CHANGE IT UP
You can make this recipe with whole chicken legs, bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts, or a whole chicken.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a large, oven-safe skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the shallots, and sauté them until they are translucent. Add the artichoke hearts, capers, and lemon juice. Stir to combine.
Place the chicken pieces in the skillet, and top each piece with a small pat of the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Place the entire skillet into the oven for 45 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
