Instant Pot Artichoke Spinach Chicken
If you spend any time on the internet at all you must have heard about the spinach artichoke craze. The popular keto spinach artichoke dip set forth a spark among foodies all over. That, along with how popular the Instant Pot is to use, created this simple but delicious recipe that everyone begs you to make.
Keto Spinach Artichoke Dip
A simple blend of spinach, artichokes, Parmesan cheese and a few other ingredients set the dip scene on fire quite some time ago. People can not get enough of this stuff. So, naturally we started looking at ways to enjoy the flavors other than just eating chips with the dip. The low carb spinach artichoke chicken dish was born.
Low Carb Spinach Artichoke Meets Chicken
It wasn’t long before chicken was introduced to the famous dip. Why? Well, because chicken is just as popular and probably because we are also always trying to find things to do with it. In an effort to jazz up chicken and change up keto spinach artichoke dip, this was a no brainer.
There are a lot of delicious recipes floating around that use stuff the spinach and artichoke into a chicken breast. GENIUS. But, it has been done by so many that we had to find a different way. Why not incorporate the always popular Instant Pot? Since it is yet another craze taking the internet by storm, I knew the two should meet!

Or, quick chicken dishes like this one, instant pot spinach artichoke chicken. This dish is ready in about 20 minutes and requires nothing fancy. Basically add all the ingredients and stir. That is it! Let’s get started.
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.
