Chicken Stefanatorre

This is my version of chicken cacciatore. It is quick & easy to make, yet very healthy.

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (boiled)
1 small onion - diced or chopped
6 large mushrooms - sliced
6 artichoke hearts, sliced - (canned not marinated)
2 cups of your favorite spaghtetti sauce - ( I used crushed tomatoes from Trader Joe's since they are gluten free)
olive oil

Cube the chicken and put it in a pyrex (or any other kind of dish that can be put in the oven). Saute the onions & mushrooms in olive oil until they are pretty soft. Add them to the chicken dish along with the artichoke hearts and sauce. Give it a quick toss, and if you like add some mozzarella cheese to the top (not shown in the picture since I don't eat dairy). Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 mins or until the sauce starts to bubble. Enjoy!
