- 1 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 14 1/2ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 14 ounce can artichoke hearts, drained and halved
- 1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

1. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in flour to coat. Set aside.
2. In a large skillet, cook onion in hot oil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Stir in garlic; push mixture to sides of pan. Add chicken. Cook 4 minutes, or until brown, turning once. Add tomatoes, artichokes, broth, and pepper; stir.
3. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes, or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Remove chicken.
4. Simmer tomato mixture, uncovered, about 3 minutes, or until reduced to desired consistency. Stir in capers and oregano. Serve the chicken over rice; top with sauce. If desired, garnish with olives.
