An Easy One Pot Artichoke Chicken Dinner

Artichoke Chicken Recipe

April 7, 2015   6 Comments

This is what my dish looked like before I put it in the oven.

Where is the after picture? Ummm, whoops! Casserole got chowed down so quickly that I couldn’t get my camera out fast enough.

Or maybe I forgot to take a picture I was so ENTRALLED by this chicken dish.

I am always looking for ways to only clean one pot and make a good meal. This is easy because you aren’t really cooking – just dumping yummy ingredients into a casserole.

Artichokes packed in water (not marinated because then you are adding oil) are a great vegetable. One large artichoke contains only 25 calories, 170 milligrams of potassium, and is a good source of vitamin C, folate, magnesium and dietary fiber.

My daughter liked the chicken but wouldn’t eat the artichokes and my son demanded a cheese sandwich instead. Oh well.

I could see this with oregano, sun dried tomatoes, feta cheese, or other flavoring agents to pop it up a bit. But, if you are in a hurry to toss a meal into the oven – this works.

Do you eat artichokes for dinner? How do you serve them?

can you substitute with chicken breasts?

@susmpatt - I didn't try chicken breasts. If I did I would cover it for the first 20 minutes to hold in more moisture. I hope this is helpful!
