One Of My Favorite Childhood Chicken Dinner Recipes

This is called: copying all my Mama’s recipes and updating/upgrading them a few notches. Thank you, Mom! Your food rocks!

Thank YOU, friends, for supporting the brands that make Diethood possible!

But HEEEEY YA! Happy Sunday! I got my coffee, my laptop, and a good ol’ lemon biscotti to keep me company. I am also giving a big huge high-five to my favorite artichoke-hearts-jarrers (that’s definitely not how you say it), Cara Mia!

First thing is first. If you haven’t noticed, clearly, we are it. over here in the chicken department. I have got so much chicken – breasts, thighs, legs, whole, or otherwise – and I guess that maybe has to do with the fact that I use it so much in my recipes. I have a gazillion chicken pieces in my freezer at all times. 2 freezers, to be completely honest.

What Is The Best Type Of Artichokes To Use For This Recipe?

But let me tell you about how I got to this recipe.

I had a jar of Cara Mia Marinated Artichoke Hearts, 2 thawed chicken thighs, and an almost-empty container with rice. What to do what to do? Flip back to your mom’s comfort-food recipes and get to work, that’s what.

Chicken And Rice Recipe

Personally, I think Cara Mia’s Marinated Artichoke Hearts should be added to every thing you make. The flavor, alone, is more than enough. They are crazy delicious, but also nutritious, and are gluten free, cholesterol free, trans fat free, sugar free. Told ya, it’s good stuff.

How to Make One Pot Chicken and Rice 

This chicken rice combo starts with searing chicken pieces in STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil for a nice and crispy texture. Not sure what you like to do, but I almost always will leave the skin on to cook the chicken, but when eating, I remove all of it. FYI: 1 chicken thigh with skin-ON is 150 calories, but without it, it’s 50 calories less, at the least.

Moving along, I then gave the rice and garlic a bit of a swim in the olive oil before adding the artichokes and popping it all in the oven for one last hurrah! 

The result was a creamy, silky, flavor loaded dinner for 4 with a side of a big, humongous salad that no one touched. Everyone was too busy scraping up all that was left in the pan. Even our 7 year old that thinks mac ‘n cheese is LIFE!
