How to Make Braised Chicken and Artichokes
- 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.
