This was good - not great though. It was a little bland - could've maybe used some sun-dried tomatoes or mushrooms or something else to add another layer of flavor. As it was, it wasn't that filling. Also, the prep time is definitely longer than 5 minutes, as you have to slice garlic, peppers, artichokes, and chicken. Still, it's worth a try.
