    breezermom's Note:

    This was clipped from an old magazine...I found it at my mother's house stuffed in a recipe box. The notes say that it is what new bride's should serve the first time she has her parents and in-laws over together, in order to make a good impression.

    1. 1
      Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer to a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish, reserving the drippings in the skillet.
    2. 2
      Add the remaining 1/4 cup butter to the skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until the butter melts; add the mushrooms, and saute until tender. Remove the mushrooms from the skillet, reserving the drippings in the skillet.
    3. 3
      Place the mushrooms and halved artichoke hearts on top of the chicken. Sprinkle with the crushed tarragon.
    4. 4
      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    5. 5
      Add flour to the drippings in the skillet, stirring until smooth. Cook over low heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add the broth; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat, and stir in sherry.
    6. 6
      Pour the sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle with parsley. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until the chicken is done.

      This was really good but we found the taste of the artichokes unusual. Since we seldom eat them - I would think it was just our preferences. I would definitely make this again but use onions or celery instead of artichokes. I also cut the butter in half and used a tad more chicken broth. Served with brown rice.

      Delicious and it has such a beautiful presentation! I can see why a Bride would want to serve it to her in-laws!! I made only one change -- I used chicken thighs vs. breasts, but made everything else according to the recipe. Will make again especially when I have guests or family that I want to impress! Made for the Newest Zaar tag, June, 2012.
