Skillet Chicken Parmesan with Artichokes

Chopped rotisserie chicken stands in for whole chicken breasts in this timesaving skillet dinner from Food Network Magazine. Though the process is simplified, all of the usual accoutrements are here: San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil. Throw in some thawed artichoke hearts for more meaty texture. Dovetailing Tip: Use the leftover chicken from day 2 for today's skillet dish.

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1-10 ounces package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1-28 ounces can whole peeled san marzano tomatoes, crushed by hand
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
3 cups chopped rotisserie chicken (skin removed)
1/4 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped, plus more for topping
4 slices rosemary focaccia (about 4 ounces)
4 ounces fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the broiler. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the artichokes and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is soft, about 30 seconds.

Add the tomatoes, 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper to the skillet. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chicken and basil; season with salt.

Meanwhile, toast the focaccia in a toaster oven or under the broiler and let cool slightly; roughly chop to make coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the chicken mixture and top with the mozzarella and parmesan.

Transfer the skillet to the broiler and cook until the breadcrumbs are browned and the cheese is bubbling, 3 to 5 minutes. Let cool, 5 minutes. Top with basil.
