Stew Chicken and Artichoke Cavatappi
The artichokes in this chicken and artichoke cavatappi make this dish particularly tasty. If you’ve never cooked with them before, this pasta recipe is a good place to start. Did you know that artichokes are good sources of vitamins C and K, fiber, and protein, and are low in calories? Plus, cleaning is pretty quick as all you have to do is wash one pot – sign me up!

These stew noodles come together pretty quickly on the stove, so it’s important that everything is chopped, measured, and ready before you start cooking. First you cook the artichokes, take them out of the pan, then cook the chicken and take them out. Next come the vegetables, and then add water, lemon juice, and pasta and cook for ten minutes. Return the artichokes and chicken to the pan, cook for five minutes, and then dinner is ready.
Tips for Chicken Artichoke Noodles
artichokes: I love the artichokes for a deeper flavor. I cook them on the stove in two batches for 3-4 minutes. However, you can skip this step and just add them to the pot as described in step 5.
Sun-dried tomatoes: To keep fat to a minimum, choose un-marinated, sun-dried tomatoes, which are usually sold in a bag instead of a jar. They will hydrate and fill up nicely once simmered with the other ingredients.
What to serve with artichoke noodles
This healthy artichoke and chicken pasta is a complete meal in one: protein from chicken and parmesan, four vegetables, and carbohydrates from the pasta. If you want to round off the meal, serve it with your favorite salad.
- If you don’t have cavatappi, replace them with rotini or penne.
- Swap the kale for spinach if you prefer.
- You can use dried oregano instead of fresh.
