  • 9 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine*
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans artichoke heart quarters, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. Remove and discard skin and bones from chicken breasts. Cut chicken breasts into strips, and set aside.

  2. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; add mushrooms and onion, and sauté 6 minutes. Add garlic, and sauté 2 minutes. Remove mushroom mixture from skillet.

  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the same skillet over medium heat; add chicken strips, and cook 10 minutes or until chicken is tender. Stir in wine, and cook 5 minutes. Return mushroom mixture to skillet, stirring well. Remove skillet from heat.

  4. Melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan. Whisk in flour until blended and smooth. Gradually whisk in milk, and cook, whisking constantly, 5 minutes or until mixture thickens. Stir in artichokes and next 3 ingredients.

  5. Spoon chicken mixture into an 11- x 7-inch baking dish; top evenly with the artichoke mixture.

  6. Bake at 300° for 15 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with parsley.

  7. *Chicken broth may be substituted for white wine.
