Thanks to their tender hearts, artichokes are a delightful gourmet vegetable. Here, you’ll pan-fry them until golden, drawing out their herbal, nutty character (a bit like asparagus). The seared artichokes marry sweetly with the lemony, herb-spiced chicken, both sitting atop a salad of baby greens and beets dressed in a fancy champagne vinaigrette. Toss a confetti of chives and roasted pepitas to cap off this sweet affair, ready in just 15 minutes!

Preparation

Cook the chicken
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken breasts* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 minutes per side (2 to 3 minutes per side for chicken fillets), until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before slicing it against the grain.

Make the vinaigrette
In a small bowl, combine the champagne vinegar, as much of the garlic as you’d like (add ½ for a milder flavour), ½ the chives and 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Stir to combine thoroughly.

Sear the artichokes
In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Drain the artichokes and pat dry with paper towel. Add the artichokes to the pan and sear, 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P.
