Chicken with Artichoke & Mushrooms in a White Wine Sauce

Ha ha... has THIS ever happened to you? I had the chicken fresh, dinner ready in the fridge... easy raw tenders. Came home from work completely devoid of the idea of what to cook I had imagined on Sunday prep in the 1st place?!?  An empty brain!

So I ask my hubby, do you want breaded chicken?
Him: No.
Me: OK, what do you want?
Him: Don't know. Don't you have something you want to make?
Me: No, that is why I'm asking you!
Him: Well I don't know- you are not giving me any ideas!
Me: :::exasperated::: & just tired::: OK, I'll figure something out...

Twenty minutes later... VoilĂ !  I had "chicken with artichoke & mushrooms in a white wine sauce". Easy peasy but sure impressed the hubby. But he still said... Him: The colors are all the same. Urgh.
