To be perfectly transparent and honest here, my 4 year old hates this and would not even take two bites. My husband on the other hand ate this right out of the pot!

Lately I have been craving spinach dip like crazy! I have been trying to watch what I eat and hit the gym every day so you can imagine how annoying that can be when you really want something. I decided to treat myself for dinner tonight (and because I can’t just sit down with a loaf of bread and dip), I threw together everything I was craving in my Instant Pot.

The end result turned out to be something out of this world! It is the perfect combination of pesto, chicken, and spinach that really pulls this meal together. Just a quick note about the artichokes, I can eat them right out of the can so I didn’t cut mine like the recipe calls for. I just wanted to mention that so if you see the big artichoke pieces in the pictures it didn’t throw you off.
