Chicken & Artichokes / Cookie Dough Brownies

Chicken & Artichokes over Rice
(thanks to Paige Storheim, a friend from Rochester, NY)

3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and diced
1 can cream of celery
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. whipping cream OR evaporated milk
**I usually don't have whipping cream or evaporated milk on hand, so I just do a total of 1/2 c. milk
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
2 Tblspn. sherry (I never have this, so I just use the brine/marinade from the artichokes)
1 c. parmesan cheese, grated
2 cans artichoke hearts, drained and cut into bite size pieces
**I LOVE the huge jar of artichoke hearts sold at Costco. They are in a great tasting marinade and come in handy for all of the artichoke recipes I make. MUCH cheaper than individual cans and MUCH better flavor

Mix all ingredients together.
Pour into a 9 X 13 pan and sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly (about 1/2 hour).
Serve over rice.

1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. softened butter
2 Tblspn. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tblspn. vegetable oil

Bake brownies according to package direction.
**my favorite are the Ghiradelli Triple Chocolate Brownies from Costco
Cream sugars and butter.
Add milk and vanilla.
Mix in flour.
Spread over brownies (almost like a thick frosting)
Melt chocolate chips and vegetable oil in microwave.
Spread on cookie dough.
Chill until ready to serve & then keep chilled.

For anyone who loves brownies like I do, this recipe is a MUST TRY! Super YUMMY!
