Artichoke Lemon Chicken
Artichoke Lemon Chicken
You ready for a super quick and healthy entrée that will become a staple in your weekly cooking routine? This Artichoke Lemon Chicken is exactly that! It comes together in a matter of minutes, has so much fresh flavor, and pairs perfectly with just about any side or salad! It's made with a handful of simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen but somehow manages to look like a gourmet meal... who doesn't love that!?
I originally posted this recipe on the blog back in 2013, in those early when I didn't have the slightest idea about food photography, but even with the old photos, it's managed to be one of my most popular pins on Pinterest! After seeing it repinned over and over, I decided it was time to give not only the photos a refresh, but also the liven up the recipe a bit.
The original recipe is made with a jar of Trader Joe's Artichoke Antipasto spread. That's an extra quick way to make this dish, but since it is made with canola oil (an ingredient I like to avoid as it's one of the most inflammatory oils), I figured I should make my own version using the simplest and cleanest of ingredients. I tested it out and couldn't believe how easy it was to whip up and how much it brightens up the recipe with so much freshness! I'll never go back to a jar of it again! This Artichoke Spread is so versatile and can be used as an appetizer with crackers, mixed into pasta, or on top of your favorite fish. I mean how delish does this look!?
For the Artichoke Antipasto:
1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
3 tbsp parsley, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
(optional: 1/3 cup parmesan cheese - leave out to keep it paleo)
For the chicken:
4 organic chicken breasts
Salt & pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Zest of 1/2 lemon
Squeeze of lemon juice
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Store any extra Artichoke Antipasto in a jar in the fridge and serve it with healthy crackers, mixed into pasta or cauliflower rice, or on your favorite fish. Enjoy!
Hope you love this recipe as much as I do! And because I'm overly nostalgic, while I can definitely update food photos, I can't seem to delete these vintage WNB videos from the early days! Enjoy!!

I am going to try this recipe this week! Thank you for the idea and tips.

Hi Mary! :) Definitely use the fresh basil from your plant! You can substitute about 2 tsp of chopped basil (or more if you love basil like I do)!

Hi Lindsay, this recipe looks great! Where did you purchase your hand held juicer?
3/19/2013 11:31:58 am
Hi Veronica! You can buy the juicer at any kitchen store... mine is from Sur La Table, but they have them at Crate & Barrel, Target, or Bed Bath & Beyond.

I made this AMAZING recipe last night! It was SOO easy, quick and delicious. Brent said it was the best meal I've ever made him! I have never cooked with basil before, now I'm obsessed. The Trader Joe frozen cubes make it so easy to cook with. No worries about chopping and measuring, AND they don't go bad!

what are appropriate substitutes for the TJ's frozen garlic cube and frozen basil cube? Have no TJ here and did purchase the TJ artichoke antipasto today while visiting my daughter at Va Beach.
