My blogging buddy Cara from Sweet Hersey Living {remember her pierogi tutorial?} told me last week that the new buzz among food bloggers is SKINNY. I had no idea. I really must get with the times. Anyhow, a lot of my recipes probably don’t qualify for skinny, but this one actually does! I was thrilled to figure that out {and so was my slighting expanding waistline…} 🙁

Skinny Chicken with Artichokes & Lemon

Last night I tried a new chicken recipe – Skinny Chicken with Artichokes & Lemon. I ripped this recipe out of an All.You magazine several years ago, but just now finally got around to trying it! My husband and I liked it a lot, though, only 1 out of 4 children did…they said it tasted too much like wine, but I really disagree. Sometimes it’s really bad when they watch me cook. 😉

This chicken is pretty easy and very tasty – a one dish meal you can have on your table in 30 minutes!
