Sherried Artichoke Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
Featuring a mushroom-tarragon gravy, Kathy Peters’ no-fuss entree is ideal for dinner parties and weeknight suppers alike. “The chicken is elegant and comes together easily,” she writes from North Versailles, Pennsylvania. Perhaps the largest benefit the main course offers, however, is the contribution it lends to a healthy cook’s recipe box. Try it, and you'll surely agree.

Delicious. Served to guests who ate all of it.

We enjoyed the flavor that the artichokes and sherry gave this dish. I didn't taste much tarragon, so I'll increase it to a full teaspoon next time. I served it with Jasmine rice.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2010

This recipe is awesome. I have served it multiple times to guests, and they always love it. My mother-in-law even asked for the recipe and subsequently served it at a party! The only change I make is I use 1 lb of chicken tenderloins, as they are easier to cook evenly.
