I was about to rate this one start, but the chicken and sauce were pretty good. The artichokes were so terribly bland as well as the breadcrumbs. Also, this recipe is divided into so many steps that it takes a long time to finish and the end results are far from worth all the time spent preparing it. I could not even eat the artichokes and I was so excited to use the cute baby artichokes I bought. Oh well, this was NOT for me.

Review #1 is correct; this one needs work-- artichoke hearts are badly undercooked, and need both garlic and white wine to braise. Chicken breasts were salty; only an hour or so in the brine is fine. You don't need to roast; just toast crumbs (season them, too) in olive oil in pan, set aside; braise artichoke hearts, set aside; fry chicken breasts, set aside. Make sauce and combine all. One pan, much faster
