Wow! Does this not look delicious?
This recipe won a contest on a television show called The Chew.
Mario Batali and others judged 3 chicken recipes made by regular people, and this won first prize! I learned about it from a blog called Stacey Snacks.
Donna Giblin's Baked Artichoke Chicken: (adapted from ABC The Chew)
4 lbs. chicken legs and thighs, w/ skin (I used a chicken cut up, including breasts)
1 cup artichoke hearts, halved (canned is fine)
1 medium onion, cut into pieces same size as the artichokes
1 pound white button mushrooms (halved or quartered)
2 tablespoons brown mustard
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup red or white wine (you could also sub in chicken stock)
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 bay leaf
kosher salt and pepper (to taste)
Preheat oven to 350F-375F, depending if you like crispy skin or not.
Place artichokes, onions and mushrooms on the bottom of a big pan.
Place chicken pieces on top of the vegetables.
Mix the mustard with the rest of the ingredients and pour over chicken.
Season w/ kosher salt & pepper.
Bake about 1 hour, basting the pieces once or twice.
And you know by now we will be trying this recipe with chicken breasts...just not a dark meat family.
We've been playing too much this weekend for a real supper at home...it's just going to be take out...but thanks Stacey... We'll be giving this recipe a try real soon!
It's your turn. Let's talk!
