Chicken, Peppers + Artichokes


  • Author: Liz
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: Serves 2-3 people

Ingredients

  • Fat of choice
  • 2lbs chicken, diced into bite sized pieces
    I used chicken breast but you could also use chicken thighs here if that’s what you have on hand!
  • 1.5 – 2 bell peppers, washed + cut into strips
  • 8-9 artichoke hearts, rinsed + cut into quarters
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Dried basil or favorite herb
  • Salt + pepper

Instructions

  1. Get a big skillet heating on medium with your favorite fat, and make sure you don’t skimp on it – actually, go over board with it!
  2. Dice up your chicken and add it into the skillet, and let it start to cook. Top it with some salt + pepper, mix it about and let it keep cooking. I also like to add in some more fat here to ensure that it doesn’t dry out.
  3. While the chicken is cooking, prep your peppers and artichokes.
  4. When your chicken is 5 minutes away from being done, add in your lemon juice, peppers, artichokes, sprinkle of dried basil and some more salt + pepper.
    I also here add a great big spoonful of fat – because that’s how I roll and I like butter!
  5. Mix it all up, when the chicken is done taste test and adjust seasoning as needed!
  6. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

If you want this to be more creamy and have a bit of sauce {which is how I like it}, make sure you add fat in when you add your peppers and if need be a little more at the end when it finishes!

I also think adding in some bacon fat to this dish wouldn’t be a bad thing at all! Or heck, you could top this bad boy with chopped bacon!
