Baked Chicken with Artichokes

I know some people may not agree but artichokes are up there as one of my favorite things to eat. I simply love them. Artichoke hearts especially. Generally when cooking I use the fresh or frozen versions. However, there is a little bit of me that adores the marinated version. I love them with antipasto platters, I love them straight out of the jar and I love them in this baked chicken dish. With only 4 ingredients, I’m pretty sure you’ll love this dish too.

When you marinate chicken, it’s usually in oil, spices and vinegar. Well if you look at the ingredients of the marinated artichokes you will notice that that is exactly what is in them. Which makes it the perfect marinade for chicken. It leaves the chicken flavorful and tender, not to mention covered in artichokes.

Baked Chicken with Artichokes Recipe

  • 2 pounds chicken thighs
  • 2 (6 ounce) jars marinated artichoke hearts with their liquid

    Hi, I have a (probably silly to some) question. I have a thing about chicken thighs – don’t know why, just don’t like them. Would this dish work as well with boneless chicken breasts?

        Sorry! I am just now seeing this, I apologize! You could totally use chicken breasts instead. If you are using boneless it will cook a lot faster. If you are using bone in, it might take a bit longer. Hope this helps!

    I just “favorited” your breadsticks recipe and can’t wait to try it out tonight to go along with our pizza. I LOVE making pizza on my beloved pizza stone, and I’m constantly looking for a recipe for hand-kneaded bread dough for breadsticks for a pizza stone, but I can never find one! Until I found yours. Yay! I have high hopes for the recipe.
    Then I saw the link for this chicken recipe–artichockes peaked my interest–I love artichoke hearts too! I have yet to learn how to cook with fresh artichokes though. I usually use canned or especially marinated! YUM! We just got a giant jar of marinated artichokes from Costco’s and I can’t wait to crack it open. I love them chopped up on pizza! (along with some olives, mushrooms, spinach, zucchini if I’ve got it, and pepperoni!) I can’t wait to try this chicken recipe too!

    Did you sear the chicken before baking it?

      Ginger- No I did not sear the chicken first. You could do that to crisp up the skin and reduce the cooking time a bit if you would like but it’s not necessary.
