Private cooking lesson

Mike's wife gave him a private cooking lesson as a birthday present...."Hey Ellie I just wanted to say thank you for everything, we really enjoyed having you in our house to cook with us. We enjoyed a delicious meal later that evening prepared by us, with your instruction, and it was worth the wait!
Just want to say thanks again for everything."

Girls' Night Out

"Thanks so much for the "Easy Spring Suppers" lesson for my Ladies Night gathering. The recipes were very easy and were a big hit! My family especially enjoyed the meatloaf and soup we made. My son Paul would like you to come back and teach a lesson to him and his friends!
Thanks again,"

Chicken with Artichokes

© "So Easy, So Delicious"

1 lb boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1½ pieces
2 to 3 T flour
Black pepper, to taste
1 to 2 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp oregano
13¾ oz can artichoke hearts, drained and cut in half
3 T lemon juice
¾ C white wine or chicken broth
3 T parsley, chopped

Combine flour and black pepper on a piece of wax paper or in a shallow bowl. Dredge chicken pieces in this mixture. Heat the oil and garlic in a fry pan and cook until the pan is hot. Add the chicken and oregano and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the artichoke halves, lemon juice and wine or broth. Cover the pan and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the chicken is tender. Sprinkle with parsley.

Hint: This tastes great over linguine or spaghetti.
