Hasselback Chicken with Spinach and Artichoke – Sheet pan (VIDEO)
This Hasselback Chicken with Spinach and Artichoke might be your new favorite way to prepare chicken. Rounded out with a few vegetables, this is a perfect weeknight meal!
It’s definitely no secret that I love sheet pan dinners. It’s become clear that I am not alone in my obsession — my sheet pan apple gouda stuffed chicken breasts have become wildly popular…have you tried them yet? I mean, really, what is better than a meal prepared all on one pan? Easy clean up, very little attention required…it’s a dream come true. I made crispy chicken thighs with dijon and dill — complete with roasted green beans and radishes — they’re the easiest crispy chicken you’ll ever make.
And these! This hasselback chicken might be my favorite chicken recipe yet.
Check out that cheese, spinach and artichoke oozing out of that perfect chicken! I love making hasselback chicken because you get some of the filling with every bite you take.
I partnered with Just BARE® chicken for this recipe, using one of their Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Family Packs. I love the family packs more than anything, because I love leftovers! It’s the same reason I always buy big packs of chicken to grill.
About this Hasselback Chicken Recipe:
This recipe is perfect for weeknight dinner because, like other sheet pan dinners, it’s super quick, easy and you don’t have to dirty many pans. This one is slightly more labor-intensive because of the process of hasselbacking the chicken (I’m sure hasselbacking isn’t a word but we’re going with it). However, here’s your game plan:
- Night before: Prep chicken by cutting slits in it and wrapping it up and putting it in the fridge. Prep filling as well, cover bowl and stick in the fridge. Place artichoke hearts not used in filling in a zip-top bag…and put that in the fridge too.
- Day of: Place stuffing in chicken, bake!
Or you could do it all the day of…it still won’t take long and dinner will be amaaaaazing.
Why Hasselback? What does Hasselback mean?
You may have heard of Hasselback potatoes, which are the most common recipe using a hasselback method. The potatoes are amazing because they get crispy edges and are still soft and tender on the inside. The reason I like the Hasselback method for this chicken is because it cooks quickly and you get a bite of the spinach artichoke throughout the whole chicken. It’s better than stuffing chicken in my opinion because it doesn’t all ooze out while it cooks. Plus, it’s super cool looking if you’re looking to impress someone!
Don’t like tomatoes? Try this recipe with broccoli or bell peppers for some variety. It will be great will almost any veggie you have in your fridge!
Tip: Want to make this into a great gluten-free or keto dinner? Try serving it with mashed cauliflower.

Husband’s take: He loved this!
Changes I would make: NONE! I might throw some additional vegetables on if I had them but the chicken is PERFECT as is. If I do say so myself.
Difficulty: Easy to moderate. The perk is that it looks fancy but it’s not that hard to make.
