The Tastiest Chicken Breast Recipe Ever

Personally, I find most baked chicken without a lot of flavor.
But not last Sunday night. For her weekly Sunday night dinner, my daughter made chicken with pasta and artichoke hearts. The long marination and touch of lemon made it as good as it gets.

Chicken and Artichoke Pasta Recipe.
Marinate Chicken for 3-24 hours.
6 chicken breasts
2 cloves garlic minced
juice of 2 lemons
1 tbsp coarse salt
1tbsp coarse pepper

12 oz marinated artichokes

Render fat from bacon until bacon is crispy. Drain
bacon and put fat to the side. De glaze pan with
lemon juice and wine. Add butter and garlic. Simmer
