Artichoke & Mushroom Chicken Bake {sooooo good!}

I'm going to take a little break from my current obsessing blogging about all things Target and share a fabulous recipe. A few months ago there was some tweeting about this recipe, or versions of it, which is from the Adventures of Maverick and the Mrs. blog - original recipe here.

I've made this a few times and it has always turned out great. My husband has told me it just may be his favorite. It's definitely in my top 5. This time I made it with the spinach noodles, but it's great with any kind of noodles or rice. I'll even confess that I re-heated some leftovers the next morning and ate it with crackers for breakfast. It's that good.

Oh, and I apologize but about half way through cooking I forgot to keep taking pictures, so I don't have one of the end result.

So. You need some chicken (I used 1.5 - 2 lbs of chicken already cut up (not seasoned in any way) from the grocery store - packaged like they do for fajitas or stir fry) and these ingredients:

2 bay leaves
1 cup cooking sherry
3 Tbsp butter
8 oz pkg sliced mushrooms
a bunch of green onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
14 oz can artichokes
3/4 c mayonnaise
1/2 c sour cream
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan

Boil the chicken pieces in water with a half a cup of cooking sherry (this adds such a nice flavor!), two bay leaves and a little salt and pepper added in until they are cooked through - usually 30 min or so depending on how small the pieces are and how much you use.

Drain the cooked chicken and cut into bite-size pieces and combine in a bowl with artichokes also cut into bite-size pieces.

Melt the butter in a pan and saute the mushrooms, onions and garlic.

Add the vegetables to the bowl and combine well.

Sorry, this is where the pics end, but all you have to do now is add in the sour cream, mayonnaise, remaining 1/2 c of sherry, and 1/2 c of parmesan, stir it up and transfer it to a lightly buttered 9x13 (3 quart) baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan over the top and bake at 350 for about half an hour or until bubbly and you're done! Serves 6-8.
