A note about serious food allergies

"Dip" is either a delicious spread to put on crackers or chips, or it's a toxic substance that kills ink-based life forms. (Throwing that in there for all you Roger Rabbit fans.) Spinach artichoke dip is definitely in the first category, emphasis on "delicious." And all that deliciousness is extra special folded into a succulent chicken breast. This dip is divine. (Avoid that other one if you're a cartoon.)

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Trim ends off green beans.

    Coarsely chop spinach.

    Coarsely chop artichokes.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Chicken

    Mix softened cream cheese, 2 tsp. lemon juice, spinach, artichokes, Parmesan, a pinch of salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper in a mixing bowl until completely combined.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and place on a clean cutting board. Using a sharp knife, make a lengthwise cut in the thickest end of the chicken. Cut should be deep enough to stuff with artichoke-spinach mixture. Repeat with second breast.

    Fill each chicken breast with half the artichoke-spinach mixture. If chicken is misshapen, gently press to flatten. Season one side with garlic pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan, seasoned side down. Cook undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Transfer pan to hot oven and roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.

    While chicken cooks, cook green beans.

  4. 4

    Cook the Green Beans

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add green beans to hot pan and cook, 1 minute.

    Add 1/4 cup water, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cover, and stir occasionally until tender, 6-8 minutes.

    If green beans need more time, add 2 Tbsp. water and stir occasionally, 1-3 minutes

    Remove from burner and stir in softened lemon garlic butter and a pinch of salt.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
