So, I know this is a little bland looking- but it's not bland tasting! I really like artichoke hearts. I get a huge jar from Costco. This was a hit with everyone in the family- the 2 littlest kids didn't eat the artichoke, but they ate the chicken and pasta.
Chicken and Artichoke Penne
16 ounces pasta
4 chicken breasts, cubed
1 cup artichoke hearts
1/2 cup "juice" from the artichoke hearts
1 cup half & half
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder (or corn starch)
Boil pasta, according to directions. Brown chicken breast in lightly oiled frying pan or skillet. When chicken is done (juices run clear) add the artichoke, juice and lemon juice. Allow to heat through. Mix arrowroot powder into half & half, slowly add to chicken. Stir until thickened and toss with cooked drained pasta.
