Recipes for free: Artichoke chicken w/brown rice

Artichoke Chicken  My dad asked me to cook these individually wrapped organic chicken breasts that he purchased. Nothing to healthy were his words. I came up with this tasty Artichoke Chicken using fresh garden ripe tomatoes, marinaded artichokes, and onions. Seasoned brown rice and steamed cauliflower were the sides. He ate every bite of this unhealthy (sarcasm) dinner. You will like it too.
