This recipe is a quick, go-to meal for me, since it is so ridiculously easy to prepare. It is high in protein, low in carbs, primal and paleo friendly. Contains no grains or flour, and baked in the oven. The sauce is a lemony, garlic broth with artichokes and capers. Can also be topped with optional Parmesan cheese.
