Making our Keto Spinach Artichoke Dip Chicken
Full recipe card below
Roughly chop spinach and artichokes. Set aside.
Add diced chicken to Instant Pot that is set to SAUTE and has been drizzled with Olive oil. Brown.
Add artichokes and continue to SAUTE for a few minutes.
Press cancel on the instant pot and set to “keep warm”.
Note- Typically dairy doesn't do well in the instant pot unless a low setting is used. We find that the “keep warm” setting melts cheeses perfectly while keeping everything hot.
Stir in remaining ingredients.
Stir in cream, cheeses and spinach. Replace cover, hold on “keep warm” for 10 minutes.
Stir every 5 minutes until mixture is smooth and creamy.
