Have I already mentioned that this baked mustard artichoke chicken is very easy to make? Just put chicken on a bed of chopped mushrooms, onions and artichokes in a baking pan. And then, pour a mixture of mustard, white wine, white vinegar and herbs over the chicken and bake it for an hour. This fabulous recipe is an adaptation by Stacey of Stacey Snacks.
