All You Chicken with Artichokes and Lemon

I love making chicken dishes, but I'm not a fan of plain grilled chicken breasts or bland baked chicken. In my ongoing quest to find a decent dish,  I've tried countless chicken recipes that have turned out dry or simply flavorless. My husband and two boys love chicken thighs, so when the May issue of All You magazine had a recipe for chicken with artichokes and lemon, I jumped at the chance to find a decent chicken recipe.

The prep involved for this recipe is next to nothing. The artichokes are canned and the lemon only has to be sliced, the recipes suggestion of 5 minutes might even be on the high end. All the ingredients are easily found at any supermarket, my store even had multiple brands of artichokes available. The cooking required is not active; the dish cooks itself for most of the 20 minutes. I didn't have to make any modifications, the recipe works well as written.

This is a great weeknight recipe. My whole family enjoyed the dish and my children ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. I like that the dish is quick to prepare and that I can do other things while it finishes cooking on the stove. My husband pointed out that the sauce would be great on fish and I agree that it would make a great addition to a boring recipe. All in all this would be a chicken dish that I would feel confident about serving to friends and family in the future.

For the recipe go to All You Chicken with Artichokes and Lemon.
