Recipe type: Chicken
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 servings
  • 4 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 8 or 9), excess skin trimmed off
  • 1 tablespoon Tuscan seasoning (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1-14 ounce can of quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1½ cups (3½ ounces) sliced mushrooms
  • ¼ cup oil sun-dried tomatoes (from an oil packed jar)
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¼ cup rice crumbs (or gluten-free bread crumbs)
  • ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley (optional garnish)
  1. Poke a few holes in each chicken thigh using the tines of a fork (this will allow the rub to better permeate the meat). Combine the Tuscan seasoning, salt, sugar, and pepper and rub all over the chicken.
  2. Place the chicken thighs in a large, zip-lock baggie. Add the artichoke hearts, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, and capers.
  3. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic, and add to the baggie. Seal the baggie (pressing out all the air), and toss it around a few times to combine all the ingredients. Let marinate in the fridge overnight.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and empty the contents of the baggie into a large casserole dish. Pour the wine over the chicken. Bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the crumbs and cheese on top and return to the oven for another 30-35 minutes.
  5. Prior to serving, sprinkle the parsley on top.
Tuscan seasoning blends vary. I use one that contains basil, oregano, marjoram, sage, thyme, rosemary, summer savory, onion granules, garlic granules, sea salt, and crushed red pepper. In lieu of Tuscan seasoning blend, you can use a combination of 2 or more of these spices or simply use dried thyme and rosemary. Basic Italian seasoning works too.
