This recipe is so easy and perfect to make during a busy work week.  Ready in under 30 minutes and packed with delicious flavor!  To start, marinade chicken breast in the liquid from jarred artichoke hearts for at least 30 minutes in a ziplock bag, but the longer the better!  After marinating, remove the chicken from the ziplock bag, set on a plate, and season both sides with Mrs. Dash Herb & Garlic Seasoning.  Be sure to rub the seasoning into the chicken!

Mrs. Dash Seasoning

 

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.  Add the chicken breast and sear each side for about 5 minutes or so.  Searing the meat before baking intensifies the flavor!  After the chicken has been seared, add vegetable broth, lemon juice, lemon zest, feta cheese, and diced artichoke hearts to the skillet.
