I love using store-bought French bread and filling it with ingredients and baking the bread. It’s like hearty homemade pizza but so easy to make since you skip baking the dough.

This recipe is for those that love spinach artichoke dip. We take the dip to a whole new level by adding chicken to the mixture and topping it over the bread loading the bread with cheese. Once baked, the flavors are amazing.
