Ingredients

Instructions

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the flour and garlic powder in a shallow bowl and coat the chicken pieces in the flour.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden, about 3-5 minutes per side. Add 1 TBSP butter and cook 2 minutes longer. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  • Add the remaining 1 TBSP butter to the now empty skillet. Once melted, add the artichokes. Cook undisturbed for 2 minutes or until golden. Set aside with the chicken.
  • Add the shallots, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the empty skillet. Cook 2-3 minutes, until fragrant. Add the orzo. Cook another 2 minutes.
  • Add the broth and wine and bring to a simmer, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until orzo is just shy of al dente, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the cream cheese until melted and combined. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Stir in lemon zest and juice and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Nestle the chicken and artichokes in the orzo and simmer for 5 minutes, or until warmed through. Enjoy!

Notes

Tips and variations:

  • If you don’t have orzo pasta, replace it with rice or another short-cut pasta.
  • This recipe can easily be made dairy free by replacing the butter with olive oil and the cream cheese with dairy free cream cheese, cashew cream, or full fat coconut milk.
  • Don’t want to cook with wine? No problem. Substitute the white wine for lemon juice or more chicken broth.
  • Make this recipe with as many other vegetables as you like, such as broccoli, peas, green beans, cauliflower, or kale.
  • Don’t forget to finish it off with lots of parmesan cheese and a little extra lemon zest on top!
