Quick-cooking chicken cutlets are paired with an elegant but easy light sauce of sugar snap peas and artichoke hearts. This dish can be made without the sprouted beans, but is especially delicious with them—if you have extras, try them on a salad.

"We liked this very much. Used snow peas and chopped chives with the artichoke hearts, skipped the vinegar at the end. Did need to cook both chicken and sauce longer than indicated. Served with rice pilaf to sop up the sauce. (Made all...

Really disappointed in this dish. Photo on web looked so inviting. Used tarragon and chives as the herbs. The tarragon gave the dish a licorice taste that did not suit the artichokes. One of the worst recipes I have tried.


This was so good and very easy. I used regular mustard instead of dijon, skipped the vinegar, doubled the chicken broth to have more sauce, and added a bit more flour to thicken. My husband and I loved it! Will definitely make this again!


We loved this! Easy to make (maybe takes a little more than 2 minutes per side on the chicken), and a really hearty, healthy meal. I did not find the artichokes over powering, as others had mentioned. Just be sure to rinse them, as the recipe says. I added some scallion and used green onions as my fresh herb at the end - so good!

Easy, tasty, healthy
Absolutely delicious!

Quick, easy weeknight meal. Made this tonight and steamed some carrots and green beans along side. I used mushrooms in the sauce instead of artichokes and served with mashed potatoes. Very good!


I almost didn't make this since some of the reviews were below average. I thought it was perfect!!! I could not find the sprouted beans and I LOVED the artichokes in this! I'm a huge artichoke lover though. I used white wine vinegar and I have to admit I completely forgot to add the fresh herbs at the end. I had tarragon and chives sitting on my cutting board, sadly, not used :-( Tasted great anyway though and can't wait to make again with the herbs!!
