Chicken & Artichoke Francese

  • SERVES: 2
  • PREP: 30 mins
  • TOTAL TIME: 24 hours (including brining chicken)

This quick, creamy, lemony chicken will please EVERYONE! (Except veggies and vegans.) But everyone else, yes. Super pleased!

If you love chicken piccata, this is your dish. The only main difference is that for Francese, the chicken breast is dipped first in flour, then in an egg mixture, before being cooked (piccata is the other way around). Oh, and piccata has capers. Usually this dish is made with chicken OR artichoke, but I say more is more, so I did both. Super simple to make, and you can upgrade it even more by adding a side of pasta to sop up all the creamy sauce. Add chili flakes if you wanna spice it up!

Nonstick Cast Iron Enamel Skillet
Nonstick Cast Iron Enamel Skillet

Cast Iron is the secret to restaurant-quality textures: think crispy fried eggs, perfectly seared steak, and crusty cornbread. It can cook almost anything and will last a lifetime. Naturally nonstick for no-fuss cleanup Use on the stovetop, in the oven, or even over a campfire Unlike most cast iron, seasoning (the process of baking oil into the pan) is not required
