I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it on here or not but I am a little bit obsessed with artichokes. This is a new love and I blame it all on Papa Murphy’s Chicken Bacon Artichoke Pizza. That’s where it all started and I have been looking for recipes with artichokes like crazy since then. I have made a couple chicken dishes with them but my fave so far has to be this Lemon Chicken Artichoke Pasta recipe I found online. I made a few modifications and now it is super creamy and even easier to make!!
I have to admit that the first couple of times I made this recipe I used store bought minced garlic in the big ole jar. In fact I used that garlic in a jar exclusively until a couple of months ago when I got the courage to buy a bulb of garlic and just go for it. For some reason chopping/mincing my own garlic has always intimidated me but now that I have used the real thing I can never go back to the jars.
Y’all. It is so inexpensive and just tastes so much better!! It really makes my dishes taste amazing, including this one and I am obsessed. I even like the way it smells on my hands after I use it. I know, I am a certified weirdo. HAHAHA!!
But really, if you have never used “real” garlic before then I highly suggest you try it, it’s really easy and so worth it!!!
Now that I am finished waxing poetic about garlic let’s talk pasta. I have modified this recipe an few times and finally found what works for me. Some people like their pasta dry but I am a sauce-a-holic and love love love creamy, gooey pasta!! So if that’s the kind of pasts you like then you should definitely try this one!!
I have also made this recipe where I baked the chicken instead of grilling it and it just wasn’t nearly as good so I would definitely recommend you stick with grilling. I use my George Forman grill and it works like a dream!!
So anyway, enough pasta talk, I’m just getting hungry again!! My Lemon Chicken Artichoke Pasta recipe is below. Hope you enjoy!!
Do you love artichokes as much as I do??
Do you like your pasta on the dry side or saucy like me??
