Chicken Artichoke Casserole

Wife said she felt we dining out with this dish and it was a good date night dish. Note to self must make again. As you can tell we really liked this one and sometimes chicken can be so bland but this was a cut above and really easy. As they say your friends will think you slaved all day in the kitchen.
4 chicken breast halves
4 Tablespoons butter
8 oz sliced mushrooms
1/2 onion cut
2 cloves garlic
1 jar (14 oz) marinated artichokes,drained
2 Tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
salt and pepper to season the chicken
In a skillet brown seasoned chicken, lightly in butter.
Transfer to a baking dish. Add mushrooms,onion and garlic to skillet and saute for a few minutes, until lightly browner, remove and spoon over chicken pieces.
Add flour to the remaining butter and stir to blend, add broth and cook till thickened. Pour over chicken and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
We served over rice.

Sounds and looks delicious!! I have never eaten artichokes but have read that the young inner flower stalks of the burdock taste like artichokes, to which it is closely related. I plan to try those this year in an attempt to supply us with a delicious fresh vegetable, but also in an attemp to rid the property of so many burdocks. I should, at some point, try real artichokes too!
