed it all together. I don't know that this step is necessary, but I did it anyway. I used half the cheese in the crockpot. The other 2 ounces will be for the top.

    4 short hours later, top with the remaining cheese and then put the lid back on for another 5 minutes or so to let the cheese melt.

    Serve over pasta and enjoy!

    • Doubling should be fine. However, I’ve never tried low for 8 hours… since there is a lot of dairy in this recipe, I worry that the bottom might scorch a bit.

  • I would like to try this and the other recipes that I paid for but my email links to download my purchases do not work any longer. Please help me. I bought in August but due to computer issues and a cross country move I was not able to download the three recipe books. I have tried to make contact but have had no response. Please help me

  • Slow cooker spinach and artichoke chicken:

    Is the “1/2 jar of artichoke hearts” referring to a “6 oz net weight jar”?

    Thank you for your help.

  • When you are making this as a freezer meal, do you still thaw the spinach to add to the recipe and then freeze it again once the recipe is assembled?

  • I have found that all spinach and artichoke dip is better with a little alfredo sauce! It really cuts the sour taste from the sour cream and cream cheese. My favorite brand is Bertolli, but any will work.
