"Our two children, ages 5 and 8, love chicken. Both can be finicky eaters and they're not crazy about sauces, but they love this dish! It's so full of different flavors." Christine Ecker - Linwood, New Jersey

  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and halved
  • 3/4 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup sliced pimiento-stuffed olives, drained
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives, drained


  1. Combine the thyme, lemon zest, salt and pepper; rub over chicken. In a large nonstick skillet, brown chicken in 2 teaspoons oil; remove and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, saute onion in remaining oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the artichokes, wine and olives. Return chicken to the pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 6-8 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°.
  3. Remove chicken and keep warm. Simmer artichoke mixture, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes or until liquid has evaporated; serve with chicken.
