I love artichokes and lemon together. I prefer long cooking rice over instant, but using it here speeds things up. This recipe is from Cooking Light.

This was definitely a nice, light filling dish. I did add some minced garlic along with the ingredients. I wasn't sure how it would turn out, I usually have to have a sauce for almost everything, but I was pleasantly surprised!!! Thanks for posting. Raylene:)

Quick and Easy recipe. I thought it was a little bland last night so we added some sour cream to it... today the flavors are much more intense and I can taste the lemon. Next time I will add more lemon juice and maybe use marinated artichokes.

I made this last night for my hubby and it was a big hit! I love lemon chicken, and this was very lemony! I did add more lemon juice, and a few extra herbs, as my husband does not like red peppers, so I had to omit them. Fabulous! I will be making this time and again, and even change up the veggies, using asparagus or broccoli! Thanks so much!!!
