Linguine with Chicken Artichokes and CapersThis is very simple pasta dish combining the health benefits of artichokes, the piquant flavor of capers and the lean protein of organic chicken breasts!! My husband Geoffrey’s favorite pasta dish and a family favorite; my Grandson calls it “Flat Chicken”! Artichokes are a fabulous antioxidant tonic, chicken is lean and high protein and pasta provides the essential carbohydrates that we all need for optimum health!

1 package of organic boneless, skinned chicken breasts

Himalayan salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup organic all purpose flour

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1&1/2 cup chicken broth

2 Tablespoons of capers ( do not rinse)

Dash of crushed red peppers flakes

1 bunch organic flat leaf parsley, chopped

1 package organic Linguine, Cappellini or thin Spaghetti
