Chicken with Artichokes Recipe
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
- 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and coarsely chopped
- 1. Combine salt and pepper; sprinkle over chicken. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chicken in 2 teaspoons oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove and keep warm.
- 2. In the same skillet, cook onion and garlic in remaining oil for 3-4 minutes or until onions are tender. Stir in wine and chicken broth, stirring to loosen any browned bits from pan. Bring to a boil. Add chicken. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Remove chicken; keep warm.
- 3. Add artichokes to pan. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-12 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Serve with chicken. Yield: 4 servings.
