I am uber-excited to share this recipe with you today because OH.EM.GEE it’s GOOD! Like really, really good. And what’s better than that? It’s super easy too!

Do you ever just feel like sinking your teeth into something creamy, delicious and comforting…even when you’re trying to be “good” and even when it’s hot as a (fill in the blank) outside?¬†I had one of those days last week and this Spinach Artichoke Chicken Pasta really hit the spot!

The sauce is perfectly creamy, BUT instead of heavy cream, I used part milk and part chicken broth, so you can still feel good about eating seconds…or thirds ūüôā

This Spinach Artichoke Chicken Pasta is so quick, easy, creamy and delicious!

I absolutely love Spinach Artichoke Dip. If it’s on the menu, I’m probably ordering it. And I would totally¬†eat it as a meal, except that it probably wouldn’t fill me up enough and I would be hungry again an hour later…not good!

So I decided to combine this delicious dip into meal form and let me tell you, I totally nailed it!

Chicken. Pasta. Spinach. Artichokes. Creamy Cheeeeeeeeeese Sauce. What could be better than that?

Nothing. Nothing is better than that.

Busy weeknights call for easy and delicious pasta! This creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken Pasta checks all the right boxes!

This Spinach Artichoke Chicken Pasta has all the great flavors of Spinach Artichoke Dip, and it will absolutely fill you up so you’re not creeping to the refrigerator in the middle of the night looking for a snack! Win-win!

What’s more, this recipe¬†couldn’t be any easier to put together, so it is perfect for busy weeknights when you need a quick home cooked meal on the table, fast!

In my opinion, you really can’t go wrong with rotisserie chicken, but feel free to cook up your own, or omit it completely if you are going meatless.

Serve this Spinach Artichoke Chicken Pasta with some garlic toast and a side salad for a simple and yummy weeknight dinner!
