Ingredients

  • 1 (6-ounce) jar marinated artichoke heart quarters, undrained
  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups hot cooked cavatappi (about 2 1/2 cups uncooked spiral tube-shaped pasta) or fusilli (short twisted spaghetti)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) canned diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Preparation

  1. Drain artichokes in a colander over a bowl, reserving marinade.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper; coat with cooking spray. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; sauté 3 minutes on each side. Add onions and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Stir in reserved artichoke marinade and wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and stir in artichokes, pasta, olives, and tomatoes. Cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with cheese.
