Well, this was definitely fast and easy, especially since I used rotisserie chicken.

Plus, all I had to buy for it was a bag of fresh spinach (the "adult" kind, not the baby kind that has less flavor, IMO).

I see lots of recipes using the same ingredients, only with cream and/or cream cheese, and other fattening stuff added. I'm thinking this recipe needs some of that.

It was just okay. Scroll down for recipe.

I would use these ingredients again, but play around with herbs and seasonings.

Any suggestions???

Hmmm, I'm looking at the photo, thinking maybe sliced pimento-stuffed olives instead of capers.

Or, keep the capers and just slice up some jarred pimentos?

I'd add something for a little heat, like jalapenos.
Also garlic and perhaps tarragon.

Will you share the recipe?

I agree with red pepper flakes for some heat.

And fresh garlic.

Sorry, I meant to attach the recipe I used.

Here it is. Oh, and I agree on the heat - red pepper flakes sounds great! I'll add some to the leftovers.

Along with a bit of heat, you needs an umami bomb. I would add a tablespoon of tomato paste to the middle of the pan, and stir it a minute to darken it, before you add the liquids. Some other ideas would be anchovy, mushrooms, cheese, etc. You could also add a little grated Parmesan over the top. A small bit of hard cheese is still 'skinny', but adds a punch, and would go well with those artichokes.



You've got salt in the capers, acid in the lemon, round it out with a bit of heat and umami.
