CHICKEN THIGHS: I picked chicken thighs for this dish because they are loaded with flavor and will be more tender than the leaner chicken breasts. Don’t use boneless, skinless chicken in this recipe because the crispy skin is one of the best parts.

MARINATED ARTICHOKE HEARTS: You can find these in the canned veggie section of just about any grocery store. I have used Reese’s, DeLallo and Napoleon brands and they have all been great!  This artichoke chicken is packed with flavor because the marinated artichokes are packed with flavor so just pick your favorite. 

Step by Step Instructions: 

Not only does this recipe require very few ingredients, it also has very few steps. 

STEP 1: Combine chicken, artichoke hearts and marinade together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for  1 – 2 hours. You can do longer than that if you needed.

There’s something about the combination of honey, lemon, and garlic together that just makes my heart happy. If all those things are coming together in a one pan – slash- sheet pan meal that can be prepped and baked in about thirty minutes, well that’s my little heaven right there.

I must’ve been about 8 or 10 years old the first time I remember trying an artichoke. It was at my grandparents home in Southern California, dinner on the back patio beneath their pale blue wooden awning with little bowls of mayonnaise and melted butter for dipping. The melted butter comes from my Mom’s side, the mayonnaise from my Dad’s. I love them both.

The Health Science major side of me says no way to dipping flower petals in butter and mayo but the food-lover side of me says YESSSSSS. The food-lover side generally wins, even if it’s just by a hair.
