Step 1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with Nonstick Cooking Spray (to taste) .
Step 2
In a large nonstick skillet heat Olive Oil (1/2 Tbsp) over medium heat. Add Garlic (3 cloves) and saute for 1 minute. Add half of Fresh Baby Spinach (7 1/2 cups) , Salt (1/4 tsp) and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) . Stir until spinach is wilted. Continue to add handfuls of spinach until all spinach is wilted.
Step 3
Reduce heat to low and add Artichoke Hearts Packed in Water (1 can) and Light Cream Cheese (1/2 cup) . Stir until cream cheese melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in both Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (1/2 cup) and Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup) . Set aside.
Step 4
Place Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (5) on the prepared baking sheet. On top of each chicken breast drizzle a little olive oil and sprinkle with Italian Seasoning (to taste) , Garlic Salt (to taste) and Paprika (to taste) . Use your hands to spread olive oil and seasonings evenly over the top of chicken breasts.
Step 5
Open the chicken and evenly divide spinach artichoke filling. Close the chicken (like a closing a book), and bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken breasts. For best results, use a thermometer to make sure chicken reaches a temperature of 165 degrees F (73 degrees C).
Step 6
Serve warm with sides of choice.
