This easy but elegant entree first appeared in "Quick Cooking" magazine. Someone posted this at the Somersize website, which is where I found it. I usually have this over a bed of fried spinach or zucchini ribbons.
- 1 (14 ounce) can water-packed artichoke hearts, well drained and chopped
- 3⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 3⁄4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 dash garlic powder or 2 garlic cloves
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Spray an 11x7 inch baking dish with Pam.
- Salt and pepper the chicken breast halves and place in the dish.
- In a bowl, combine the artichoke hearts, parmesan cheese, mayonnaise and garlic powder; mix well.
- Spread artichoke mixture over chicken breasts.
- Bake, uncovered, 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
I thought this was excellent! I used miracle whip instead of mayo because of the comments that the meal was rich. I also added spinach and mushrooms into the mixture. I then topped the dish with breadcrumbs. This will definitely become part of the meal rotation at my house!
This has turned into my hubbys favorite meal, and has turned into a must have dinner. I just recently tried some of the tips on the other comments, and used 2/4 cup mayo (the kind made with olive oil) and the last 1/4 cup using light sour cream and it was fabulous! I also used the marinated artichoke hearts over the regular ones, the flavor is just delish! Truly one of my favorite meals to make.
I have a recipe for Artichoke dip that has the exact same ingredience (less the chicken) so I decided to try this. The only change I made was I added about a 1/4 cup of half and half to water down the artichoke mixture. I didn't make it runny, just a little less thick than it is. I served this over a bed of white rice along with side salads and garlic bread. It was a major hit!
