make rice.

mushrooms and cook until tender. Stir in rice. Add 1 1/2 cups of the
reduced chicken broth. Simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed (about 20
minutes.) While rice is cooking, make the cream sauce.

The Cream Sauce: Melt margarine over low heat. Stir in the flour and cook
until bubbly. Remove from heat and slowly stir in remaining 2 cups of
broth. Gradually add skim milk. Return to low heat and stir until thick.

artichoke hearts and 1 cup of the cream sauce. Set aside. Stir remaining
cream sauce into chicken pieces. Set aside.
