Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place half the artichoke marinade into a large skillet over medium-high heat, and brown the chicken pieces until the liquid has almost evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the chicken pieces with a slotted spoon, and place into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Pour the remaining marinade into the same skillet, and cook and stir the onions, garlic, mushrooms, oregano, basil, salt, rosemary, and black pepper until the onions are translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Mix in diced tomatoes with their juice, tomato sauce, black olives, and chopped artichoke hearts. Stir the sauce well, and pour over the chicken in the baking dish. Cover the dish with foil.
  4. Bake the chicken until the sauce is bubbling, about 45 minutes. Uncover, and drizzle the Madeira wine over the dish; top with mozzarella cheese. Return to oven, uncovered, and bake until the cheese is melted, about 10 more minutes.

I normally don't like to try a recipe that has no reviews but any recipe that starts with a jar of marinated artichoke hearts is worth a try! My family and I were not disappointed! I didn't have Madeira wine so I substituted Chicken broth. Also, most of the spices I had dried from my garden so I only guessed the amount I put in (I may have been a little heavy handed). I would love to try this recipe with sausage instead of chicken and add some fresh spinach to the mix and some feta cheese along with the mozzarella. But it was very good the way it was written. Thanks Melissa for sharing!

This is a wonderful dish with pasta. We did not have Madeira wine, we use chicken broth as other suggested. Came out perfect and very yummy!! Thanks Melissa :)

A huge hit with my husband & teenage son! Made just as the recipe was written (used a cab instead of Madera). Served with fresh green beans & garlic parmesan biscuits. Will definitely be making again!

I thought I'd try this with hot and sweet Italian sausage (bulk meat-no casings) and substituted sliced green bell peppers for the artichokes. Delicious!

I added black beans and used less chicken. I added green peppers. Served it over rice.

This is a nice simple prep dish for a weeknight family meal. I prepared in the morning, covered with foil, and then just poppped in the oven at dinner time. I found it a bit on the bland side even with some doctoring. I added orange and green pepper stips to the mix, a very pretty presentation. I also marinated my chicken in italian dressing for even more flavor, and used some extra spices. Depite these efforts, this just didn't knock me out. The wine was lost, perhaps more in the sauce? Maybe some red pepper flakes, too. And I might add some chunks of hot italian sausage mixed with the chicken pieces. Hubs said this was "not up to my standard", OUCH! But I sincerely thank you for sharing this recipe, I think it was just the wrong dish for our tastes.
