If you’re like me, you love a steaming bowl of spinach artichoke dip. With that in mind, I set a goal to make a dinner out of the dip. First came this easy spinach artichoke baked chicken casserole recipe. Now it’s this cheesy chicken broccoli casserole recipe with spinach and artichokes. One word: YUM!


This creamy chicken
casserole dinner is packed with nutritious broccoli, spinach and artichokes. I love the simplicity of baking everything in only one dish, making for easy cleanup. The fact that I can have my dip and eat it, too, makes me feel good about what I’m feeding my family for dinner (even though this dish tastes like the ultimate comfort food).

Here’s your
gluten-free shopping list for this moist, flavor-packed chicken dinner: chicken, broccoli, garlic powder, onion, mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard, ricotta cheese, cheddar cheese, artichoke hearts and fresh spinach. It all bakes up into creamy golden brown goodness.


You can serve this cheesy chicken casserole recipe for dinner over rice, potatoes or pasta, or with a side of
vegetables or a salad (for a low-carb version). I served it over turmeric rice to soak up the delicious sauce.

Recipe Notes


  • You can make this recipe with chicken breasts, thighs or a combination. I used half chicken breast tenders and half chicken thighs.

  • You can use plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, if desired.

  • Serve on its own with a salad or vegetables, or over rice, pasta or potatoes.

  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days and reheat in the microwave or oven.

  • This recipe can be frozen for up to three months.


Here’s how to make it:


  1. Place the broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with a damp paper towel. Steam the broccoli until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray (or lined with aluminum foil), place the chicken in a single layer. Season with garlic powder, and with salt and pepper, if desired.
