My husband doesn’t even like artichokes and he like this dish. He even took the leftovers to work for lunch the next day. The sauce turns out perfectly creamy and rich, so perfect that you would never even guess it doesn’t have cheese.

Now I know we have talked about the many different ways to cook chicken before, but for this Whole30 Artichoke Chicken I am going to show a new option.  To get that beautiful crisp brown finish on the outside of the chicken we are going to sear it before baking.

To do this start by heating olive oil in a skillet on the stovetop. Next you need to season one side of the chicken breast with salt and pepper. Once the chicken in seasoned and the oil is hot, lay the breast in the skillet (it should sizzle). Let the chicken breast sear for about 3 minutes on each side until its nice and brown.

Next transfer the chicken to a baking dish and use the skillet to create the sauce. The sauce comes together quickly and mostly involves using a can opener and dumping the contents into the skillet. Once the onions have cooked and the canned ingredients have warmed (this allows the flavors to meld). Dump the sauce over the chicken and pop into the oven.

In 35 minutes you will have a delicious healthy meal and not a lot of dishes to clean. A win for any weeknight meal.
