Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher or coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 pound oyster or baby portobello mushrooms cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 20 baby artichokes
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth

Instructions

  • Cut each chicken breast in half, and trim off any excess fat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet, and sauté the chicken over medium high heat for about 2 minutes on each side, just until light golden brown on the outside. Remove the chicken to a plate.
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet. Add the garlic and mushrooms and sauté over high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until the mushrooms give up their liquid and it evaporates, and the mushrooms start to become golden brown. Add the white wine (careful it might sputter up a bit) and simmer for about 4 minutes, until about half of the wine has evaporated.
  • While the mushrooms are cooking, trim the bottoms and pointy tops off the artichoke hearts, and remove any tough outer leaves. Cut each artichoke in half lengthwise.
  • Add the chicken, artichoke hearts, sage and broth to the pan and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then cover the pan, lower the heat, and cook with the liquid at a very gentle simmer for about 25 minutes, until the artichokes are tender and the chicken is cooked through. Remove the lid and simmer for another 5 minutes, until the liquid has reduced a bit. Taste, and adjust the seasonings as needed.
