Artichoke Crusted Chicken

Here is another one of my favorite recipes. It's not the healthiest but it is SOOOO good!! I have made this before and we are having it again tonight for dinner (that right there should let you know how much we like it!) So, just because I love you I will give you the recipe :)

Artichoke Crusted Chicken

2 six-ounce chicken breasts, pounded thin
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup artichoke hearts, drained and chopped (I used canned artichoke hearts, but frozen ones that have been thawed would be fine)
1/3 cup grated white cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper the chicken and then sauté each chicken breast in 1 tbsp olive oil on medium-high heat, for about 8-10 minutes, flipping once, or until the juices run clear when pierced with a fork.  Set aside.
Mix together the mayonnaise, artichoke hearts and cheddar cheese until evenly distributed.  Spread the mixture over the sauteed chicken breasts, and then broil at 400 degrees for about 3 minutes.  Do not take your eyes off them — broiling can lead to burning faster than you can imagine.  When the cheese is melted and bubbling and the tops are golden, remove and serve.
Serves 2.

P.S. This recipe is for 2 chicken breasts and I always cook 3 for our family - this was actually enough to spread over 3 breasts. Enjoy!!
