We eat a lot of chicken at our house. A lot. It seems to be that one protein everyone will eat. But sometimes it can get boring. And sometimes it can be dry. This recipe can shake things up a bit! Not only is it full of flavor, but the cooking method helps you get moist chicken every single time.
I learned about this technique for cooking chicken a few years ago and have been doing it this way ever since. The problem with using whole chicken breasts is that because they are so thick, the outside is often tough and overdone by the time the center is cooked through. And when chicken is over cooked, it basically has no flavor. But by cutting each chicken breast in half horizontally, the chicken cooks evenly. What you end up with is a moist, flavorful chicken breast!
Don’t forget about the artichoke topping, though. This topping contains two of my favorite flavors: artichokes and cheese. And not just cheese but three different kinds of cheese! The recipe is super easy to whip up, and only takes a few minutes under the broiler to melt and caramelize over the chicken.
Here’s how you make this super skillet dinner:
You will need two large chicken breasts, chopped artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, Swiss cheese, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, salt and pepper.
