foodie friday! artichoke crusted chicken.


i have a new favorite pastime. that would be pinning recipes on pinterest.
this recipe is basically artichoke cheese dip baked on a chicken breast. brilliant. so easy and so yummy. and all ingredients i always have on hand. we had it with corn and baked sweet potato.


2 six-ounce chicken breasts, pounded thin
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/3 cup grated white cheddar cheese
Salt
Pepper

Salt and pepper the chicken and then sauté each chicken breast in 1 tbsp olive oil on medium-high heat, for about 8-10 minutes, flipping once, or until the juices run clear when pierced with a fork. Set aside.

Mix together the mayonnaise, artichoke hearts and cheddar cheese until evenly distributed. Spread the mixture over the sauteed chicken breasts, and then broil at 400 degrees for about 3 minutes. Do not take your eyes off them — broiling can lead to burning faster than you can imagine. When the cheese is melted and bubbling and the tops are golden, remove and serve.

Serves 2.
