I used my slow cooker again today.
I substituted a LOT in this recipe, here is the original, I'll put a note at the bottom of what I used.
The chicken were super tender and my fussy 3 year old ate a bowl of this, she ate tons of the chicken.
And I didn't get to eat the pasta because I didn't know DH could eat that much, LOL...
Definitely will make this again.
2 (9 oz each) packages frozen artichoke hearts, defrosted and divided
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (14 oz) low sodium chicken broth
2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken thighs -----> I used chicken breasts
1 tsp mediterranean or greek seasonings
1/2 tsp salt ----> I didn't use this, it was already salty
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 medium zucchini, sliced ----> I used 2 red peppers, sliced
1 cup halved grape tomatoes ----> I used regular tomatoes
1 pkg (11 oz) dry whole wheat couscous ------> I used fettuccine noodles
In a 4 qt slow cooker, combine 1 package artichoke hearts, onion, garlic and broth.
Add chicken and sprinkle with greek seasonings and salt and pepper.
Cover and cook on high for 3 hours.
Then place zucchini, tomatoes and the other package of artichokes, re-cover and heat another 15 min or until veggies are cooked.
If using couscous:
Remove chicken and veggies and cover them to keep warm.
Stir in couscous and cook for 5 min or until liquid is absorbed,
Serve chicken and veggies over couscous, sprinkle with parsley if desired.
Note: I used one can artichoke hearts (15 oz), I put half at the beginning of cooking time, and half at the end with vegetables.
I didn't use couscous so there were quite a bit of sauce in the slow cooker.
At the end, I thickened the sauce with flour and water mixture and serve the chicken with sauce over cooked fettuccine noodles.
Oh and I forgot to read the recipe so I cooked the veggies for 45 min instead of 15 min.
I like adding the veggies at the end because they don't become mush like what often happens with other slow cooker recipes.
