Chicken Florentine Artichoke Bake

Are you ready for a gastronomical adventure? It's Foodie Friday again hosted by Designs by Gollum, where cooks all over blogland share their culinary skills.

Today, I'm sharing with you a Chicken Florentine Artichoke Bake. It's a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens that I've personally tested for you. Since everyone is celebrating fall, I though it befitting to offer some comfort food to go with the changing weather.

Chicken Florentine Artichoke Bake
