Today’s recipe is something I’ve been meaning to share with you for a long time. It’s one of my favorite healthy and fast meals, and it includes one of my favorite ingredient combinations – spinach and artichokes. I mean, everyone loves spinach and artichokes together, right?

But, it always seems that they come at the expense of some creamy – and oh-so-fattening – additions, like cream cheese or sour cream. Items that, even though I might want to, I can’t include in my daily menu for several reasons.

When I set out to create this recipe, I wanted to keep things as light as I possibly could. That meant finding flavor without all that fat. I used chicken tenders and added capers, onion, garlic and lemon to create a skillet meal that cooks in under 20 minutes.

I usually serve this recipe with some brown rice, mashed potatoes or a simple tomato salad, but it would really go great with just about anything you want.

    This was so good! I always have a jar of Cook’s Pantry artichokes on hand, but I’m typically too lazy to do anything but eat them right out of the jar. Finally decided to include them in a dinner dish and found this recipe – so glad I did! The flavor combinations of the spinach and chicken worked so well! Thanks for sharing!
