I am always looking for chicken recipes & I came across this one in our local Publix ad. If you don’t have Publix supermarkets in your town, I’m so sorry. They are truly a wonderful grocery store & are my very favorite place to shop for groceries. I also shop at Walmart for some things, to save money of course, but overall for quality & service, Publix can’t be beat. This is three boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks.
Main ingredients are sun-dried tomatoes & artichoke hearts, how can you beat that combo?!
Chicken & other ingredients simmering in the pan.
I served this with baked sweet potatoes & a side spinach salad. Pretty healthy & tasty, don’t you think? Hubby loved this one, so it will stay on the list.
Sun-Dried Tomato Artichoke Chicken
1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast (I used 3)
1/4 cup flour (I decided to substitute Italian bread crumbs for the flour)
2 TBL Canola oil
1/2 cup white wine
Fresh thyme (I used dried & added it with all the other ingredients simmering)
1 lemon for juice (I used Real Lemon)
1 large can artichoke hearts (drained)
1/3 cup julienne-cut sun-dried tomatoes in oil (or if they are just dry, soak them for a few min)
2 TBL butter (I forgot to add the butter, it was still yummy)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 TBL Parmesean cheese
Preheat large saute pan on med-high 2-3 minutes. Cut chicken into 1 inch chunks, place in zip-loc bag (or used a large dish). Add flour (or bread crumbs) and coat chicken. Place oil in pan, swirl to coat. Add chicken & cook 2-3 min. turning once, until chicken begins to brown.
Stire in wine, reduce heat to med-low & cook 2-3 min. or until liquid is slightly reduced. Squeeze juice from lemon over chicken, stir in remaining ingredients (except thyme & cheese). Cover and cook 2-3 min. until done. Remove chicken from heat, stir in fresh thyme & sprinkle with parmesean.
You can see I made a couple of changes, but overall followed the recipe. It was really tasty!
Eat & Enjoy!
It appears from the organizing post that y’all are about as pathetic as I am about going through your magazines and either giving them away or throwing them out. It must be a shared sickness for decorating people or something. From the comments, I can see that this is a subject that is on many of your minds these days and that the magazines in particular are pretty difficult to keep a handle on. I do not want to become like my hubby’s 89-year old grandma, who lives with his mother. Their house is crammed to the gills with all of grandma’s stuff. She won’t get rid of anything! It’s going to be a BIG job when she is finally gone and the rest of us have to go through her things. That in itself is reason enough for me not to want to end up being a “hoarder” as some of you mentioned. My dad is a pretty good hoarder of old stuff himself, much to my mom’s dismay.
You have given me some great ideas on getting the recipes organized, so my plan is to get a binder of some sort with plastic sleeves to slip recipes into. That’s something I can do very soon and once it gets started, it should be pretty easy to keep updated on a regular basis. Thanks so much for all the suggestions. I really appreciate all the ideas. I’ll keep working on the magazine-aholic problem. Right now, I’m thinking I’ll donate the old ones!
Kay asked me a question about the lampshade fabric and there’s no way to contact you, Kay. So, the question was, can you use the black/cream color with any other color scheme. And my answer is YES! I absolutely think this fabric would work with many colors. Black/cream/tan are so neutral that I can see them mixed with so many other colors. I use a lot of black as accents in my home, so that is one thing to think about. If you have all pastels or very light colors, then one shot of black/cream might be too much, but for most colors, I’d say go for it! And if you don’t already use black accents, think about adding them. Black really grounds a room and adds a lot of interest. Think: picture frames, chandeliers, lamps, pillow fabrics, and even a piece of black furniture mixed in is great.
