Mediterannean Artichokes and Chicken recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 35 minutes

This scrummy chicken dish is made with marinated artichokes, capers, white wine and mushrooms. Serve with polenta cakes or crispy roast potatoes and some wilted greens.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 2 x 300g jars marinated artichoke hearts (you only need to use 1 1/2 jars)
  • 1 tbsp. each oil and butter
  • 250ml white wine
  • 1 tbsp. capers, drained
  • 100g mushrooms
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Quarter the artichoke hearts, reserving the marinade.

  2. Heat butter and oil in a frying pan. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Fry on either side for 3-4 minutes until golden on each side, then remove from the pan.

  3. Add the artichoke hearts and mushrooms to the frying pan. Fry for 5-7 minutes until tender and golden.

  4. Add the chicken, wine and reserved artichoke liquid. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the chicken is tender.

  5. Add the capers and simmer for another 5 minutes, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

A nice addition to this dish would be some wilted spinach, as well some fried onions. You could also do this with pork chops or beef steaks. Recipe serves 4.
