Do you ever have a plan for dinner that you can’t wait to try only to realize halfway through cooking that you don’t have the exact ingredients you needed?   Yeah, that happens to me a lot.  This chicken actually started out as Greek chicken until I dumped a ton of Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomato Bruschetta, which has Italian spices in it, into my pan instead of the regular sun dried tomatoes….ooops!

Italian Chicken with Artichokes is an easy and delicious dish

Don’t worry, I tweaked a few other ingredients in order to “fix” this recipe.   I was worried it wouldn’t be good but it turns out this was a happy disaster.   The new dish was an Italian chicken with artichokes, mushrooms, and sun dried tomatoes.   I topped it with mozzarella.   It was delicious.  My husband liked it so much he told me to make sure to keep this recipe!Italian Chicken with Artichokes | Hezzi-D's Books and Cooks
