Hi! I’m Susan
I’m from The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen and I’m so happy to be here guest posting today at Noshing With The Nolands! Tara is such an incredible blogger and a wonderful person, with her request for a spring-time recipe this week, I was more than happy to oblige.
With the first day of spring last week, this was the perfect time for a light, simple dish that takes no time to put together! I love braising chicken thighs, it’s a quick weeknight meal, and you can’t beat the crisp skin and juicy interior. Best part, it’s nearly impossible to overcook chicken thighs, especially when you have a flavorful liquid to cook it in!
The addition of artichokes, lemons, olives and feta just screams spring to me. Don’t you agree?
- 1lb bone-in chicken thighs
- 1/2 teaspoon za'atar seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 9oz package frozen artichoke hearts
- 1/4 cup pitted Greek olives, sliced
- 1/4 cup Bulgarian feta, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
- Pat the chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and season them on both sides with the za'atar, salt and pepper.
- In a wide oven safe saute pan or brasier over medium heat place the thighs skin side down to cook for 10 minutes or until the skin is crispy and easily releases itself from the pan.
- While the chicken is cooking, pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F.
- Remove the chicken from the pan and deglaze with the chicken stock and wine and stir in the lemon juice. Turn off the heat and add the chicken back, skin side up, making sure the liquid does not cover the top of the chicken.
- Add the artichokes to the pan and cook in the oven for 20 minutes or until the thighs are completely cooked through.
- Remove and sprinkle the sliced olives and feta around the chicken and artichokes.
- Serve immediately.
