Creamy Artichoke Crusted Chicken

This chicken is absolutely fantastic! Creamy, moist, and rich.  Not usually adjectives that you associate with healthy!  Try making this for your friends or family and I guarantee that they won’t be able to guess that it is a “light” recipe :)  I paired the chicken with my garlic rosemary sweet potatoes.  Recipe soon to follow!


  • 4 lean 6 oz. chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil (omit if BBQ-ing)
  • Pepper and Salt
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed (you can use frozen if you like)
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese


  • Season chicken with pepper and salt
  • Sautee in canola oil over medium-high heat cooking 8-10 minutes per side (Or simply throw them on the grill!)
  • Set chicken aside and mix together Greek yogurt, chopped artichoke hearts, and cheese in a medium bowl
  • Spread the mixture over the cooked chicken breasts and use the oven to broil for about 3-4 minutes
  • When the tops are golden and the cheese is melted they are ready to serve!
