Chicken with Artichoke Hearts


Chicken & Artichokes

RANDOM UNITS WITH NO MEANING: 5
MAKES: 4 servings
CRISPY RATING: Turns out very liquidy / stewy, but has a really good flavor and mix of textures.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts or Thighs
  • 3 Tbsp Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 16 oz canned Artichoke Hearts, without oil
  • 30 oz canned diced Tomatoes (or a couple fresh ones)
  • 1/2 pound Mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 3 tsp sugar

1. Season and flour the chicken.
  • If using THIGHS - place olive oil in large pan, add the chicken and bake 350 for about 30 min.
  • If using BREASTS - cut into bite sized pieces, coat with flour, and quickly pan fry with olive oil.
  • Place chicken into 8x8 baking dish.

    2. Drain artichokes, saving juice. (If using artichokes in oil, drain into a fat strainer. Use the juice in the sauce and throw away the extra fat.) Add artichokes, juice, and remaining ingredients to skillet and cook 10-15 minutes.

    3. Pour sauce over chicken, cover with foil and bake until bubbly - about one hour for thighs, and 15 to 20 minutes for breasts.


    MY NOTES AND THOUGHTS:

    1. Feel free to add more seasonings - oregano and basil would be great.
