Chicken with Mushrooms & Artichokes (Diabetic)

This is from one of my favorite diabetic cookbooks Trim & Terrific Diabetic Cooking by Holly Clegg. It's made with items I usually have in my pantry so no special trips to the store!
The key to a great sauce is do not allow the evap milk to boil or it will separate out and become watery with clumps of cream.
It's great served with wild rice.
(I forgot to take a picture before everyone starting eating it! The picture I used is the step right before the cream and artichokes are added.)
