Ingredients

  • 1 6.5-ounce jar artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

  • 4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • kosher salt and pepper

  • 2 beefsteak tomatoes, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • 8 baguette slices, toasted (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix the artichokes, Parmesan, and 1 tablespoon of the thyme in a small bowl.

  2. Cut a 2-inch pocket in the thickest part of each chicken breast. Stuff a quarter of the artichoke mixture into each pocket.

  3. Rub the chicken breasts with 1 teaspoon of the oil and season with ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

  4. Heat grill or grill pan to medium. Grill the chicken, turning once, until cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes per side.

  5. Mix the tomatoes, shallot, vinegar, ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper, and the remaining oil and thyme in a large bowl.

  6. Slice the chicken, if desired, and serve with the tomato salad and baguette slices, if using.
