2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the onion and lemon

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]


Prep and brown the chicken

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into 1-inch-thick strips; season generously with salt and pepper.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the flour with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Dredge the chicken in the flour, turning to coat; shake off any excess.
In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pot.


Make the sauce

In the same pot used for the chicken, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the mustard, marinara, and 1½ cups [3 cups] water and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened, 2 to 4 minutes.


Finish the chicken

To the pot with the sauce, add the chicken and any accumulated juices and the artichokes and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the spinach, 1½ teaspoons [1 TBL] lemon juice, and 1 to 2 tablespoons butter (from your pantry), if using. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the ciabatta.


Toast the ciabatta

  • Cut the ciabatta in half horizontally; drizzle or brush the cut sides with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and season with salt.
Heat a dry medium frying pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Place the ciabatta, cut sides down, and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes.


Transfer the chicken, artichokes, and sauce to individual bowls and serve the ciabatta and lemon wedges on the side.
