Lemon Artichoke Chicken

How you cook and eat an artichoke is not obvious from its appearance.

The artichoke is actually the bud of a thistle flower. The leaves, called bracts cover a fuzzy center called the choke. The chock sits on top of a meaty core, called the heart.

The heart is completely edible and delicious.

You can steam, boil, grill, braise, or stuff and bake artichokes. You can even ferment them.

Artichoke’s when steamed are often eaten with hollandaise, vinegar, butter, mayonnaise, lemon juice, among other sauces.

Greek cuisine makes a stew made of artichoke hearts, includes, potatoes, carrots, onions, lemon, and dill.

Artichokes go well with spinach, lemon, garlic, onion, avocado, eggplant, sundried tomatoes, shallots, potatoes and arugula.

Herbs and seasonings include salt, pepper, thyme, lemon pepper, basil and olive oil.
