With a buttery, cheesy, crunchy topping and oodles of flavor in every bite, this Chicken Florentine Artichoke Bake is hard to resist! Everyone loves this dish, and there’s no cream sauce, so it’s lighter than some other casseroles.

Artichokes, sundried tomatoes, and spinach are the stars of this easy dish, practically a 1-dish casserole. You have to sautee the onions first, but then everything gets mixed together and baked until bubbly, hot, and delish.

How To Make The Best Chicken Florentine Artichoke Bake

  1. Preheat your oven to 350-F and spray a 9×13-inch casserole dish – or similar-sized dish – with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cook the pasta to al dente according to the package directions, then drain it and run it under cold water to chill. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, saute the onion in the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  4. Whisk the eggs and the milk in a large bowl. Add the Italian seasoning and dried pepper flakes.
  5. Add the cooked chicken, Monterey Jack cheese, artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and drained pasta to the bowl and toss well to mix.
  6. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish.
  7. Melt the remaining butter in a small bowl and mix in the Parmesan cheese and Panko bread crumbs. Sprinkle this over the top of the casserole.
  8. Cover with foil ake at 350-F for 20 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for 10 minutes or until hot and bubbly in the center and golden brown on top.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Leftover baked, grilled, or rotisserie chicken works fabulously in this dish.
  • Make sure to squeeze all the water out of the spinach before adding it.
  • You can use any shape of pasta, but short shapes like bowties or penne work best.
