Crispy Baked Chicken Recipe With Creamy Spinach Artichoke Sauce Is a Dinner Grand Slam

Chicken recipes seem to be all the rage. Maybe because chicken is a budget-friendly ingredient – and it's delicious and can be cooked in so many different ways! From French baked chicken to crispy ranch chicken to Caesar chicken to spicy orange chicken, the possibilities are endless.

If you enjoy the combination of spinach and artichokes (think spinach artichoke dip), then you are going to eat up this easy baked chicken recipe with creamy spinach artichoke sauce. With a creamy sauce and crispy skin, it's a dinner grand slam for sure. The chicken thighs (or your favorite chicken pieces) are seasoned then browned in a skillet. The creamy spinach artichoke sauce is made with garlic, chicken broth, cream, Parmesan cheese, artichoke hearts and spinach. After getting creamy in the pan, the chicken is added back and baked until cooked through and crispy. 

Serve this baked chicken recipe with your favorite side dishes. Mashed potatoes, rice or quinoa are almost a must to soak up the creamy sauce. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 to 45 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 - 6 bone-in chicken thighs 
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
  • 1 jar (6 - 7 ounces) marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped (you could substitute water-packed artichoke hearts)
  • 2 - 3 cups chopped fresh spinach or 5 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Season the chicken with the Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt and pepper, to taste. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof skillet. Add the chicken, skin side down, and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the chicken over and cook another 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to a plate.
  3. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add the chicken broth and cook, stirring up all the brown bits on the bottom, for about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the heavy cream and Parmesan. Cook, stirring, until cheese has melted. Stir in the artichoke hearts and spinach. Cook until spinach wilts, about 2 minutes. 
  4. Put the chicken back into the pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven until chicken is cooked through, about 20 to 25 minutes. 

Note: If you prefer using a baking pan or casserole dish, pour the finished sauce into the bottom and top with the chicken. Bake as directed.
