Artichoke Crusted Chicken

This was the perfect recipe for just my husband and I, because there were no leftovers. Don't get me wrong we love leftovers at our house. Most of the time our left overs usually go bad before we get to them though. I have always loved artichoke hearts, and couldn't wait to try this recipe. It was so delicious! I stumbled upon this recipe and can't remember directly where it came from. Enjoy! 

2 six-ounce chicken breasts, pounded thin
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/3 cup grated white cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper the chicken and then saute each chicken breast in 1 tbsp olive oil on medium-high heat, for about 8-10 minutes, or until cooked. Set aside. 

Mix together the mayonnaise, artichoke hearts and cheddar cheese until evenly distributed. Spread the mixture over the sauteed chicken breasts, and then broil at 400 degrees for about 3 minutes. Watch carefully, broiling can burn things really fast. When the cheese is melted and bubbling and the tops are golden, remove and serve
