This recipe calls for lighter ingredients so it is not very heavy. It has the taste of a baked artichoke wrapped in lightly breaded chicken. I was trying to emulate the way the I like to eat my artichokes....breaded, covered with mozzarella cheese and dipped in butter. My family really enjoyed this one, hope you do too!
