One dish broiled chicken

Hi ho friends. This is a super easy one-dish recipe, which is awesome because hello no mess. It also allows me to incorporate artichokes, which MFD loves so much he eats alone, and I only love when spinach artichoke dip is the vehicle. AND prep time to cook time, it's done in less than 30 minutes.

I also like this recipe because if you're like me you have this stuff in your house already. And if you don't, they're cheap to acquire.

8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
4 TBS olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
a few shakes each of garlic powder and parsley
2 14 oz cans artichokes, drained
1 cup bruschetta or petite diced tomatoes (I used Sam's bruschetta, I might be obsessed with it)
10 sliced baby bella mushrooms (optional)
1/2 cup shredded cheese (any type, I used parmesan)
Olives would also be awesome in this, but I didn't add them this time.

Spray bottom of a broiler pan (or any pan that can withstand temps of 500 degrees +) and preheat broiler. Move rack to the highest setting (3 inches from broiler)

Put chicken thighs, artichokes, and mushrooms in a bowl. Add olive oil, salt, pepper, and mix well to coat.

Put into pan, ensuring the thighs lay flat. Broil for six minutes, then turn thighs with tongs and broil an additional six minutes. Check doneness - you may need to flip one more time to ensure they're cooked through. If you do, check on them after two minutes then if done move on to the next step.

Remove from oven and top with bruschetta/tomatoes and cheese. Broil an additional 2-3 minutes.

Remove and serve as is with or over pasta, in which case it is no longer one dish. However I couldn't resist the siren song of the pasta. I boiled Ronzoni SmartTaste thin spaghetti, tossed it lightly with olive oil, then topped it with goodness. It was delicious. Chicken thighs, you are the unsung hero of the kitchen.

Mangia mangia.
