Artichoke and Sun-dried Tomato Chicken

Total time 30 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
This recipe is quick and easy and packed with flavor. You'll love the combination of colors from the artichoke and sun-dried tomato mixed in with the chicken.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 boned skinned chicken breast halves (8 oz. each)
  • 2 large shallots, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken stock
  • 8 ounces marinated artichoke hearts, halved
  • 1/4 cup sliced oil-marinated sun-dried tomatoes
  • About 1/2 tsp. salt
  • About 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup sliced basil
  • 1/4 cup freshly and finely shredded parmesan

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy ovenproof frying pan (not nonstick) over high heat until oil is hot but not smoking. Add chicken breasts, top side down, and cook until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn chicken over.

  2. Add shallots and garlic to pan with chicken, stirring occasionally so garlic doesn't burn, until shallots are soft and translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add chicken stock, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper and cook until mixture begins to boil, about 1 minute.

  3. Cover pan and put in oven. Bake 14 to 16 minutes, or until chicken is just cooked through (cut to check). Transfer chicken to a plate.

  4. Season artichoke heart-sun-dried tomato-stock mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Divide vegetables among 4 rimmed plates or shallow pasta bowls, top each with a piece of chicken, and spoon sauce over all. Garnish with sliced basil and parmesan.
