I made this fantastic, amazing, SUPER delicious dish last week. It was flavorful, savory, filling, and absolutely perfect. Wouldn’t change a thing about the recipe.
But, I refuse to show you a picture. I photographed it on the plate. In the dutch oven. And, re-plated the next day. It’s impossible to get a picture that would convince you that you want, no, NEED, this dish on your menu this week, tonight, NOW!
This is another home run from Danielle Walker of Against All Grain. Our good friend over at Honey and Ollie made it this past week too. That clever girl threw a leek in there. Oh goodness! That will be in my next version for sure. And, like me, she discovered that this dish, just is not made for photos, it’s made for eatin!
- 6tbsp bacon fat/ghee/unsalted butter, divided (we used butter)
- 2lbs chicken leg quarters/drumsticks/thighs (we used drumsticks, I think maybe thighs next time, but, any bone in chicken would be fab)
- 1tsp sea salt, plus more for finishing
- 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika, plus more for finishing
- 1/2 lb sliced cremini mushrooms, stems removed (Sprouts was out, we went with baby bellas)
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1tsp honey
- 1tablespoon coconut flour
- one jar marinated artichoke hearts
- Preheat oven to 375
- Place 4tbsp butter in large dutch oven on med-high
- rinse and dry chicken, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and paprika
- Add the chicken to the pot and cook for 8 minutes, turning every 2 to brown evenly on all sides
- remove and set aside chicken
- add remaining 2tbsp butter, and add mushrooms – saute 5 minutes
- stir in broth, vinegar, honey, and coconut flour and simmer 10 minutes
- return chicken to pot and scatter the artichokes around it. (I drained mine, the recipe did not specifically say, but, I think that’s the best bet)
- spoon some sauce over top the chicken and artichokes, cover, and place in over to bake for 40 minutes
- Remove from oven and finish with a pinch of salt and paprika
So yummy! Would be a great cold weather dish.
