It turned out very tasty but I made some changes. I cooked my chicken in olive oil, a little bit of butter and minced garlic with a dash of white wine (don't need any of it if you don't have it but it gives the chicken an individual flavor to compliment the sauce). I also added a dash of basil into the pan to give it a little punch. Then I assembled all the stuff for the sauce, added a little butter to that, and voila! I used a pesto from walmart that was 2 bucks, sun dried tomato pesto and I only used a little less then half of it (going to make something else with it tonight!). Overall very tasty-- oh and I used an entire bag of parmesan cheese-- I thought that the sauce was a bit sour (and a little less of the diced tomatoes). It was great (I LOVE artichokes) and I look forward to playing with it some more in the future!
