Chicken with Artichokes

I made this one up! Back in February, my boyfriend came home from work earlier than expected. So I hurriedly whipped up this chicken dish. Tasted amazing to both of us though I tend to like any dish that involves lots of artichokes. I tried making it again a few weeks later but I must've forgotten how to make it because it didn't taste the same. Still tasty, just not awesome. The chicken wasn't cooked perfectly like the first time. Maybe I needed to pound flatter the second time. I had scribbled down some notes if you want to try making it.

Chicken with Artichokes

  1. Start with split chicken breasts with bone. Pound them flatter.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper under the skin, on top of the skin, and on the back side of the chicken.
  3. Sautee some minced garlic then push garlic to the sides of the pan.
  4. Put the chicken in, skin side down for about 3 minutes. Then flip and let the other side cook about 4-5 minutes. Still not all the way done.
  5. Remove chicken and deglazed the pan with some chicken stock.
  6. Mix in the coarsely chopped artichokes.
  7. Add back the chicken (keeping skin above the liquid) and let simmer another 5 minutes until it is just finished cooking.
  8. Splash it with two squirts of lemon juice.
  9. Serve with some rice or roasted asparagus.

I have nothing to say about that delicious looking chicken. I just wanted to reiterate (because I am sure I must have said it before) the smile in your icon is just so fabulous I can't help but grin when I look at it.

That looks SO good.
I know that would be very popular in our house as we love artichokes with anything.

You'll have to try it out some time and let me know :)

This sounds really good, but Alec hates artichokes so I'm not seeing myself make it. :/

aww. I have one dish that I love and it's simple to make but Brian doesn't like it because he doesn't like pasta dishes that don't have a sauce. So if I make it, I'll pick a night when he's out or else warn him to pick up something else for himself to eat. Sometimes he'll go ahead and have some of the linguine :)
