Reviews for Sherried Artichoke Chicken
"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."
"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."
