How to make Smoked Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Chicken

Start with two large chicken breasts.

Butterfly them, which basically means to slice them almost all the way through, lengthwise.

Then stuff each with the spinach and artichoke dip, which works best if the dip is cold.

Just about 1 1/2 cups of the dip should fit perfectly for two large chicken breasts.

Fold the chicken closed and season all sides with kosher salt, pepper, and Old Bay seasoning.

Cook time will largely depend on the size of the chicken.

About 1 1/2 hours total, but monitor the internal temperature and remove them once it’s above 165 degrees.
