Aren't Ya Happy About Artichokes?

I discovered something new about myself last week. I love artichokes!

Who knew?

I already knew I loved easy, few-ingredient meals, but this one hits it out of the ball park. If you're unsure your down with the artichoke sickness, please give this a shot before totally dismissing it. The artichokes really give the baked chicken a savory flavor, and better yet, they fill you up without adding a whole lot of calories.

Other Benefits of Using Artichokes:

  • High in potassium (balances sodium intake and blood sugar)
  • High in fiber (promotes digestion and the "full" feeling)
  • Antioxidants (builds immune system and fights disease)


Ingredients:

  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can artichokes (in water)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste


Directions:

  1. Bake the chicken and garlic in a greased baking dish at 350 degrees (low-medium) for 45 mins - 1 hour. 
  2. Top the chicken with the artichokes and tomatoes (spread evenly).
  3. Bake again for another 15 - 20 mins.


The chicken is so tender and juicy. It's delicious. Like all good things in life, this meal is simple, quick and inexpensive. ;)
