Easy Chicken With Artichoke and Mushrooms Recipe -- Gluten Free, Paleo

I'm having guests and want to make a delicious meal to serve them, as it'll be the first time they're over at my house. You know, make a good first impression and all that. But today I had a lot to do, got home quite late, and I still have lots more to do. So that means cooking a tasty meal between everything that is going on, and I can't do anything that would be difficult or time consuming to make. But I don't want to make "boring" food, ya know?

So I decided to do something a little bit different tonight.

Artichoke. They always seem impressive, even when frozen. And they taste good.
Mushrooms. Also fancy. As long as they're fresh and not canned.

So I chopped them up with a bit of lemon and other spices, and threw them into the oven, and they are mouth-wateringly delicious, and very different than standard fare, and if I may say so, pretty to feast your eyes upon as well.

This recipe is great and allergy friendly, Paleo, gluten free, and did I mention easy? Start to finish to put it together was under five minutes, and then just leave it in the oven to cook.

Definitely doing this again!

Easy Chicken With Artichoke and Mushrooms Recipe -- Gluten Free, Paleo, and Delicious

1 package dark meat chicken. This can be thighs or drumsticks or wings, or a mix.
1 package frozen artichoke hearts (one pound)
1 box fresh mushrooms
4 cloves garlic
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2-3 teaspoons salt
Fresh parsley

1. Chop up your artichoke hearts. 

2. Chop up your mushrooms.

3. Mince your garlic.

4. Mix mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt.

5. In your best roasting pan, mix your chicken parts with your mushrooms, artichoke, and garlic, so they're pretty uniformly mixed. 

6. Pour sauce over, distributing evenly.

7. Bake, covered, at 350 for about an hour to an hour and a half, mixing the mixture around about half way through, so that the parts that are in the liquid come out, and the parts out of the liquid go into it.

8. Bake uncovered for 30 more minutes, or until nicely browned.

9. Garnish with lots and lots of freshly chopped parsley.


What is your favorite food to serve guests, especially when you're short on time? Does this look like a recipe you'd try? Are you a fan of artichoke and mushrooms?
