Easy Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes & Artichokes

This is a quick, satisfying meal perfect for a busy night during the week.  I found this on Pinterest, but tweaked it, so here's my version....

Chicken breasts + the above is all you need.  Disclaimer:  I did not use white wine, it was bad and I wasn't going to open a new one up on a Tuesday night. (No really a bottle of wine went wasted in our home...shame). I used a cup of chicken broth instead.

This was assembled, not cooked yet.  Messy, but pretty.

This was after.  We scarfed it down, so no pretty plated picture.

Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes & Artichokes

4 Chicken Breasts
2 Cloves of Garlic
1/2 Cup of  sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped
1 Cup marinated artichoke hearts, undrained
1 Cup Chicken Broth
1/2 package (or to taste) of Onion Soup Recipe Mix (You know the one)

Preheat Oven to 350*

In a large bowl mix all ingredients (except chicken broth), including chicken, until the chicken is well-coated.  Pour chicken broth in roasting or baking dish.  Place chicken breasts with all of the good stuff on top in a roasting dish and cover with foil.  Bake for 20 minutes with foil.  Remove foil and continue baking for 10-15 minutes.  Serve with rice, pasta or additional vegetables.


Original recipe called for 2 tbsp. of add'l olive oil.  Doesn't need it...oil from the artichokes & tomatoes is enough.

Chicken broth or wine isn't necessary or called for, I just find it nicely steams the chicken breasts and keeps them moist.

A full packet of the onion soup is cloying.  Unless you are an onion soup fanatic, a 1/2 package will suffice.

Thanks for visiting!!
