This pasta is my culinary version of the song “My Favorite Things” except that instead of mittens and brown paper packages, it’s full to bursting with lemon, artichokes, chicken thighs and spinach. I could literally eat this every day for a month and not get sick of it.
The best thing about this recipe is that it’s super adaptable. If you don’t like chicken thighs (although, if you don’t I truly think that means you just haven’t tried them yet) you can easily substitute chicken breast. If you don’t have spinach, any other tender green will work in its place. Leave the lemon out if that’s not your thing. The artichokes are non-negotiable though as far as I’m concerned.
The recipe is ready in under 30 minutes making it a perfect weeknight meal, but its fancy enough to fool people into thinking you spent far longer in the kitchen than you actually did.
