This quick one pot chicken recipe blends lemon, artichokes and fresh thyme into a fresh and easy dinner. Lemon chicken with artichokes for the easy delicious supper win!


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts, pounded until 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup flour seasoned with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 packages frozen artichoke hearts, quartered
  • 1 lemon, sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Shaved parmesan cheese for garnish


  1. Coat chicken in seasoned flour.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium high heat and brown chicken on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  3. Add wine and artichokes to skillet and bring to a boil. Cover, turn the heat down to low, and cook for 8 minutes. Uncover skillet and add lemon slices and cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from sauce and bring sauce to a low boil. Cook for another 5 minutes or so until sauce is reduced a little.
  5. Return chicken to skillet, stir in thyme until thyme is mixed in and chicken is coated with sauce. Scatter shaved parmesan on top and serve right out of the skillet – it’s homier that way!


If you want a little extra zing, stir in a couple of tablespoons of capers at the end!
