Baby artichokes are really fully grown, just smaller when ready to be harvested. They are a great source of vitamin C, folate, fiber, and minerals—in addition to being beautiful and a seasonal treat. Try to find dandelion greens, too, as they have a fleeting season.

Instructions

  1. Whisk dressing ingredients together until well blended. Set aside.

  2. Heat oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add artichokes and potatoes; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Drain well.

  3. Arrange vegetables on baking sheet; drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in oven; roast 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Nestle chicken breasts in among vegetables; drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the dressing. Roast 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are golden brown, stirring occasionally.

  5. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Arrange greens on plates; top with artichokes, potatoes, and chicken. Drizzle with remaining dressing and garnish with olives.

Variations
