A dish my husband made for me and I never get sick of it! Can easily be turned into a vegetarian dish by omitting the chicken. However, if you decide not to include the chicken I would reduce the cooking time. I just go by the tomatoes appearance (withered). EDIT: If you are using jarred marinated artichokes, do not add anymore oil. It seems to be too oily that way. I also add sliced mushrooms to this dish for the vegetarian version.
