Chicken with Mushrooms and Artichokes June 15, 2012

Filed under: Pioneer Women — kariryerson @ 2:03 pm

When cooking on the road, I look for foods I couldn’t make at home due to the hubs hating certain ingredients (mushrooms). I also look for things that can all be completed on the stovetop since I am not always guaranteed to have an oven and I like to buy groceries before I get to my room the first night (since once I am in there I probably wont leave). I found this to be simple and tasty. The original recipe from The Pioneer Women calls to top with chives and parm but I opted to leave them out.


  • 8 whole Chicken Legs Or Thighs
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 16 ounces, weight White Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 5 whole Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • 1/2 cup White Wine, Or More To Taste
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth (More As Needed)
  • 1 whole 14.5 Ounce Can Artichoke Hearts, Drained , Rinsed, And Patted Dry
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 16 ounces, weight Pasta – Cooked And Drained


Salt and pepper chicken pieces.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken pieces and brown for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet.

Add sliced mushrooms to pan with the garlic, and stir around and cook for a couple of minutes. Add wine and cook for a minute while it evaporates.

Pour in chicken broth—you should have enough for it to be very liquidy. Stir to deglaze the pan, the add chicken back to pan. Add artichoke hearts. Put the lid on the skillet and continue cooking over medium-low heat (or in a 375 degree oven) for 30 minutes, checking to make sure chicken broth doesn’t completely evaporate. (Add more as needed).

Remove lid and reduce heat to low. Remove chicken from pan. Pour in cream and shake/stir to distribute. Add chives, then add chicken back to pan. Put lid on pan again and cook for an additional 10 minutes to thicken sauce. Stir and check for seasonings; add salt and pepper to taste.

Pour over cooked pasta.
