Ingredients

  • 6 small red-skinned potatoes (each about 4 1/2 oz), scrubbed and quartered
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 6 5-oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 12 oz frozen artichokes, thawed
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh dill, plus additional for garnish

Preparation

  1. In a 5- to 6-qt slow cooker, spread potatoes along bottom. Lay bell pepper over top.
  2. Season chicken with salt and black pepper. In a large skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Add chicken and cook for about 6 minutes, turning halfway, until lightly browned. Arrange chicken pieces over top of potatoes and bell peppers. Reduce skillet heat to medium-low and add garlic; cook for 1 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant. Sprinkle evenly over chicken. Pour broth into slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from slow cooker and set aside on a plate. Ladle about 1/4 cup liquid from slow cooker into a small bowl. To small bowl, add lemon juice, yogurt and arrowroot and whisk until smooth. Stir yogurt mixture back into the slow cooker. Stir in artichokes and 3 tbsp dill. Return chicken pieces to slow cooker, nestling them on top of vegetable mixture. Turn heat to high, then cover and cook for 30 to 45 minutes, until artichokes are tender and sauce is thickened.
  4. Divide chicken and vegetable mixture among serving plates and garnish with additional dill.
