    Chicken Thighs with Garlic and Artichoke Hearts

    I came up with this off the cuff and it's become one of my mainstay meals. The main ingredients are:

    Chicken thighs (better than breast because the additional fat helps keep them moist during cooking)
    Garlic (fresh or dried, but not granulated)
    A can of artichoke hearts for every 3-4 thighs.

    Brown the thighs in a skillet in the fat of your choosing, then add the artichokes and garlic and sautee for a few minutes.

    At this point I add some kind of liquid to create a sauce. So far I've use white wine, red wine and coconut milk all with good success. Just reduce the liquid until it thickens and serve.

    I usually make enough than I can freeze a few servings for future meals.

    Enjoy

    Sounds easy enough. Thanks for the recipe!

    My fridge and freezer are full of Tupperware meals too...

    Frozen artichoke hearts > canned.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Artichoke aioli - that sounds yummy. I have artichokes and chicken thighs at home, sounds like dinner to me!

    I agree, but I'm just using what I have in the pantry.

    Good idea, maybe even some zest. I have a lemon on my countertop right now....
