    Skillet Chicken With Mushrooms and Artichokes

    8 servings/ serving size: 3 ounces chicken plus 2/3 cup sauce

    This quick, scrumptious chicken with a light mushroom and artichoke sauce goes great with wild rice.

    2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

    Salt and pepper to taste (optional)

    ½ pound mushrooms, sliced

    ½ cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth

    2 tablespoons lemon juice

    1 (14 ounce) can evaporated milk

    ½ cup chopped green onions

    ½ cup plain, fat-free yogurt

    Season the chicken with salt and pepper (if using). In a large nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook the chicken 5-7 minutes or until browned on both sides.

    Add the mushroom, chicken broth, and lemon juice and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook, covered, for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is done.

    Add the artichokes and the milk. Stir and cook for 5 minutes or until thickened, but do not boil. Stir in the green onions and yogurt.

    Note: To freeze this dish, leave out the yogurt and stir in after reheating.
