  • 1 tsp of each: garlic powder salt, and pepper (more if needed)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • In a mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, chopped spinach, cracked black pepper, artichoke hearts, chopped garlic, marinated artichoke hearts, & a pinch of salt.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture over the chicken breasts as evenly as you can.
  • Top with mozzarella cheese.

  • Always make sure the chicken (or any protein for that matter) is room temperature and patted dry of any moisture before cooking or baking.
