1 (14-oz.) can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
2 medium zucchini, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon lemon zest
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat; add onion and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes. Add rice, and cook 2 minutes or until golden brown. Add wine, and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until wine is absorbed. Add chicken broth. Bring to a boil, cover, and transfer to oven. Bake 20 minutes.
Remove rice from oven, and stir in artichokes and next 3 ingredients. Cover and bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in cheese and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
I made this with chicken from a rotisserie chicken (regular flavor) and it was very good. I used reduced fat & sodium chicken broth and didn't think it needed more salt...maybe just a touch. It good and a nice light dinner.
This was a good start. It was kind of bland and I'm not sure I like the lemon flavor. I ended up adding a lot of salt. Consider adding a lot of flavor to your chicken when cooked and that will definitely influence how this turns out.
