Who doesn’t love one pan dinners? I know I do. Clean up is a breeze. This Mediterranean Chicken Dish sure fits the bill! It is quick & delicious too!

This recipe is one that my family asks for a lot, especially my husband, and it’s good enough for company! Just add a salad, green beans, side of broccoli or asparagus and you are good to go!  This is so good served over Cauliflower Rice or  Spaghetti Squash.

I have to confess. I had just had ankle surgery & my husband threw this together while his sister & brother-n-law were visiting. I gave him instructions from a chair near the kitchen. If he can do this, believe me, anyone can. (It might not have been as pretty as if I had made it, but who’s complaining.)

My daughter gets creds for the photos.

He roasted broccoli to go with it since we were out of spinach. When I cook it, I just put the broccoli or spinach in with all the other ingredients & bake as a one pan dish! Saves time & clean up!

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 Organic Chicken Thighs
  • 2-3 Tbs EVOO
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1/2 c. kalamata olives
  • 2 Tbs. capers
  • 1 bag of frozen artichokes or 1 can of artichoke hearts drained.
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 Tbs fresh basil – optional
  • sea salt to taste
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach or 1 bag of frozen organic broccoli- optional
  • optional- can add feta cheese – not Paleo or AIP


Directions:

Tips:

  • If you can’t find artichokes without citric acid (they are hard to find) soak them in water with a couple of Tbs. of vinegar & rinse a couple of times thoroughly. I don’t know if this removes it totally, but it makes me feel better. 
  • If you like you can add basil & spinach, stir, & Bake for another 5 min until wilted.
  • Delicious served over Cauliflower Rice or Italian Spaghetti Squash

      Hi Brenda, Good question. I’ve never made it with already cooked chicken. You might want to cook all the veggies for 15-20 min. then add the chicken. You might also want to add a little broth, since it’s already cooked & there won’t be any to cook out of the chicken. Let me know how it turns out.

    This was so awesome and easy to make! I left out the feta cheese because hubby is not a fan. He doesn’t like artichokes or olives either but he ate them! We almost licked the bottom of the pan, scraped off the brown bits and everything! I served it with some cauliflower rice laced with preserved lemons.

      That is awesome Chrissy! I’m glad you guys enjoyed it! I love it when I have a dish that I want to lick the bottom of the pan & scrape off the brown bits! That’s a sure sign it was delicious! I love the idea to serve with cauliflower rice!

    I fixed this for dinner tonight for the entire family. I have 2 kids that are picky, and my husband doesn’t especially care for Paleo cuisine, However – this was a hit. It was full of flavor, and really just pretty to look at. I added feta cheese to my kids plates – and the entire casserole dish was eaten. This one is a win win!!

      Hi Cyndi! I’m so glad it was a hit with your family! My daughter also likes to add feta!The one think I like about it as a busy mom is that you can throw it all in one pan & put it in the oven! Thanks for the feedback!
