Chicken Florentine Artichoke Bake Recipe

3 Oct

Who doesn’t need a wonderful, delicious chicken casserole recipe right about now?  I know I do!  As the weather here in Madison gets colder (and wetter!) – nothing seems to warm you up like a good old-fashioned casserole.  Am I right or am I right? 

Don’t let a big casserole intimidate you.  Is it only the 2 of you?  Cut this recipe in half and make in little ramekins.  

This recipe is my sister-in-law, Susan’s recipe and it’s adapted from Better Home & Gardens.

cook it

thank god the weekend is almost here.  i’m ready for it.  while i haven’t been traveling too much this month, i find it hard to work from home.  anyone else think that as well?  i seems i need people, action and inspiration.  that’s why it was so much fun to have my sister-in-law hang out for a while this summer.  we had a lot of fun together.  we cooked up a storm, both at home and while taking a cooking class at sur la table.  

this week’s episode of COOK IT is a casserole and it’s perfect to make on sunday.  just saying that word, casserole,  is comforting.  one dish of love wrapped up with all the things i love.  pasta, artichokes, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, paprika.

just kidding, who loves paprika?
