[recipe] Sun-Dried Tomato Artichoke Chicken With Arugula Mushroom Salad

I’m always trying to find good healthy recipes, and came across this one that we absolutely love. I just made this dish last Monday, and it was better than I remembered. The dish has an earthy flavor that is balanced with hints of tang and sweetness. Each flavor is beautifully married with each other. ENJOY!


Sun-Dried Tomato Artichoke Chicken

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1 3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1″ pieces
1/4 cup flour (I omitted this)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup white wine (I substituted chicken broth)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 (14-oz) can quartered artichoke hearts (drained)
1/3 cup julienne-cut sun-dried tomatoes
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat large saute pan on medium-high for 2-3 minutes. Place flour and chicken in large zip-loc bag; seal and shake to coat. Place oil in pan then add chicken; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned.
  2. Stir in wine. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 2-3 minutes or until liquid is slightly reduced.
  3. Sprinkle lemon juice over chicken; stir in remaining ingredients (except thyme and cheese) and cover; cook 2-3 minutes or until chicken is 165°F. Remove pan from heat; stir in thyme and sprinkle with cheese. Serve.
