Greek-Style Chicken with Artichoke Hearts

2 generous servings

Roast chicken left over from the day before makes a speedy, elegant return appearance when you team it with artichoke hearts, lemon and dill.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion (4 ounces), finely chopped
  • 8 ounces frozen artichoke hearts
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill or ½ teaspoon dried, or to taste
  • Fine sea salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) sun-dried tomatoes (soft pack variety)
  • ½ cup gluten-free chicken broth, approximately
  • 1½ cups (6 ounces) roasted chicken thigh meat, in bite-sized chunks
  • 10 pitted Kalamata olives, rinsed and drained
  • 1 lemon, quartered
  • Fresh dill or anise sprigs, optional
  • Hot long-grain white rice, to serve


Warm the olive oil in a 10-inch sauté pan with a lid over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until softened but not colored, 3 minutes. Add the artichoke hearts and sauté until lightly browned, 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the dill and season lightly with salt and pepper. Add the tomato and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and simmer, stirring often, until the artichokes are tender and the liquid has almost evaporated, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the chicken and olives, and squeeze the juice from two of the lemon quarters on top. Heat through, about 1 minute. Divide between two heated plates and add a lemon wedge, dill or anise sprigs if using, and serve with the rice.

Cooking time: 10 minutes.
