It was another late night dinner when Handsome got home from school at 10 PM. I always feel bad because he doesn’t often get a lot to eat during the day and being a hard worker, I want to make sure he gets at least one good meal a day. Not to mention, we both love chicken, and he loves himself some artichokes (not sure that I do).

I haven’t used artichokes much, and the few times I’ve had them (canned), they seemed bitter and a little grainy. But I was determined to use them.

So, with no real idea of what I wanted to make, I went town in the kitchen making this hearty, easy artichoke chicken pasta.

Ok, if you don’t have artichokes on hand, I’ve got you covered. Check these out!

  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast

For the Pasta:

  • 1 cup cream sauce ( I used a leftover Fontina cream sauce I had made previously, and thinned it out more with milk).
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 6 slices bacon, diced
  • 15 oz can artichokes
  • 12 oz Pasta of choice

Instructions

  1. Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, Italian seasonings, and salt and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Place chicken in a zip top bag and add marinate.
  3. Close the bag and let chicken marinate for 1 to 12 hours.
  4. Heat grill to medium high. Cook chicken 10-15 minutes or until done.
  5. Meanwhile, bring heavily salted water to a boil for the pasta. Boil per directions on box.
  6. In skillet heated to medium-high, saute onion in olive oil 5 minutes.
  7. Add bacon and saute until crisp. Drain.
  8. In same skillet, add artichokes and heat through.
  9. Chop the chicken into bite size pieces.
  10. Toss pasta, with your cream sauce of choice, artichoke bacon mix, and chicken.
  11. Top with fresh Parmesan, parsley and fresh black pepper.

Notes

The lemon in the chicken really stood out, which was great because I was afraid the cream sauce and artichoke would over power it. It looked super fancy and really only took 20 minutes to pull together. Quick and tasty – that’s what we’re talking about.

Great combination, artichokes and chicken are amazing together. Reminds me of an Artichoke Beurre Blanc sauce I serve with pan sauted chicken breast.

Bon appetit! CCR =:~)
