Recipe for Slow Cooker Lemon Artichoke Chicken

Recipe for Slow Cooker Lemon Artichoke Chicken #slowcooker #crockpotrecipe #easydinner

Makes 4-6 servings

1 onion, diced
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp ground thyme
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and each one cut into 4 pieces
Salt and pepper
1 (14 oz) can artichoke hearts, chopped
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 (13.75 oz) can cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 cup sliced white button mushrooms

1.  Combine onion, garlic, oil, paste and thyme in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally until onions are soft.
2.  Place chicken in the slow cooker.  Season with salt and pepper.
3.  Add in the onion mixture and white wine vinegar.
4.  Cover and cook on LOW for about 4 hours.  
5.  Stir in the artichokes, cream of chicken soup, Parmesan, lemon juice, Dijon mustard and mushrooms.  Cover and cook on LOW for another 30 to 60 minutes.  If needed, you may thicken it with cornstarch.
6.  Serve over rice or noodles.

Yummy, flavorful and creamy deliciousness.  The onion/garlic/thyme mixture really worked to bring out the flavors.  The lemon and Dijon mustard added at the end was just enough to give a zippy taste.  I really enjoy artichokes and if I had another can on hand I would have added 2 cans.  I will be definitely making this one again.  My husband loved it too...no leftovers at all.  5 stars.
