Chicken Salad-Stuffed Artichokes
Ingredients
2 cups chicken breast cooked, diced cold
1/2 cup celery chopped
1/4 cup red onion minced
1/4 cup cashews chopped
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1/3 cup light sour cream
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 large artichokes
Steaming Liquid (recipe follows)
Directions
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Chill time: About 30 minutes

In a medium bowl, stir together until blended all ingredients except artichokes and Steaming Liquid. Cover and chill until ready to serve. To cook artichokes, place Steaming Liquid ingredients in a large, microwave-safe bowl. Cut the stems and pointed tops off the artichokes, then snip off the sharp leaf tips with kitchen scissors and discard. Place stem side up in bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the microwave and cook on HIGH for 10 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, then drain liquid and let cool. To serve, scoop out the fuzzy center of the artichoke and discard. Spoon the chicken salad into the center. (Or cut each in half and spoon the salad into the center.) To eat, pull away leaves and use to scoop up a bit of the salad.

Steaming Liquid: 1/2 cup water, 2 lemon slices, 2 cloves garlic, 2 bay leaves, 5 peppercorns

Makes 2 large or 4 small servings.
