  1. made this for 2 and used a tsp kosher salt and a tsp freshly ground black pepper. Bland. So, I added 1/4 cup crumbled Feta Cheese and that did wonders. For the last 5 minutes on the stove, I added 1 1/2 C cubed rotisserie chicken and the artichokes so that would heat through. The recipe doesn't spec artichokes in water or marinated ones. I used the former but I think the marinated ones would add a lot to the final dish, including giving it a smoother, silkier mouth feel with the additional oil.


<p>My rating system: (I don't like giving bad reviews, so if I don't like it, I'll just not review it.) <br /><br />5 Stars OMG, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
