This recipe won a contest on a television show called The Chew. Mario Batali and others judged 3 chicken recipes made by regular people, and this won first prize. It is simple and satisfying, and a great weeknight recipe. Such a nice change to boring baked chicken. Baked Artichoke ChickenNutrition Facts

I didn't have all dark meat so I used a whole chicken cut up, including breasts.
I used white wine, because I like it better with chicken than the red. I also increased the garlic. I baked my chicken at 375F because I like crispy skin.
The recipe calls for "brown" mustard, which is Gulden's in my book, however, I have a nice French tarragon mustard, so I used that instead. The results were fabulous!
