    foxfyre's Note:

    This is an adaptation of my Artichoke Chicken with Rice recipe (#183814). The pesto saves time on mixing up seasonings, and lends a wonderfully rich flavor to the rice. PLEASE NOTE: Due to comments on this and my similar recipe I've noted that you need to use converted or brown rice for this to turn out right.

      I like all of these ingredients separately, but when you put them together, it just didn't work for me. My daughter, who will eat most anything I cook took a pass on it tonight. I felt there was too much of an artichoke taste going on. Maybe cutting the artichokes to 1/2 a can would be better. But another problem was the pesto sauce. It soaked into the rice turning it a greenish grey color. Not a very attractive dish when served. Sorry. :-(

      Unfortunately we didn't like it... The taste of the pesto was not a good combination with the chicken... And I used a delicious basil pesto I buy at Sam's.

      Easy and adaptable. I have made this about 3 times now and have made it a different way each time. I now add frozen spinach and I only use about 4 tbsp of pesto and the taste is fine. This is a keeper for me.
