An easy one-pot dinner - delicious and filling. Great when you need something a little different for families of 4 or more! Serve over penne pasta and if you're feeling fancy, top with Parmesan or Romano cheese and fresh basil.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, Italian seasoning, basil, and salt. Saute until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes.

  • Add artichoke hearts, crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, olives, and mushrooms; bring to a boil. Add chicken, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Chicken tenderloins can be used instead of chicken breasts.

Oregano can be used in place of Italian seasoning.

You can leave this over low heat for an hour or so if needed, though the chicken may fall apart.

OMG this was delicious! My family and I loved it. It was uncomplicated to make, especially because I had pre- cooked my chicken the day before. I served it over pasta and my daughter licked the bowl clean. Read More

Drained the diced tomatoes as recommended, which made a nice sauce for the pasta. Didn't have penne so used rotini, which held the sauce really well! Omitted the salt - it didn't need it! Next time I will add capers as well. Also think I may use EVOO instead of butter...healthier! Read More

This would be very hard to mess up, even for inexperienced chefs. It's a shame it's not more attractive because it really is delicious, even if you aren't a huge fan of tomato sauces (but do drain the diced tomatoes). I have every intention of making it again! Read More

This is a great and easy recipe - especially easier because the chicken cooks in the sauce and you don’t need to pre cook it like in many recipes! Saves time. In this Covid 19 era I used what I had in the cupboard - so a can of green olives instead of black, boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts, and a can of artichoke heart bottoms instead of hearts. I would use green olives always in this recipe from now on, because they really added to the Mediterranean flavor. Likewise, next time I might add some capers, making it a little more Puntenesca-style. But as is it was an easy and exceptionally flavored dish. It took a bit longer than 20 minutes to cook the chicken through, more like 30 minutes+. Thanks for a great, easy recipe. Read More

Not the prettiest of dishes but it was full of flavor. A couple of things I didn't like is that there was way too much liquid so it lost its sauciness. I recommend draining the diced tomatoes. The other thing is that there is way more "sauce" than chicken so I really think it would be better served over pasta instead of on its own. Overall great flavor though and one I would make again with the changes I mentioned. Read More
