Baked Chicken and Artichoke Hearts Recipe

This is such an easy artichoke chicken recipe! You’re going to love it. In my baked chicken and artichoke hearts recipe, I have chicken breasts, tender artichoke hearts, and aromatic shallots bathed in a lemon garlic butter sauce. With just a few simple ingredients and minimal effort, you can whip up a meal that’s perfect for a weeknight family dinner.

What makes this dish a true winner is not only its delicious flavors but also its ease of preparation. I love this recipe because it is 30 minutes from prep to plate. It’s the perfect solution for busy weeknights when you crave something special but don’t have hours to spare.

The main components are boneless, skinless chicken breasts and artichoke hearts. These kitchen essentials blend well to create a dish bursting with flavor. The best part is that you likely already have most of these ingredients readily available because they’re pantry staples! Personally, I always make sure to stock up on parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and cream cheese, as they’re versatile ingredients found in countless recipes, particularly chicken bakes.

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes! To start, preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. While it’s heating up, grab your trusty cast iron skillet or oven-proof pan. Heat up some olive oil over medium heat and get ready to work your magic.

Season your chicken breasts generously with salt and black pepper, then place chicken “pretty” side down into the warmed oil. Let them sizzle away for a few minutes until they achieve a gorgeous golden brown crust. Flip them over and repeat on the other side – about 3 to 4 minutes per side should do the trick. Once they’re beautifully browned, remove them from the pan and set them aside.

Now, it’s time to add in the artichoke hearts, shallots, and garlic. You can use marinated artichokes, but I just use frozen. Let them mingle in the pan until they’re soft and golden, soaking up all the delicious flavors. Then, pour in some white wine (or chicken broth) and butter to create a luxurious sauce that will take your taste buds to cloud nine.

Nestle the chicken back into the pan, top it with slices of lemon for a burst of freshness, and pop the whole thing into the preheated oven. In just 20 minutes, your kitchen will be filled with the irresistible aroma of bubbling butter and garlic.

While the chicken is baking, you can prepare your side of choice. Whether you prefer to serve this dish over cauliflower rice, mashed potatoes, or alongside a crisp green salad, the options are endless. Sometimes I’ll even sauté fresh mushrooms. The versatility of this easy chicken dinner makes it a surefire hit with the whole family.

When the timer dings, and your chicken is cooked to perfection, take it out of the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a pop of color and flavor that will make it the perfect meal. You can also add lemon slices to the side of the plate for additional presentation.

And here’s a little tip for you: this Artichoke Chicken Bake tastes even better the next day, so don’t hesitate to make extra for leftovers. Simply store any uneaten portions in an airtight container in the fridge, and you’ll have a delicious meal waiting for you to enjoy all over again.

With this easy Artichoke Chicken Bake recipe, you’ll have so much flavor that it’s sure to become a family favorite in no time. Give it a try tonight and taste the difference for yourself!

  1. Loved this lemony flavorful dish. I used marinated artichoke hearts and boneless chicken thighs since that is what I had on hand. That resulted in longer browning time but otherwise I followed the recipe as written. My husband is extra fussy but he enjoyed it also. Delicious!

    1. So glad to hear it Maureen! Thank you!

  2. Did you thaw the artichokes first? Thanks!,

    1. Hi Rich! Yes, if you’re using frozen artichokes I would place the bag into a bowl of hot water to help dethaw quickly. Then discard any extra water inside the bag once thawed! xx

  3. 5 stars
    This was delicious! We used marinated artichoke’s as well, and I think this added even more flavor. This buttery, lemony dish was just awesome, we will definitely make again!

    1. Thank you so much, Karen!!

    This is so good, I’m already making it again a week later. I added frozen green peas to it, because I had no parsley and it needed some color. Also made it a one pan meal.

    1. Thank you so much!! I love the addition of peas! xx

  5. Is the chicken covered while baking?

    1. Hi Tara! No, the chicken remains uncovered while baking in oven. xx

  6. Making this tomorrow!!

    1. Let me know what you think!! xx
