Serves: 4 person(s)

Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 30 mins

Ingredients:

    1 Tbsp olive oil
    2 skinless organic chicken breasts
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 small sweet onion, chopped
    1 Tbsp butter
    1 dash each of salt and pepper, or Maggi Seasoning
    8 oz shitake mushrooms, cut into pieces
    1 (14 oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered (unmarinated)
    1 cup canned diced tomatoes with liquid
    1/2 cup grated reduced-fat Italian Blend cheese (such as Sargento Reduced-Fat 4 Cheese Italian)

Directions:

    Add olive oil to large frying skillet. Brown chicken breasts until golden brown. Add garlic, onion, butter, and seasonings. Stir and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, until onion and garlic are tender.

    Add shitake mushrooms and artichoke hearts. Cover and cook for another 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes.

    Sprinkle cheese covering all ingredients. Cook 5 minutes, then turn heat off, cover, and let stand a few minutes to let cheese melt. Serve.

Variations:

    If desired, replace artichoke hearts with asparagus.

    Salt and pepper, or the Maggi Seasoning can be replaced with other seasonings, such as a combination of Costco's Roasted Garlic Mediterranean Sea Salt Grinder and Lawry's Seasoned Pepper.
