Jump to Recipe

Artichokes are one of those ingredients that I’ve never used outside of the most common recipe. I’ve made a few variants of spinach-artichoke dip over the years. But Never made anything past that until recently.

I like the bold flavor of artichokes and wanted to make that into a delicious sauce. Of course, it had to go over chicken since that’s what we eat the most. Although, next time, I may try the sauce over salmon.

You can purchase the artichoke as a whole or you can buy it canned. I prefer the canned because it’s more convenient. If you’d like to try getting a fresh artichoke, check out this website for information on how to prepare the artichoke and how to cook with it.

Remove the chicken from the pan. Next, pour the chicken broth into the pan and simmer over high heat for 3 minutes, stirring to scrape any browned bits of chicken. Add the heavy whipping cream mixture to the broth and whisk to combine. Cook for about 2-3 minutes while whisking constantly until it has thickened.

Leftovers

Leftover chicken with artichoke sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, cook it all together in a skillet or saucepan. If the sauce thickens, add a bit of heavy cream, milk, or butter to thin it out as it cooks.
