Chicken with artichokes and tomatoes

Chicken with artichokes and tomatoes

Deeply browned chicken thigh meat is accompanied by salty ham, richly flavored artichokes, and sweet carrots and onions in this phenomenal weeknight dinner whose sophistication belies its simplicity. The wine, canned chopped tomatoes, and a delicate zest of lemon bring it all together for a satisfying meal that works equally well on its own, or served over hearty noodles.

Pro tip: Using the residual chicken fat in the pan along with the prosciutto to cook the artichokes really adds to their savory richness.

Made with Chopped tomatoes

The Mutti Chopped Tomatoes maintains all the freshness of freshly-harvested tomatoes. It’s a unique product because it is chopped especially finely for an abundance of tomato pieces in every bite and a rich, consistent texture. Mutti Polpa brings together the tomato juice and its most pulpy part, a feature which makes it ideally suited for long cooking times even at high temperatures, like in the oven. Alternatively, it captures the fresh flavour of perfectly ripe tomatoes so well that it can be used straight from the tin in dishes like bruschetta or salsas. It is also ideal for homemade pizza, for recipes with meat, vegetables and legumes and to dress fresh durum wheat pasta or egg pasta
