Chicken with a Lemon Artichoke Sauce


I love this dish!  This dish is chicken thighs baked in the oven,served over orzo and topped with a lemon and artichoke sauce.  I added frozen peas to the orzo while it was cooking just to add some more vegetables.  When the orzo was done I just sauteed some garlic in a bit of olive oil and butter and then threw the orzo back in the pot and added salt, pepper and parmigiana cheese.  Top the orzo with the chicken thighs and pour on this great sauce made with lemon juice, chicken broth and a can of artichokes.  Enjoy!

Chicken thighs with Lemon Artichoke Sauce
Ingredients:
4 chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 crushed garlic cloves
1 teaspoon oregano
2 cups chicken broth
1 lemon, juiced
1 (14 ounce) can of artichokes, drained and chopped

Heat oven to 375.  Sprinkle thighs with salt and pepper and bake for 35 minutes or until cooked through.
Meanwhile, cook garlic in olive oil for a bout 30 seconds or so and add in the oregano, chicken broth  and lemon juice.  Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 - 25 minutes (until reduced to about 3/4 cup.)  Add chopped artichokes and spoon over chicken.
