Ready In:




  • Bake potatoes or boil pasta to serve with chicken.
  • Preheat a broiler or charcoal grill to cook chicken.
  • In a small bowl, combine chicken breasts, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper. Stir to coat the chicken breasts.
  • Wash and quarter mushrooms. Peel and cut onions into thin strips. Chop garlic, wash and quarter Roma tomatoes lengthwise. Drain artichokes and measure out remaining ingredients.
  • Place chicken breasts in broiler or on grill and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

    We just made this for dinner, and WOW! My girlfriend said it tastes just like it does at the restaurant. We used pre-ground pepper and would recommend reducing it to only 1tsp (it was kind of spicy.

    This dish was incredible! I made mine with Farfalle (bow-tie pasta) because that is what I had in the cabinet. Definitely worth the time and I'll be making it again soon. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!
