My fiancée and I have been trying to eat healthier and this was a good change of pace dish, although we made some alterations due to the ingredients we had available. The first major change is that I didn't cook the chicken as directed. I have a DIY immersion circulator and had a previously cooked/chilled bag of chicken breasts (2 hours @ 141 F) seasoned with creole seasoning, so I used that. I heated up the pan with grapeseed oil, added the chicken (preheated for 20 min @ 130 F), put foil over the top, then put a heavy weight on top to "power sear" the breasts for 45 seconds on each side. I followed the rest of the recipe as directed, except I added shallots, used butter beans (large white lima beans) instead of cannellini, and added a 14.5 oz can of artichoke hearts that I drained, rinsed and quartered. Let me tell you: The artichoke hearts were such a fantastic addition that I couldn't imagine doing this dish another way. I also thought the butter beans went perfect as well. Overall, I would cook this dish again in a heart beat.
