I received this recipe via email from my mom in April 2009. I don’t remember where she said she found it but I have made it many times. It is very low in calories and fat and uses very simple and inexpensive ingredients and has flavors reminiscent of food from the Mediterranean region. I think that is why I love it so much because it tastes like food I grew up with (my mom’s family is Armenian and my dad is Macedonian).
Here is what you need
- 4 boneless and skin-less chicken breasts
- 2 cans of artichoke hearts (original recipe called for one, but I like to add more artichoke)
- 1 can of chicken broth
- the juice of one lemon
- 2 tablespoons of fresh mint (I love the taste of mint and lemon together, so I always add more; maybe about 1/2 cup chopped; see above photo)
Once all the ingredients have cooked together, serve over rice, couscous, or as you see below I chose quinoa. The recipe also calls for feta cheese sprinkled over the top, but I always omit that because I feel that the feta cheese would over power the taste of the dish.
