Chicken and Baby Artichokes

This is my classic chicken and dumplings recipe but since the world is on a low carb diet, I substituted the dumplings for artichokes

  • 1 whole cut up chicken
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion-sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 8-10 baby artichokes 
  • 1 pint white mushrooms – sliced
  • 1 lemon

flour mixture:

  •  1/4 cup flour
  •  1/8 teaspoon salt
  •  1/8 teaspoon pepper
  •  1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Trim tops(needles) and stem off artichokes. Peel and the outer brown leaves off  exposing the fresh green leaves underneath. Soak artichokes in warm water with the juice of one lemon. This protects artichokes from oxidation (turning brown)

Set aside

Thoroughly flour the chicken in the flour mixture.

 In a large frying pan on medium heat.

Brown chicken in butter and olive oil. Remove from pan and set aside.

In the same pan sauté the onion until soft.(about 6-7 minutes)

Add the 2 tablespoons flour and stir together .

Add the chicken broth and stir scraping all the yummy bits  of flavor off the bottom of pan.

Replace chicken into pan with onions and broth.  

Drain artichokes and add to pan.

Add mushrooms.

Cover and cook for 40 minutes on a low flame.

If you do plan on making the dumplings follow directions below :

Prepare Dumplings

  • 2 cups bisquick
  • 2/3 cups milk

Mix Bisquick and milk together until moist.

Drop dumplings into pan (3 tablespoons in size) on top of chicken. Cook uncovered for 10 min. Then cover and cook for 10 more minutes.

Serve hot with pan gravy covering the chicken and artichokes and/or dumplings.

What I wasn't expecting was that other cultures and flavors would seep into my own traditions and favorites and influence a new batch of classics. Heres to evolving traditions and new memories!
