Chicken breasts with mushrooms and artichokes in a white wine cream sauce. This is my personal favorite. Serve with saffron rice, a green veggie of your choice, and the rest of the wine, of course! Enjoy!

  • While the chicken is baking, place the chicken stock, garlic, and onion in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in wine, and continue to cook until reduced and slightly thickened.

  • Add the mushrooms and artichokes to the chicken stock mixture. Reduce heat, and simmer until mushrooms are tender. Stir in the heavy cream, and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Season with salt and pepper, and serve over the baked chicken.

I realized I could offer a very important suggestion to those who had difficulty in getting their sauce to thicken and who did so by adding cornstarch. Please do not thicken with cornstarch! If you start the sauce well in advance and are patient you will end up with something that is truly magnificent. By allowing enough time for this to reduce and thicken on its own it will become concentrated producing a luxurious rich velvety and very flavorful sauce. Once the stock and wine have been reduced add the cream and continue boiling. Also rather than baking the chicken as directed I cooked it in a skillet for more flavor and color (having started the sauce well in advance of the chicken). I dredged the chicken in flour salt and pepper then quickly browned it in olive oil. Added the mushrooms to the chicken and then the artichokes (I used frozen) during the last few minutes. Meantime the lovely cream sauce is boiling away and thickening in a separate saucepan! Once the sauce is thickened add it to the pan with the chicken. This is a spectacular dish with an absolutely outstanding sauce! Read More

Sorry nobody liked this. We found it much too salty and the flavor was off. The only change I made was to leave out the artichoke hearts because I forgot to get them while I was at the grocery. I'm wondering if it was something I did because none of the ingredients are particularly salty (except the salt obviously but I omitted it) but I don't think I'll be trying it again. Thanks anyway.

Delicious sauce. Per previous comments I used marinated artichoke hearts. The sauce was extremely thin - I recommend thickening it with some cornstarch. Read More

We liked this one the wine didn't have a strong flavor. A few changes...I cooked the chicken in a pan with olive oil and seasoned the chicken with salt pepper onion and garlic powder. I first sauted the onion and garlic in olive oil and then put in chicken broth and let it reduce which took a while. The chicken breasts I used were pretty thick so the sauce had plenty of time to reduce. I also used milk instead of cream. What I did was in a separate sauce pan use 1 cup 2% milk and 1/4 cup butter then get it to a boil to melt the butter. Then I put it in a small food processor to emulsify it. Tasted good and I didn't have to go buy cream. Read More

I've made this twice and both times I had trouble getting the sauce to thicken properly - add a little corn starch and keep cooking it... it eventually gets there when you take it off the heat. Very good though. I used marinated artichoke hearts and poured the oil from those in with the baking chicken. Read More

Absolutely delicious. And easy easy easy. I used those idividually frozen chicken breasts for simplicity and since they had to bake a bit longer I had plenty of time to let the chicken stock reduce. Take the time to reduce folks.... that's what gives your kitchen/house time to start smelling so great! I read one review about it being 'too salty ' but since this recipe only calls for 'salt to taste ' how can you blame the recipe? Next time I will use half-and-half instead of heavy cream. I used one small boiler onion (because I don't like having stinky half-onions hanging around my house) and when I added the cream I added one chopped fresh tomato for color. A little fresh spinach might be yummy too. Yum Yum Yum! Read More

Like the previous reviewer (Naples) said if you start the sauce well before starting the chicken and be patient it does form into this thick creamy sauce just like the recipe states. I have never reviewed anything before this but it was just THAT good! I also pan fried the chicken to give it some color and texture before I finished this in the oven. I will be using this recipe regularly!! Read More

4 's because I only made the sauce. (5 's for the sauce). I also didn't follow the directions for the sauce but kept the ingrediants as called for except for reducing the wine to 1/2. I pan fried chicken breasts (pounded and breaded with crumbs/Parmesan cheese)then deglazed the pan with the wine. I had previously fried the onions garlic and mushrooms and then added all the liquid. I put the artichokes in very last. Like others my sauce didn't thicken but it tasted wonderful. Read More

Excellent flavor and pretty presentation! This is a definite keeper. My family loved it. I won't change a thing. Some reviewers suggested using marinated hearts but I feel they may change the flavor and make it a bit oily. Its perfect as is!Thanks for sharing Kim. Read More

This is PERFECT for entertaining and very easy to make. I agree that cornstarch is a good choice at the end and I end up cooking it longer as well to thicken the sauce a bit. I also use marinated artichoke hearts because I love their flavor. This is a fantastic recipe and everyone that I have made it for raves!!! Thank you so much Kim!! Read More
