   Toast pine nuts.(You can do this in the microwave, if desired. Spread them
   in one layer on a m/w-safe paper towel on High until lightly browned about
   2 to 4 minutes). Cut off artichoke stems so that they are flat on the
   bottom and will stand up in the baking dish. Snip points off outer leaves.

   1/4 c of the ckn. broth into bottom of dish. Cover tightly with plastic
   wrap and cook on High until bottoms are tender when pierced with tip of
   knife (about 11 minutes). Let stand covered, 3 minutes; drain. When cool
   enough to handle, pull out center leaves and remove center choke. Cook oil,
   onion and garlic, uncovered, on High in m/wave for 3 minutes. Add remaining
   ingredients and another 1/4 c. chicken broth to the onion mixture. Stir
   until well blended. Spoon mixture into center of artichokes (and in between
   leaves, if desired). Pour the remaining 1/4 c chicken broth into the bottom
   of the dish. Place artichokes in broth. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on
   high until heated through, about 4 minutes. Judy Garnett/pjxg05a Raleigh,
