chicken with artichokes, lemon, & angel hair

this is my kind of dinner.

sauteed, flattened chicken tenders. sandwich the tenders between two pieces of wax paper, and if you don't have a mallet, smack with the bottom of a sauce pan until they're the desired thickness. or should i say thinness?

and an easy weeknight meal.
