Easy Weeknight Meal Idea – Under 30 Minute Meal

Artichokes are awesome.  Artichokes that have been broiled until they have crispy bits all over them are the awesomest.  I’m not sure that “awesomest” is actually a word but, this artichoke chicken is beyond yummy, especially for such a quick and easy meal.

Broiled Artichoke Chicken with Feta is one of my “go-to” easy recipes when I’m having guests over.  It’s delicious, impressive, and can be thrown together in a hurry. 

The combination of artichokes and feta in this meal is heavenly!

What You’ll Need to Make Artichoke Chicken

Serving plate of broiled artichoke chicken with feta and fresh pasta
  • 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken thighs or chicken breasts (if using chicken breasts, cut them in half prior to marinating)
  • 6 oz jar marinated artichokes (Make sure that you buy the kind marinated in oil, not water.)
  • 2 oz feta cheese
  • Optional: 16 ounces fresh pasta (You can use any type of pasta you like, but I prefer to use fresh fettuccine  -found in the refrigerator section of your grocery store.)

A quick note on feta cheese, check the specialty cheese section of your grocery store for fresh feta cheese that is stored in brine.  Once you’ve had this creamy, salty, amazing feta, it may not be possible to go back to the crumbles found in the “normal cheese section” of the dairy section.

How to Make Broiled Artichoke Chicken with Feta Cheese

Step One

Begin by placing the chicken in a ziplock bag and pouring in the jar of marinated artichoke hearts. I’ve done this in the morning so that it marinates all day, but I’ve also let it sit for 5 minutes while the oven preheats if this recipe is a last-minute decision. Either way works and is delicious!

Step Two

Turn on your oven’s broiler setting and allow the oven to preheat.

(If you are making pasta, this is a great time to begin boiling the water and preparing the pasta according to the package directions. It should be done just about the time you’re taking the artichoke chicken out of the oven.)

Next, dump the chicken and artichokes into a collindar to drain the liquid. Place the chicken and artichokes on a broiler pan. (Separate the chicken pieces out about .5-1 inch and scatter the artichokes throughout.)

Place pan containing the artichokes and chicken under the broiler and bake for approximately 10 minutes, until the chicken is golden brown.

Now, remove the pan from the oven, turn chicken pieces over, stir the artichokes around, and bake for about 10 more minutes, until cooked throughout, and remove the pan from oven.

Step Three

Sprinkle feta cheese over chicken and artichokes and return them to the oven, broiling for another 1-2 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

Serve the chicken and artichokes over pasta (optional) and enjoy!
