I feel peoples pain when they send me messages like, “but I don’t have all these fancy ingredients!” or “it takes too long to cook for myself!” I have heard your cries and I am on a mission to share more straight forward and simple recipes that truly anyone can cook like this sheet pan tomato and artichoke chicken.
You really don’t need any fancy ingredients or special equipment to get this sheet pan tomato and artichoke chicken on the table and ready for dinner. I actually got this idea from my dad who is an amazing cook. From time to time he will send me a picture of what he makes for dinner and this was his recent creation.
Growing up my mom made most of our weeknight dinners and my dad cooked on the weekends. This is mostly because my mom is really good at the quick ones and my dad goes a little more gourmet. Every once in a while my dad decides to cook on a weeknight and surprise us all with a simple yet delicious meal.

If you need to make something quick and easy, put it on sheet pan. I love making sheet pan meals with chicken or fish and lots of roasted veggies. If you time it just right you can get your whole meal cooked in one shot and with minimal clean up.
I served this sheet pan tomato and artichoke chicken with cauliflower that I toasted up in the air fryer. I have been LOVING my air fryer lately especially for roasted veggies. I just chop them up and spray them with some avocado oil, season with salt and cook in the air fryer at 400F for 15 minutes.
Some other side dishes that would be perfect with this sheet pan tomato and artichoke chicken are roasted potatoes, rice or a simple green salad with my everyday vinaigrette. I recently learned how to make rice in my instant pot and it is a life changer!
Like I said before you definitely don’t need any fancy equipment or ingredients to make this sheet pan tomato and artichoke chicken. You really only need a sheet pan and some parchment!! You don’t even need a good knife, but you will need a can opener.
As far as ingredients go its also pretty basic. You will need some boneless skinless chicken thighs, oil, salt, pepper, roasted and marinated artichoke halves, diced tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and some fresh basil. If you want to keep this even simpler, you can leave off the fresh herbs, but they do add a nice touch.
For this sheet pan tomato and artichoke chicken I got my roasted artichoke halves at Trader Joe’s, but I am sure that they are available at many grocery stores. When picking out your diced tomatoes for this recipe I would opt for unsalted and unseasoned so that you are able to control the level of spice and seasoning.
To make this sheet pan tomato and artichoke chicken start by preheating the oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place boneless skinless chicken thighs on the baking sheet. Drizzle the thighs with oil.
Surround the chicken thighs with tomatoes and artichokes and then season the full tray with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven at 400F for 20 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese. Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with sliced basil.
Allow to cool slightly and serve with potatoes, rice or salad! Keep reading to find the full recipe. If you make it please let me know in the comments or on my Instagram!
