A tasty chicken recipe with rice, mushrooms, and chicken breasts, along with quartered artichokes and cheese.

Rice tends to get mushy so I cook it before I add it to the cooked chicken and artichoke mixture. Or, serve the chicken mixture over the hot cooked rice. Cook the rice in low sodium or unsalted chicken broth for extra chicken flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts halves
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper or pimiento
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 can cream of celery soup, low fat
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 can artichokes, quartered and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
  • unsalted chicken stock or low-sodium chicken broth for cooking the rice

How to Make It

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil.

Combine the flour, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and paprika. Dredge chicken in the flour mixture and then brown it on all sides in the hot oil.

Transfer chicken to the slow cooker. In the hot skillet, saute bell pepper, green onions, and mushrooms for about 2 minutes; add the 1/2 cup of chicken broth and soup, Stir to blend thoroughly and then pour over chicken. Stir in the artichoke quarters.

Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.

Cook the rice in chicken broth following the package directions and serve with the chicken and artichokes.
