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.
