Baked Italian Chicken

So I made this baked chicken last night and I was impressed. It was one of those wow moments you get when something turns out really good. My son wouldn't touch it because it has spinach, artichokes and mushrooms, but my daughter loved it. Seriously raved on and on about it. And it was relatively easy. The only extra step besides chopping is cooking the onions and mushrooms before putting it all in a casserole pan and baking it. You could probably skip that step if you don't mind onions being crunchy. I'm calling this Baked Italian Chicken. The sauce is so darn tasty and it makes enough to serve it over pasta if you'd like. Enjoy!

Cook the onions and the mushrooms in the 2 tablespoons of butter and a drizzle of olive oil until tender. Remove from heat. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk the dressing mix, garlic powder, and black pepper into the cream cheese mixture until smooth. Stir in the tomatoes, artichokes, mushrooms, onions, and spinach.
