To amp up oven-roast chicken with artichokes, Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple drizzles it with a bright and mildly smoky charred-rosemary vinaigrette. The vinaigrette was inspired by chef John Manion at El Che Bar in Chicago.

How to Make a Roasting Rack


  • Four 4-inch rosemary sprigs

  • 3 tablespoons Champagne vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper

  • 6 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs 

  • One 10-ounce package frozen artichoke heart quarters, thawed

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup drained caperberries

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Roast 2 of the rosemary sprigs directly on the oven rack for 
5 minutes, until charred. Leave the oven on. Strip off the leaves, then finely crush them; discard the stems. In a small bowl, whisk the leaves with the vinegar, mustard and 1/4 cup of the olive oil. 
Season with salt and pepper. 

  2. In a large, deep skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook skin side down over moderately high heat, turning once, until well browned, 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate. 

  3. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of fat from the skillet. Stir in the artichokes, tomatoes, caperberries and the remaining 
rosemary sprigs. Top with the chicken and roast for 15 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the chicken registers 165°. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve, passing more vinaigrette at the table.
