I rarely make dinner recipes that my kids ask to eat for leftovers the next day. They enjoy most of my recipes and typically eat seconds, but unless it is a casserole covered in tater tots, they typically don’t want to eat it again and again.

DIG DEEPER


Great family meals don’t have to be complicated. This mini cookbook serves up 10 easy meals, each only requiring 5 ingredients or less

However, this One Pan Chicken & Artichokes had them raiding the fridge at lunch and dinner time. They just keep mentioning how tasty and flavorful the chicken is. That has to be due to the fact that the chicken is marinated in the canned artichoke brine. I don’t know how the chicken picked up that much flavor so quickly, but it did and I couldn’t be happier!

Ingredients needed for one-pan chicken and artichokes recipe

Here is what you need:

6 chicken breasts, trimmed and skinned
2 (12 oz) jars marinated artichoke hearts
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt
Pepper
 

Marinate the chicken breasts with the artichoke hearts for 1-2 hours

Step 1: In a large bowl, place chicken breasts and the liquid and artichokes of each jar of marinated artichoke hearts. Stir together. Cover, refrigerate and let it marinate for at 1-2 hours.

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray (or you can line with foil for easy clean up)

Step 2: Spray a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

Place marinated chicken on the baking sheet spread out evenly

Step 3: With a slotted spoon, remove chicken and artichokes (removing as much liquid as possible). Place on the greased baking sheet.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper

Step 4: Sprinkle each side of the chicken breasts generously with salt and pepper.

Broiling the chicken gives it a deliciously crispy crust sprinkled with parmesan cheese

Step 5: Broil on high on the middle rack of the oven for 20 minutes. Next, flip chicken breasts over, stir artichokes, and move baking sheet to the top oven rack and broil for 2 minutes. Lastly, flip chicken back over and sprinkle pan with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Broil on top rack another 2 mins or until cheese and chicken are nicely browned and chicken is cooked through.
