Spinach and Artichoke Chicken

I am always thinking of new recipes to try out.  I was initially thinking of chicken piccata, so that dish was my inspiration.  I decided to use artichoke and spinach with a white wine flavor.  So I cooked the chicken just like one would when making chicken piccata.  Instead of adding lemon and capers, I added spinach and artichoke hearts!  I absolutely love artichoke.  I usually make this dish for dinner on a Sunday evening or make it in preparation for a busy week.  One week, I packed a portion for myself every day for lunch.  I love this recipe because it is healthy and full of flavor at the same time!  Spinach and artichoke both go so well together.  You will not forget this dish!
