Made this tonight for dinner. The chicken I used was fairly thick so I cut the breasts in half lengthwise, making 7 pieces. Turned out great. Next time I might zest the lemon into it. Was concerned it might be bland, but it wasn’t. The frozen artichoke hearts were wonderful. First time I used them. We will add this in the dinner rotation and I placed the book on reserve at the library to check out a few more of the recipes.
