Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Rub each chicken breast with some butter and season it well. Peel the artichokes and quarter them.

Tuck the pieces of lemon zest and 8 sage leaves in among the artichokes. Roast for 20 minutes.
Put the chicken breasts on top and lay a sage leaf dipped in oil on top of each. Roast for 15 minutes and then turn the oven up to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 for 10-15 minutes until the skin is golden, the chicken is cooked, and the artichokes are tender. Squeeze over the lemon juice to serve.
