This easy Artichoke Chicken Recipe makes an incredibly delicious meal with baked chicken pieces and marinated artichoke hearts!
I’m happy to share that I can still come up with different dishes using my two faves together, chicken and artichokes!
HELLO! Happy Sunday to you! Hope you’re enjoying it to the fullest with your feet propped up on the couch, remote in one hand and a fat bowl of Cheetos in the other. If I had to imagine it, that would be MY Sunday’s best, but only after adding THIS recipe to our Sunday supper.
Because you are absolutely one of my favorite people, I made you this Artichoke Chicken and I couldn’t wait to share it. Talk about an easy, super flavorful dish that you absolutely needed in your life, but didn’t know it. That said, run to get the ingredients. I’ll wait!

No really, you need to get these Cara Mia Marinated Artichoke Hearts. I know, I tell you that all the time, but they’re so, so, soooo tasty. Sometimes I don’t even use the whole jar in a recipe because half of them end up in my mouth… To add, their jars have gone from white to pink for Cancer Awareness Month.
Artichoke Chicken Recipe
This is soooo ridiculously simple. Deliciously simple. Like one of those dishes that is so easy and has so few ingredients but tastes SO DANG GOOD. It reminds me of this Baked Chicken with Spinach and Artichokes, which happens to be a favorite of mine.
I’m the kind of person who gets on a food kick and doesn’t stop. I will try to find 856 ways to include whatever foods I’m into at the moment in every recipe. Case in point: as of this week, it’s been squash-in-everything. Case in point #2: One Pot Chicken and Rice with Artichokes. This is very close to that, but minus the rice and plus the artichoke marinade. Result? Juicy baked perfection with A LOT of flavor. A lot a lot.
Totally foolproof and much simpler.
Your kitchen sesh with this artichoke chicken recipe will include a quick browning of those beautifully seasoned chicken pieces – I chose chicken drumsticks – and a transfer to a baking dish where our chicken will meet up with some onions and those artichoke hearts. In the meantime, we will use the artichoke marinade to mix it together with some garlic and brown mustard before pouring it over our gorgeous dinner.
45 minutes later, you will have the pleasure of biting into this amazingness for your evening meal. Theeee end. ☺
Cara Mia Marinated Artichokes are available at select Walmart, Safeway, Albertsons, Kroger, DeMoulas, Raley’s, Save Mart, Smart & Final, King Soopers, Schnucks, Ralphs, Sprouts, Bashas and Dekalb Farmers Market stores and ONLINE. Look for them in the canned vegetable aisle or produce section.

Delish and moist. I’m one person so I used 6 legs which was around 2lbs. I kept all other ingredients the same.
I’m very happy you enjoyed it! Thank YOU! 🙂
Can I use artichoke hearts in water?
You can, but in absence of that marinade/liquid, the dish will lack flavor. I would suggest to use olive oil plus dried herbs, and not the water.
Made this last night, it was fast,easy and delicious!
I am very glad you enjoyed it! Thank YOU! 🙂
Can this be made ahead?
Sure. You can assemble the casserole as instructed, cover, and refrigerate until ready to bake.
I am so excited to be making this! Never thought to cook much with artichock! I didnt have brown mustard so i used yellow. We shall see what happens!
This was delicious. I did not have brown mustard but used Dijon instead. I will definitely make this dish again very soon.
