A yummy, easy way to dress up everyday chicken. Put it together in the morning in your slow cooker and dinner is on the table in a jiffy!
1-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts*
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup dry white wine

1 teaspoon chicken bouillon concentrate
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (13 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained
1 tablespoon corn starch
3 tablespoons water
1. In a large heavy skillet, brown the chicken in the oil over medium-high heat until golden on both sides. Transfer to a slow cooker.
2. In a small bowl, combine the wine, lemon juice, bouillon, thyme, garlic and pepper; blend well. Pour mixture over chicken; place artichokes on top. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours.
3. With a slotted spoon, remove the chicken and artichoke hearts. In a small bowl, combine the corn starch and water; stir into liquid in slow cooker; cook until slightly thickened. Return chicken and artichoke hearts to slow cooker and stir into the sauce. Makes 4 servings, each with 7 grams of usable carbohydrates.
* You may use boneless, skinless chicken thighs in place of the chicken breasts, if desired.
You can serve this just as it is or over rice or pasta. Carbohydrate count will be higher if using rice or pasta.
