That is why I put try ten new recipes on my 31 before 31 list, here is #1.
I adapted the recipe from a pin of course, Sugarlaw's Recipe. I did tweak it a little so make sure you go check it out, she made the recipe so easy!
- 12oz of chicken breast, I used tenders so I didn't have to pound them thin
- 1/4 cup of artichokes - I used a little over this & marinated artichokes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese - Sugarlaw's used white cheddar
- Salt & Pepper
Salt & pepper your chicken breast and sauté in the olive oil. I did all of my pieces at once and where I was wounded. I was a little too enthusiastic in my flinging the chicken in the pan.
Oil blow back all over my wrist, arm and tshirt. Smooth Leslie, real smooth. I will be honest I have never ever sautéed anything in oil. Besides the unfortunate oil splatter it was easy! And yummy. Wow, I learn something new everyday. Set aside your chicken after cooking.
Mix the mayo, cheese and chopped artichokes together in a bowl. Spread the mixture over the cooked chicken. Broil at 400 degrees until cheese is bubbly and the coating is golden. I was über vigilant with the broiling and it took forrrrrreeeeever in my oven. Just keep watch, you can burn this in a blink of an eye.
Shall we admire my artichoke crusted chicken again?
I rate this recipe 4 out of 5 oil spatters, easy to assemble and I gradients that don't break the bank or intimidate me, a very important factor. I feel accomplished, 1 recipe completed, 9 more to go! Oh and to brag, I even cooked my first risotto, from a box of course to go with the chicken. Move over Suzy Homemaker!
