Chicken Stewed with Artichokes and Tomatoes

This is a relatively simple recipe, with a minimal amount of preparation, where all of the ingredients are cooked in the same pot.  The result is a delicious concoction of Chicken, Artichokes and Tomatoes with a very special garnish that brings everything together perfectly.
