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...

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!!

Oh yea I forgot to say I added onions too as you can see in my pic. and I think it's a must! Shallots would be great too!

Easy Peas-y

I thought this was good, fast, easy. The artichoke hearts were way too briny, and I would omit (or boil fresh ones myself) next time.

This recipe got my family to eat their greens- yay!

Like another reviewer said, the artichokes were very overpowering. Although the chicken turned out tasty, the peas were not. Also, the entire time was about 15 minutes longer than the recipe indicated. If I decided to make this again, I will substitute the artichokes for something else (not sure what though).

Was very easy to make.
Great weeknight dinner

We loved this. I used chives, dill and thyme and served it with rosted potatoes and peppers. I did skip the vinegar. I don't think it needs it with the artichoke hearts. Would make again! Next time I will probably add a shallot.

easy, fresh, tasty
