Party Panache, Artichoke Chicken Tartlettes

To lighten up holiday dishes, I have been experimenting with using Chobani Greek yogurt instead of sour cream as a part of the #MadewithChobani project

What better test than a game day appetizer?

We enjoyed these Artichoke Chicken Tartlettes over the weekend while watching the SEC championship Alabama/Missouri game, and they would be party perfect for your holiday entertaining


You will never miss the chips or the mayonnaise in this lightened up version of Spinach Artichoke Dip with Chicken


Yes, it is tucked into a sinful little pie shell crust, but trust me, little is the key word here, I got 24 tart shells out of one pie crust dough round …okay well, 23   😉


Saute onion, then add garlic, artichokes, and spinach


Once the spinach has cooked down, add the chicken, Chobani, and cheeses


Stir until the cheese melts


At this point you can refrigerate this mixture for up to 24 hours.  Use a round biscuit cutter or glass to cut pie dough, re-rolling scraps as you go

Put a heaping spoonful of filling into the pie crust rounds in a silicone mini muffin pan.  Silicone baking pans make removing the tartlettes a breeze.  If you use a regular baking pan, be sure to spray the wells thoroughly with cooking oil spray


Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes


Cool slightly and remove from pan

*put chicken in slow cooker with chicken broth to cover and cook on high for 3 hours. It will shred perfectly, and the broth adds flavor. You can even start with frozen chicken with this method

    What tasty little bites Jenna, perfect for the way we like to graze for the holidays or watching a game on TV! I love the idea of subbing the Greek yogurt for sour cream to save a few calories and boosting the protein 🙂

    These look wonderfully delicious! I could eat a whole tray. Which reminds me, when I saw the title of this post all I could think of was John Lovitz in a Friends episode. I found a clip on YouTube.
    It makes me laugh every time.

  3. This looks so good –definitely saving it. I have been using Chobani plain yoghurt for a long time in place of sour creme because I like it, and because I am lactose intolerant. (Goat milk has no lactose, so I am told) I have never noticed any significant difference in any recipe result. I also add it to any box mixes like cakes or muffins. I think it is just great stuff!

    I’d love to be your guinea pig for game day treats:@) These sound great and since they’re a little lighter I can have an extra one!

  5. These look so delicious. I think these would be perfect for our family Christmas Eve gathering…thanks so much for sharing and the recipe!!

  6. Hi Jenna, we watched the Tide roll right over Missouri as well! Too bad we didn’t have these delicious appetizers to enjoy during the game! They sound delicious! I would have to omit the chicken because my husband is allergic to chicken! Yes, I know, it’s a weird allergy!

  7. Kitty says:

    Jenna, these little tarts are calling my name! I love artichoke dip and adding chicken and pie crust…oh my! Fabulous!

  8. I am definitely pinning this! My family loves artichoke dip so they are sure to love these.
