  • Sprinkle some salt on the chicken
  • Preheat a pan on high for 2 min, lower heat to medium high, add some olive oil and brown the chicken skin side down first giving it a little shake for 5-6 min or until golden. Flip and cook for 3-4 min. Remove from pan
  • In that same pan, sautee the onions, celery and garlic for 3 min on medium low. Add in acini di pepe and brown for 3 more min. Deglaze with wine
  • Add in broth, beans and artichokes. Bring to a boil for 2-3 min. Kill heat and add in parsley, tamari, lemon zest and butter
  • After using the lemon for the zest, slice it into 8ths
  • Top with the chicken, the tomatoes and lemon slices
  • Bake at 400F for 20 min or until liquid absorbed, skin more golden and tomatoes slightly burst
  • Top with parmigiano, more parsley and that’s it
