Prep time: 25 Minutes

Total time: 25 Minutes

Yield: Serves 1

Ingredients

  • Boneless skinless chicken breast half (6 ounces)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil drained, and slivered
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts packed in water drained, rinsed, and halved
  • 2 scallions green and white parts separated, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Israeli couscous (optional)

Directions

  1. If you prefer, use fine-grain couscous, which will cook in less than five minutes.
  2. Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper. With the flat side of a meat mallet or a small skillet, pound to a 1/2-inch thickness. To soften noise, place chicken in plastic on a folded kitchen towel when pounding.
  3. In a medium skillet, heat 3 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Coat chicken in flour, shaking off excess. Sauté until golden brown and cooked through, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side. Remove.
  4. To pan, add garlic, white part of the scallions, and 1/2 cup water; bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits. Add artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, and remaining teaspoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Cook until artichokes are heated through and sauce has reduced slightly, about 1 minute. Spoon mixture over chicken.
  5. To make couscous, if desired: Bring a small pot of salted water to boil; add couscous. Boil until couscous is tender but still pleasantly chewy, about 10 minutes. Drain, toss with scallion greens, and serve alongside chicken.
