This Lemony Artichoke Chicken is an easy weeknight dinner and is packed with zesty lemony flavor! I had a can of marinated artichokes in the pantry that I wanted to put to use, and so this easy dish came together with just a few other ingredients I had on had. It’s simple and delicious! And perfect for a quick quarantine meal….anyone else tired of cooking????
All you need: marinated artichokes, lemon, cherry tomatoes, chicken, greens (spinach, kale, chard a blend or whatever you have), and feta cheese!
I used frozen chicken tenders that were thawed and I cooked over the stove top, if you’re short on time or have pre-cooked chicken you could totally use that as well!
Brett and I served ours over baked spaghetti squash and the kids had it alongside some cheese tortellini pasta!
