Artichoke Hearts Glazed Chicken Thighs

This Artichoke Hearts Glazed Chicken Thighs recipe is so tasty I can honestly say it’s my favorite chicken dish so far. It’s simply that delicious. Plus, who doesn’t love a 3-ingredient meal, ready in 20 minutes, and that uses only one skillet?

I would not be honest if I’d take full credit for it though. I first came across a similar recipe on SkinnyTaste and I thought chicken and artichokes were a nice combination of flavors. I kept the main ingredients except feta, but made the rest of the recipe completely differently. I used the stovetop instead of the oven (Australia + summer + oven= not a good idea). I also decided not to marinate the chicken in the artichoke juice but instead make a glaze with it. Anyway, no matter what I say, just give this recipe a go, I’m sure you’ll love it.

Recipe Notes

I ended up eating only one thigh, and that was plenty for me. However Solal, my boyfriend did eat 2. You'll need to adjust the servings to your family's appetite!
