It’s starting to feel like Winter is on the horizon. Heavier jackets have started coming out, and I woke up to a text of a backyard cover in snow this morning! In lieu, this week’s Savory Sunday is here with a cozy Autumn/Winter meal that is loaded with bright and delicious flavors. This dish was a major hit; the chicken fell right off the bones and it is extremely simple to throw together, a one pan wonder! Perfect for a Sunday night family dinner, or a meal prep for your work week.

    I have made many of @lexiscleankitchen recipes, but this one might be a favorite!! It was so amazing. I will be making this dish again – a great combination of flavors.

  2. Are “artichokes in juice” marinaded artichokes or artichokes in water? Or something entirely different?

  3. Shouldn’t there be a step 4-1/2 where you take the chicken out of the pan and add the contents of the bowl for some period of time?

    This chicken was DELISH!!! I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and don’t feel like I missed out on any flavor whatsoever. I had it with Cauliflower Gnocchi while my fiancé had it with angel hair pasta. He said it was better than some of the meals we’ve had out at restaurants. Definitely on the repeat list!!! ??

    I love this recipe! To simplify preparation, I added the onions, capers, garlic and other ingredients to the pan after I seared the chicken, and just mixed it around before putting it in the oven. I will be making it again this weekend for my dad’s birthday dinner!

  6. I had 1 sliced yellow onion and 2 whole garlic cloves leftover. Suppose they get mixed in before going into the oven? Can you clarify? Thanks. Love your site and dry rub wings, especially.

  7. I made this the other night and noticed that you have olive oil listed in the ingredients but in the directions, you never say when to use it. In the ingredients, it says 2 crushed cloves of garlic and 2 whole cloves but the instructions only say when to add the crushed. Can you clarify? I did love the recipe but next time I’ll probably use more artichokes. The flavor was great and the chicken was very juicy! I can’t wait to try more recipes from your site.

  8. I made this recipe for dinner tonight and it turned out wonderfully! I knew Id like it because the ingredients all work well together, so I took a chance and made enough to last several meals and couldn’t be happier I did! Great recipe! Especially the artichokes and capers. Thanks, I’ll definitely be making this again…and again
