This dish is filling enough for lunch for two people, but if you're serving it for dinner you might like to add something like cauliflower rice or shirataki noodles. For this recipe I've used a small jar of marinated artichoke hearts, but a small can would work fine too.

How to Make Low Carb Chicken Skillet with Red Pepper and Artichoke

Cut two chicken breasts into chunks.

Heat some butter and olive oil in a large skillet. When the butter has melted, add the chicken and some minced garlic (or garlic paste). Continue cooking until the chicken is cooked on all sides, stirring frequently.

Add the bell pepper to the skillet, and continue to cook until it has softened and the chicken has cooked through.

Next, add the drained artichoke hearts and stir well. Taste for seasoning, and add salt, pepper and even a splash of lemon juice if you feel like it needs it.
