Stove-Top Smoky Chicken & Artichoke Dip

Stove-Top Smoky Chicken & Artichoke Dip from Bake Your Day

Well, we should maybe talk about where I’ve been lately.  I haven’t been slacking.  Kind of the opposite, actually.  Let me just say that never in my life have I had an understanding of the word “busy” like I have understood it in the past three months.

Let me also say that I love having that understanding.  I have taken a much-needed break from social media not necessarily by choice but by necessity.  I have had to reassess how I spend my time at home.  I haven’t been able to spend near as much time in the kitchen as I would like to.  Through it, though, I feel like I have gained an enormous amount of perspective on life – my priorities in regards to the blog and life.

I’m still figuring it all out – how to share recipes and stories here because I love to do it, while also balancing work and home and life.  But I want to say thank you to YOU.  Your emails and tweets and messages over the last months have meant the world.  I have definitely missed being here and I am really looking forward to getting back to some kind of posting regularity!

Stove-Top Smoky Chicken & Artichoke Dip from Bake Your Day

Let’s talk about this smoky chicken & artichoke dip – it’s one of those spontaneous ideas I had and knew immediately I needed to make it.  Paul loves smoky flavor in anything and I have really become a fan of artichoke dip.  And for a simple twist, I made it in a pan on the stove.  Super simple and so flavorful!

Stove-Top Smoky Chicken & Artichoke Dip

Yield: 4 cups

Total Time: 20 min

Smoked paprika, three cheeses, chicken, garlic and artichoke hearts...all done on the stove-top!

Ingredients:

2 tsp. olive oil
1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups chicken, shredded
12 ounces chopped artichoke hearts
1 tsp. smoked paprika
8 ounces room temperature cream cheese, cut into small cubes.
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for about 6 minutes, until fragrant and translucent. Stir in the chicken, chopped artichoke hearts, and smoked paprika and stir until warmed.

Add the cubed cream cheese and stir well until melted. Stir in the sour cream, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese and cook, stirring almost constantly, until melted and heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with veggies, crackers or tortilla chips.

Cassie's Notes:
I used light sour cream and 1/3-less fat cream cheese in this recipe because it's what I had on hand but you could use full fat for either of those ingredients if you prefer.

    So glad you’re back Cassie!! I’ve missed you – but I’m so glad you’ve had the time you needed to take a break and get that perspective. It’s a hard balance, and good for you for doing what’s best for YOU!!

    Since we moved two months ago I’m still trying to adjust to being a stay at home mom with a clingy 11 month old and being on social media and cooking. So glad you were able to take a step back and think about things but we are always here for when you post.

    OMG, drooling over here! This looks unreal, Cassie. If I served this at Thanksgiving, I don’t think I’d leave room for turkey! Thanks for sharing.

    I love dip so much, and this is such an amazing way to incorporate some protein besides my usual hummus and crisps/carrots!

    It is so good to see a post from you!! I’m also so happy you are finding balance and prioritizing at home. I must admit, I have been loving this “maternity leave” so far. I worked ahead of time so I could really lay low and enjoy the baby and I’m so glad I did. PS: I want this dip right this minute – love the smokiness!

    You’ve been missed, but take all the time you need if you return with recipes like this! I have a jar of smoked paprika that isn’t used nearly enough. Pinning this!

    It’s so important to step back and find balance, Cassie – and you know we’ll all be here when you dive back in! And I must say…this was a very good return to the kitchen – this dip looks absolutely to die for. My grocery store just started carrying artichoke hearts (a minor miracle), so I’m so excited to have new recipes to use them in!

    Abajo, en el relleno, el más común es el ganso y el pato, tanto por el color, se puede dividir en cachemira blanco y terciopelo gris. Abajo, en el mercado de acuerdo con el precio, más o menos: ganso blanco> Grey Goose> pato blanco> pato gris. Puede verse afectada por precio o menos, mucha gente podría pensar que este tipo de cachemira es cierto en términos de calidad, no lo es. A lo largo del estudio teórico y los aspectos prácticos de la experiencia, creo que el color y la calidad de la chaqueta no es muy buena o mala relación, ganso y pato en el grado cálido, suave y esponjosa o menos.
