Braised Greek Chicken and Artichokes

Total Time
Prep 35 mins
Cook 25 mins

This came from an old cooking magazine, no longer noted on my copy.It is easy and uncomplicated. I followed the recommendations to accompany with orzo and baby carrots (I used Zaar Balsamic Baby Carrots - Balsamic Baby Carrots), and maybe prepared stuffed, grape leaves. It will prepare leftovers for another meal for 2.

Yum! I used a whole juiced / zested lemon (so a little more than listed) and the citrus / pepper tang went wonderfully with the chicken and artichokes. I used really large skin-on chicken breasts so gave them 15 minutes of steaming at step 5 which was spot on and left them really moist but well cooked.

A very nice, quick dinner that has tons of flavor. The chicken was flattened slightly to promote more even cooking. The sauce when reduced produces a very nice sauce. Made for *Aussie Swap*
