Chicken with Artichokes and Spinach

February 12, 2013



I would say that we have been busy lately, but we are always busy so I guess that’s just life.  Each day is packed with different things that keep us on our toes and running all around.  


For as busy as we are, one thing I usually keep straight is my menu.  I have to plan in advance to make sure I have the ingredients I need for making dinners.

 But, sometimes that doesn’t always happen.  

And sometimes that is how delicious dinners are born. 


This artichoke chicken dish came together with things from my pantry that didn’t require waking a sleeping peanut for a trip to the store.  It’s a perfectly decadent throw-together meal.
