Recipe by Halcyon Eve
I found this recipe online somewhere a few years ago and adapted it to suit our tastes. It's a delicious alternative to traditional beef stroganoff, with its creamy sauce full of tender chicken and delicious artichoke hearts! It also can be cooked and then transferred to a crockpot to keep hot for a few hours. I wouldn't keep it in the crockpot more than 2-4 hours, though, or the chicken might get too dry. Times are estimates.
- 13 ounces water-packed artichoke hearts, undrained
- 2 -3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons mixed Italian herbs, divided (or more to taste)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cubed
- 1⁄2 cup boiling water
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 8 ounces nonfat sour cream
- hot cooked rice or noodles
Directions See How It's Made
- Drain artichoke hearts, reserving 1/3 cup liquid, and set the artichoke hearts aside. Add enough olive oil to reserved liquid to make 1/2 cup. Stir in 1 Tbsp herbs.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté garlic in 1 Tbsp olive oil until garlic just begins to turn white (do not brown).
- Add onion and cook until just beginning to turn transparent (again, do not brown).
- Add chicken and 1/4 cup oil-herb mixture; cook until chicken is browned.
- Meanwhile, combine flour and remaining herbs in a small bowl and stir well. Add the flour mixture to remaining oil-herb mixture and stir until smooth. Pour over chicken. Stir to combine; add boiling water and stir.
- Bring mixture to a boil and cover, reduce the heat, and simmer 4-5 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove from heat.
- Stir in the reserved artichoke hearts and sour cream and heat through. Serve over hot rice or noodles.
