Season Chicken: Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt and pepper for flavor.


Brown Chicken: Heat olive oil in the Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until each side is golden. Remove chicken and set aside.


Sauté Vegetables: In the same pot, add onions and garlic, cooking until softened. Then add mushrooms, cooking until they release moisture and brown.


Add Artichokes: Stir in artichokes, cooking briefly with the mushrooms.


Braise with Chicken: Return the chicken to the pot. Add chicken broth (enough to partially cover the chicken) and a splash of white wine for extra flavor. Add herbs like thyme or rosemary.


Simmer: After adding the chicken, broth, wine, and herbs, bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Cover and reduce the heat. Let it cook slowly for about 30-40 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and tender.

Finish and Serve: Check for doneness, adjust seasoning, and serve the braised chicken with its rich, flavorful sauce.
