Cheesy Bow Tie Chicken

Here's a super-simple dish that tastes like it's straight from a nice Italian restaurant. Spinach-artichoke dip is usually available in supermarket delis. It comes frozen, too. Just make sure to thaw it according to the package directions before dinnertime. —Sally Sibthorpe, Shelby Township, Michigan

    This is surprisingly good, much like Chicken Alfredo with more flavor. I did need to add some chicken broth to provide more sauce. This yummy dish comes together in a flash. We loved it.
