Chicken in Artichoke Pan Sauce – sauteed chicken breasts in a creamy artichoke pan sauce. Ready in minutes and perfect for weeknights!
Being a parent is hard! This has been quite the week, and it is only Wednesday. This whole pre-teen stage is tough, I am not sure what I am going to do once we reach the teen years. They are so grown up, smart, mature, think they know everything. But they are still a kid. My son is almost 11, but man, I think he thinks he is 20 and should be treated as such.
Sometimes, he totally warrants it. Other times? Not so much. This week has been a test, that is for sure, and I am pretty sure I am not doing all the things I should be. So I might go make a pan of brownies and eat my emotions.
I think chicken is probably the most used protein in the US. So I am here today to mix it up, and give you a delicious twist on your chicken dinner. I have made chicken with a pan sauce before, and it is super simple and always a hit.
But this time we are mixing it up with artichokes! My husband and I love artichoke hearts, my 10 year old is hit or miss. He ate around them in this chicken in artichoke pan sauce, and still loved it. So much better than just plain chicken for dinner!
This chicken in artichoke pan sauce looks way fussier than it actually is. This chicken marinates for 30 minutes, and is ready in minutes after that. And is actually really easy. There are a few steps involved, but super simple! I used a jar of artichoke hearts that I drained, but you could use frozen if that is what you have.
The recipe made a lot of sauce, so serve over rice or pasta so you can savor all of that deliciousness. Or serve with crusty bread that you can dip in it. Whatever you do, just add chicken with artichoke pan sauce to your menu soon!
