September 17-Italian Chicken

I may be a newbie to the blog world, but I've quickly grown to love it. It's like a little neighborhood of cooks, mommies, crafters, and writers! I was blog-browsing and stumbled across this scrumptious recipe for Italian Chicken  by blogger Jill (Thanks!). 

As I write this, my belly is full and completely satisfied. What a delicious dish!

Italian Chicken
(This recipe is based on the measurements I used. Some are slightly different than the original.)
4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
5 roma tomatoes, cored and chopped
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 small jar artichoke hearts, drained
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Splenda or sugar
2 tbsp flour
salt and pepper
mozzarella cheese, shredded

1. Combine tomatoes, garlic, artichoke hearts, olive oil, sugar, flour, and salt and pepper in a bowl.
2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Lay in a baking dish, with tomato mixture.
3. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, until chicken is almost done.
4. Add mozzarella cheese and basil. Return to oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes until cheese is golden and vegetables are caramelized. 
5. Enjoy!
