A note about serious food allergies

Let's take the best parts of the spinach and artichoke dip experience (by this we mean the spinach, the artichoke, and the dippers) and remix it. The spinach and artichoke go inside the substitute "dipping material" (ie, tortillas) along with shredded chicken. Those babies then get rolled up, fried, and topped with a bit of delicious crema. Did we use the best and leave the rest here? You're darn right we did.

  1. 1

    Cook the Chicken

    Pat chicken dry. Season both sides with a pinch of pepper.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan, and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Transfer chicken to a mixing bowl and season with a pinch of salt. Let cool, 5 minutes.

    Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    While chicken cooks, continue recipe.

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

    Coarsely chop artichokes.

    Coarsely chop spinach.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Once chicken has cooled, shred into bite-sized pieces.

    Add half the sour cream (reserve remaining for topping), spinach, artichokes, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice (reserve remaining for crema), Parmesan, softened cream cheese, white portions of green onions, and a pinch of salt to bowl with shredded chicken. Stir to combine.
