A Little Taste of Italy

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.
