Chicken Artichoke Casserole is a super easy to make spring casserole using boneless chicken breasts, artichoke hearts, white wine, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, plus a crunchy sliced almond topping. Serve with rice and peas or a salad for a comforting and filling meal.
It really only takes 10 to 15 minutes to prep this casserole. Then place it in the oven for 40 minutes and you have a warm, rich supper ready to hit the table.
There are two vegetables that start with the letter “A” that I can’t get enough of each spring- Asparagus and Artichokes. But while fresh asparagus couldn’t be easier to cook, I can’t say the same for artichokes. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever cooked fresh artichokes. Except baby artichokes in a crawfish boil.
I always use frozen or canned artichoke hearts so there’s really no reason for me to limit most of my artichoke eating to spring, but it just seems fitting to.
I like to cook casseroles at least once a week. They tend to be easy to make, satisfying, and leftovers almost always heat up well.
