{Recipe} One Pan Italian Chicken & Artichoke Bake

Ya'll know how I feel about chicken.  It is NEVER something I crave.  I'm actually quite jealous of those who do yearn for it.  Maybe I'd be a pant size smaller if I ate more chicken & less...everything else.  But, I do have to say, this chicken was pretty damn good & SO easy to make.  I love one pan dishes & I know Joey my dishwasher appreciates them too.  I did lie just a little bit though, this recipe does require one mixing bowl in addition to the baking pan, but I swear, that's it!  This chicken packs a ton of flavor, plus it's surrounded by artichoke, tomato & topped with low fat cheese. I'd say that's a win!  The original recipe served this dish over pasta. Personally, I think that would have been a bit too much so we ate it just as is.  I'll be making this again, so I think next time I might try serving over some rice!

  1. Yum! Do you think I could use chicken breast cutlets (8) instead of 4 halved chicken breasts?

    1. Oh totally! Any chicken I'm sure would easily substitute!
