As many times that I have made this dish, I have never followed a recipe
While a cast iron skillet is not mandatory for this recipe, I absolutely suggest it. This is one item in the kitchen I tell everyone to invest in. Using a cast iron skillet for this recipe will allow your chicken gets a nice sear, keeping your chicken juicy and bring extra flavor to the garlic sauce.

Garlic Seared Chicken with Artichokes Recipe
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, pounded into 1.5" filets
1 tbsp Pompeian Olive Extra Mediterranean Blend
12 cloves garlic, sliced into 1/4
3/4 cup fat free chicken broth, reduced-sodium
1/4 cup white wine
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 can of quartered and drained artichoke hearts
Directions Preheat oven to 450°.
Heat Pompeian oil in a large cast iron skillet or ovenproof nonstick skillet, medium-high heat. Meanwhile, using a meat mallet, pound your chicken to 1 1/2" thick. Somehow, this is an enjoyable task on a bad day. Sprinkle your chicken with the first four (dry) ingredients. Add the chicken and cook 2 minutes on each side. Add garlic and chicken broth. Place skillet in a preheated oven and bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until chicken is done and garlic cloves are soft.
Remove pan from oven and transfer chicken to a platter, covering chicken with aluminum foil to keep warm. Add wine and lemon juice to the skillet and mash garlic with a fork. Add the artichoke hearts and cook the sauce over medium heat for 2 minutes or thickened. Serve garlic sauce over chicken. Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast and 2 tablespoons garlic sauce).
