Safeway has had some beautiful artichokes, and we had one in the refrigerator. It went into a pot to steam. Then it was to the freezer for a few chicken thighs, skin removed.
Into a cast iron frying pan at medium heat…olive oil, then most of an onion, chopped, browned. Garlic. Then the chicken, long enough to brown. I added a couple of nice hot peppers, a few sprinkles of Penzey’s Cajun seasoning, some water or white wine. Lower heat a bit and simmer, checking periodically and adding more liquid as necessary. Lemon juice also adds a nice zing. Cook until chicken is tender and gravy is a rich brown.
When the artichoke was cooked, it came out of the pot and onto a plate. And at that point I added a green pepper, chopped into large pieces, and several small yellow and red sweet peppers, and I let these cook with the chicken for 6-8 minutes.
Served over rice.
It makes for a quick, easy, and colorful meal. Oh, it tastes good, too!
