Baked Parmesan and Artichoke Heart Chicken

This is a great meal for dinner parties because it can be prepped in advance and then placed in the oven when ready. If feeding a crowd, use a bigger baking dish and double the recipe. If you are doubling the recipe in one dish you may not need to double the amount of oil. Try adding just enough oil to cover the chicken.
