I cannot express how much I would love to go to Europe. I love European everything… European history, fashion, architecture, apparently men (Andrew is Hungarian). But I especially love the food. I imagine it will be a few years before I can physically be in Europe eating European food… So I have done well holding myself over by finding some delicious recipes. This one I’ve named “A Little Taste of Italy,” inspired by Jill’s recipe found here. I altered a few things for myself but she did a phenomenal job – here we go!
- 3 Roma tomatoes
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 small jar of artichokes/juice strained
- 2 large tablespoons of oil of your choice (I use avocado oil or coconut oil for cooking/baking)
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1-1.5 cup of mozzarella cheese
- Several fresh basil leaves
-Slice tomatoes into small chunks and place into bowl.
-Thinly slice garlic cloves and place into bowl.
-Slice artichokes in quarters and place into bowl.
-Add two tablespoons of oil of your choice into the mixture in bowl.
-Add two tablespoons of flower into the mixture in bowl.
-Sprinkle salt and pepper into bowl.
-Place chicken breasts in pan.
-Cover chicken breasts with mixture in bowl.
-Bake chicken in the oven on 350 until chicken is close to being done (I baked for 35 minutes).
-Take out when the chicken is nearly cooked though and add mozzarella cheese along with several basic leaves on top.
-Bake chicken dish until the cheese is bubbly and golden (I baked for 5-7 more minutes).
-Take out…. and be ready to eat the whole pan.
Yum, yum, yum! Thank you Jill for this incredible meal.
