Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken meat, large dice

  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed thinly sliced basil leaves

  3. Add artichoke hearts and cook until slightly broken down, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add wine, water, and juice and scrape the bottom of the pan to incorporate any browned bits.
  5. Cook until alcohol smell is cooked off and sauce is slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat, stir in basil and lemon, and serve.
