5 Min


6 Hr


1 lb
baby red potatoes, scrubbed and halved
3/4 c
dry white wine
3 clove
garlic, thinly sliced or pressed
1 1/2 tsp
dried tarragon
1 tsp
1/4 tsp
black pepper
1/8 tsp
ground allspice (optional)
2 large
bone-in chicken breasts, skinned
9 oz
box of frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
2 c
frozen pearl onions, thawed
lemon, cut into wedges

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine cleaned potatoes, wine, garlic, 1 teaspoon tarragon, salt, pepper and allspice (optional) in 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. Top with chicken. Cover and cook until chicken and potatoes are fork-tender, 3 - 4 hours on high, or 6 - 8 hours on low.
About 30 minutes before cooking time is complete, stir artichokes and onions into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high another 30 minutes, or until artichokes and onions are tender.
Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon tarragon. Transfer chicken to cutting board; cut each breast in half across the width of the breast, not lengthwise. Transfer chicken to a platter; pour vegetables and sauce over chicken. Serve with lemon wedges.
