Chicken Vesuvio

This is one of my favorite easy chicken recipes:
1 pack of bone in, skin on, chicken. (Either breasts or thighs or both)
Salt and pepper
Oregan and Thyme
5 or 6 small potatoes (red or yellow)
frozen (or canned) artichoke hearts
2 Tbs. butter
Gralic (chopped fine) I use the stuff in the jar
Chicken Stock/and or White Wine

*salt and pepper both sides (breasts and thighs with skin)
*Sear both sides golden in hot pant coated in olive oil (start skin side down)
*Half small red potatoes (Quarter larger potatoes)
*remove chicken and brown/golden potatoes
*Chop garlic and add when potatoes are near golden (2-3 cloves)
*salt, oregano, thyme added
*Add wine (1/2 cup) and chicken stock (1 c) when potatoes are golden
*scrap bottom of pan for good stuff
*replace chicken skin side up
*bake in oven (covered) at 450 for about 20 min.
*remove chicken and potatoes
*add defrosted artichoke hearts and 2 tablespoons of butter
*bring to very fast simmer for about 1 min.
*Pour over chicken and potatoes
