We absolutely loved this veggie-ful chicken dish over polenta. I used microwave polenta to make the polenta (I did not use the cheese for this recipe though). I halved the amount of chicken and Italian seasoning and omitted the olive oil (just used cooking spray). I did include red pepper flakes which gives this dish a nice little kick. This was so filling and good for you that I'm sure we'll be making again. DH loved it - I thought he might lick the bowl!!! Ok, so I was tempted to do the same!
This was good. We like this sort of comfort food. I think it needed broth r something because between the artichokes & tomatoes it had a bit too much acidity. And there were too many veggies for 1lb chicken. This was a well written recipe for the contest. Best of luck to you!
A delicious and fast dinner treat. I slivered the carrots instead of grating and reduced the amount of Italian seasoning to 1 teaspoon of a dried quality spice blend. I did not use the red pepper flakes initially but did for leftovers. This makes very generous servings, maybe closer to 6 than 4. Good luck in RSC #13. This is a great creation.
