  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 14 oz canned artichoke hearts, quartered
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine

  4. Add the onion and lemon to the pan along with remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Toss in the remaining butter and olive oil. Turn the heat down to medium and let the onion and lemons caramalized, stirring every few minutes.

  5. Once the onions are a deep golden brown color and soft, add the garlic and artichokes. Cook another 1-2 minutes until the garlic is fragrant.

  6. Add the wine to the pan. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until reduce by half, it should take about 3-4 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock and cream. Continue to simmer for another 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened. Add the chicken back to the pan along with any accumulated juices. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through.
