Chicken Vesuvio

    3 tablespoons olive oil
    4 chicken thighs with skin and bones
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 1/2 pounds small red-skinned potatoes, halved
    4 large garlic cloves, minced
    3/4 cup dry white wine
    3/4 cup chicken broth
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    8 ounces frozen artichoke hearts or
      1 cup frozen lima beans, thawed
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  Preheat the oven to 450F. Heat the oil in large ovenproof pot over
 high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Working in
 2 batches if necessary, cook the chicken in the pot until golden
 brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a bowl.
 Carefully add the potatoes to the same pot and cook until they are
 golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic
 and saute for 1 minute. Add the wine and stir to scrape up any brown
 bits on the bottom of the pot. Add the broth, oregano, and thyme.
 Return the chicken to the pot. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil over
 medium-high heat.

  Cover and bake in the oven until the chicken is cooked through,
 about 20 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a platter. Arrange the
 potatoes around chicken. Add the artichoke hearts to the sauce in the
 pot. Cover and simmer over high heat until the artichokes are tender,
 stirring often, about 4 minutes. Turn heat to low. Stir in the butter.
 Pour the sauce over chicken and potatoes, and serve.
