Heat oil in large Dutch Oven, or deep skillet. Salt and pepper chicken, then brown in oil, approximately 4-5 minutes on each side. When there are approx. 2 minutes left, add the onion to allow it to soften. Combine all other ingrediants, except the artichoke hearts, in a bowl and stir to combine.

Lower heat on stove to medium, add wine mixture to chicken. Add artichoke hearts on top and around the chicken. Cover and simmer for approximately 45 minutes-1 hour, until chicken is tender.
