Our family eats a lot of chicken.  I am always trying to come up with fun and different chicken recipes.  This can be hard at times because right around the time I have to make dinner is the time that my brain has stopped working!  Anyway, I came up with a great chicken recipe a few weeks ago that I called Chicken w/ Artichokes & Mushrooms.  I dredged the chicken pieces in flour and then browned them.  I then created a light lemon flavored sauce from chicken broth, white wine and lemon.  This dish was quick and easy to make.  This chicken dish went great with a side of  Orzo w/ Sundried Tomato & Feta.  Toss a small garden salad and voila....dinner is served!


  • 6 pieces of chicken: thighs, drumsticks or chicken breasts (all will work)
  • 1 cup flour
  • kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  •  5 shallots - sliced thin
  • olive oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2  cup white wine
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 8 oz. button mushrooms - sliced
  • 1  12 oz. quartered artichokes in water - drained
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Wash and dry chicken pieces.  In a shallow dish/bowl add the flour with some kosher salt and fresh ground pepper; mix well.  Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour mixture.
  2. In the mean time heat about 2 TB. olive oil in a large skillet.  Add the chicken pieces and cook on medium high until the chicken is browned on both sides, about 7-10 minutes.
  3. Once chicken has browned remove from skillet and place on a dish; set aside.
  4. Add 1 more TB. of olive oil to the skillet.  Add the shallots.  Stir to coat with olive oil and saute for 3 minutes.
  5. Keeping heat on medium high add the 1/2 cup white wine to deglaze the skillet.  Stir well with a wooden spoon scraping the bottom of the skillet.
  6. Add the chicken broth and lemon juice.  Bring to a rapid simmer.
  7. Turn heat down to medium low and add the mushrooms, artichokes and the browned chicken.  Stir well.  Add
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste, stir well.  Cover and cook for about 20 minutes, stirring every so often.  Once chicken has been cooked through - serve.
