Tuscan Chicken Artichoke Skillet

You know the aroma that envelopes you as you open the doors to an Italian restaurant…yeah, that. My house smelled like THAT!! This dish was so easy and so full of flavor and light on the clean up! Bonus! This Tuscan Chicken Artichoke Skillet is a recipe my good friend Brittny Knapp of Britt K Fitness sent to me and I modified to suit my family.  The original one had beans so I replaced that with artichokes (that is a precious yellow container we are talking about there!!) I don’t know what it is about artichokes, but I LOVE THEM! They are FULL of lots of good-for-you things! They help with digestion, are full of phytonutrients and antioxidants and can even help reduce your cholesterol, among other benefits! Check out the list here!

This dish is one that I enjoyed while doing the Countdown to Competition plan for the 21 Day Fix Extreme – I just didn’t at the cheese to it.  You can enjoy this meal whether you are doing the 21 Day Fix or the 21 Day Fix Extreme!   Gotta love that!  🙂

I love skillet meals - they are quick, easy, delicious and make for an easy clean up! This skillet meal packs a punch of Italian flavors and I really enjoyed it - so did my family! The Italian spice blend, the assortment of veggies and juicy chicken made for a yummy meal! I paired mine with some roasted asparagus.

21 Day Fix Counts
  1. 1 Red, 1 Green, 1 spoon, Blue (fill your container with the amount of cheese you would like to top your chicken with, count it against your blue for the day - you likely will not need a full blue!
  2. Measuring - Take 1/4 of the chicken and measure out a cup of the veggies to top the chicken once you have plated it. Top with some Parmesan cheese and parsley.
