Chicken and Artichokes

Here's a great easy recipe if you like chicken thighs and artichokes. I buy packages of frozen artichokes at Trader Joe's and Meijer and always have them at the ready in the freezer. They are so easy to throw into a dish and somehow make it seem more special than other vegetables. I served this over brown rice and it was quite good.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  •  2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup red-wine vinegar
  • 1 red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 package  frozen artichoke hearts,
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled or mozzarella (I had mozzarella)


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper; add to skillet, and brown on all sides, about 10 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium; add garlic, oregano, crushed red pepper, vinegar to skillet. Add red pepper and artichokes and about a cup of water. Put lid on skillet and simmer 20 minutes. When ready to serve, sprinkle cheese over each serving.
