One-Skillet Greek Chicken with Artichokes


  • 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil

  • 1/2 tbsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced (plus one more lemon for juice)

  • 8 oz marinated artichoke hearts

  • 1/2 cup olives


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Pat the skin of the chicken thighs dry with a paper towel then liberally season the chicken skin with salt.

  3. Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the oil and then add the chicken thighs to the skillet skin side down.

  4. While the chicken thighs are browning, season them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, red pepper flakes, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

  5. When the chicken skin is golden brown, roughly 10 minutes later, flip the chicken and turn off the heat. Tuck the lemon slices in between the chicken. Next add the artichokes, smashed garlic, and olives to the pan.

  6. Place the skillet into a 425 degree oven and let cook for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

  7. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes to cool. Serve and enjoy!

  1. how powerful is the olive taste? i have a husband who DETESTS olives but I love them. If I were to leave them out, will it greatly impact the dish?

    • Hi Jackie! You can leave the olives out if you’d prefer! As long as you make the recipe work for you, it should turn out great! Thanks for your question!

  2. This is one of my family’s go to meals. So delicious and fresh, feels like a hug in a skillet!
