Crockpot Greek Chicken

_MG_1474

Who doesn’t love a crockpot! I remember watching my mom assemble our morning breakfasts & packed lunches while piecing together dinner for that night in the crockpot. Come the afternoon, I would be excited to walk into a house looming with mouth watering aromas & then a flavorful feast for dinner.

With that said, I knew I had to have a crockpot once I got my own place – a decade & a few crockpots later I still have the same love. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall I put it to use.

  • Begin to layer crockpot: 3C baby carrots then 3 peeled and sliced yukon potatoes (1/2″ thick), 1.8-2lbs skinless/boneless chicken breast & flavor with 1/4t salt
  • In a side bowl mix: 2C low sodium chicken stock, 2t minced garlic & 1/3C dry white wine**- pour into crockpot
  • Cover & let cook on low for 4-4.5hrs OR on high for 2.5-3hrs

Once the time is up on crockpot…

  • Rinse & add one 14oz can of artichoke hearts – if large, quarter – cook on high for 5minutes (if you cooked on low turn to high)
  • After the 5minutes – use a slotted spoon & transfer veggies & meat to a serving bowl – cover to keep warm
  • Grab a small bowl, whisk together 1 full egg, 2 egg yolks, 1/3C fresh lemon juice & 1/2C of juices from crock pot – mix until smooth
  • Blend egg mix into remaining juices in the crock pot – cover & let cook for 15-20minutes – whisking 2-3x
  • Once it thickens (& temp reaches 160degrees) add 1/3C fresh chopped dill and ground pepper to taste

Pour the juices over your portion of warmed meat & veggies – Serve with crisp bread. Enjoy!

** I used Ramona Pinot Grigio – yes the NYC Housewife’s brand. Got to represent!
