This falls between classic roast chicken and a braise. Adding a bit of water to the juices and the garlic creates a sauce to spoon over mashed potatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1
1

Preheat oven to 375°. Heat oil in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken all over with salt and lay in hot oil, skin side down. Cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Turn chicken over and add 1 cup water, the garlic, and artichokes.

Step 2
2

Roast chicken in oven, uncovered, until cooked through, about 1 hour. Add olives and parsley.

Step 3
3

Prep hearts: Snap off thick green outer leaves down to yellowish core. Halve artichokes crosswise; discard thorny tips. Trim stem to about 1/2 in. and peel tough outer skin from remaining stem. Halve artichoke lengthwise; scoop out and discard fuzzy, red-tipped choke. Put hearts in cold water with a little lemon juice and set aside until you're ready to cook.
