Flavors ~Artichokes~ 'Artichoke Chicken with Lemon Zest'

Y'all know by now that the flavor of the week is Artichokes.
I would love to get my hands on some of those fresh artichokes that we can get right off the plant in Italy. Porca Miseria . . . I will have to settle for canned artichoke hearts. Now. . . what to do?
I love me some Artichoke Dip.
So I decided to take the same ingredients and turn it into a yummy dish.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!
Artichoke Chicken with Lemon Zest
4 chicken breasts
4 GARLIC cloves
1 tsp THYME
2 LEMON, juice and zest
2 cups of artichokes, drained and chopped
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup parmiggianoPre-heat the oven to 350°

Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper, set aside. In a bowl, combine diced artichoke hearts, minced garlic, thyme, lemon juice and mayo. Stir in Parmiggiano cheese. Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish, top with artichoke dip. Cover and bake for 35 minutes or until cooked through, uncover and bake another 5-10 minutes until toasty on top.
Serve each chicken breast with a topping of artichoke dip and a nice green side.
That is fit for company!Join us for the ride on Facebook and our blog Flavors .
