    8       oz           Mostaccioli or Radiatore
                         -OR other medium pasta
                         -shape, uncooked
    8       oz           Canned artichoke hearts
                         - drained
    1       tb           Olive or vegetable oil
    4       oz           Boneless chicken breasts
                         -(without skin)
                         - cut into 1-inch cubes
      1/2   c            Evaporated skimmed milk
    2       tb           Chopped fresh parsley
      1/2   ts           Dijon mustard with seeds
                         Salt
                         Freshly ground pepper
    2       tb           Grated Parmesan cheese
                         -- (optional)
 
   Prepare pasta according to package directions. While
   pasta is cooking, squeeze as much water from the
   artichoke hearts as possible and cut each piece in
   half lengthwise.
   
   Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add
   the chicken and artichoke hearts. Saute, stirring
   frequently, until chicken is golden brown, about 6
   minutes. Add the evaporated skimmed milk, parsley and
   mustard to the pan and stir to remove the brown bits
   from the bottom and sides of the pan. Heat to boiling
   and boil until the liquid is reduced in volume by half.
   
   Drain the pasta and transfer it to the skillet. (If
   the skillet is not deep or large enough to hold both
   the pasta and the sauce, return the pasta to the
   cooking pot and add the contents of the skillet to the
   pot.) Heat over low heat, stirring, until the pasta is
   mixed well with the sauce. Add salt and pepper to
   taste; toss in Parmesan cheese if desired. Divide
   between two serving bowls and serve immediately.
