This is the easiest eeeeeasy-recipe of all! Easy like Sunday mornin’! Throw it all in the crock pot and let it do it’s thang.

How are you, buds? Happy Sunday! Are you noticing the slight shift in afternoon light?! WAAAAAH!!
How cool was it when things were still bright at 8 pee-em! Having a late dinner in our backyard… bbq-ing all the things, including onions… getting hit in the face with soccer balls… Man, life was swell.

See? Only a week into Fall and I’m complaining.

Shift in thought-process must happen in 3…. 2…. 1….

Pumpkin, Apples, Crock Pot Dinners,
Fall-food makes us ALL feel like WINNERS!!!
GO BULLDOGS!

But let me tell you, this is what’s so great; this is a meal that practically makes itself. This is why I am so in LOVE with my crock pot. Or is it a slow cooker? What do YOU call it?!

Anywayz. All we’re doing here is pouring a jar of STAR’s Cara Mia Grilled Artichokes Hearts into the crock pot, layering a bag of julienned sun-dried tomatoes on top of that (not the bag, just what’s inside it. ahem), and a few seasoned boneless chicken thighs to make it all happen. It’s marvelous. ⬅ who uses that word? apparently, I do!

Hear me out, though. You’ll never be the same if you don’t try this easy, luscious, dreamy din din. It’s like your side dish and your main course all in one. Just get some really awesome bread to sop up the wonderful sauce that comes with it. Theeee End.

ENJOY!

    So good! I have added carrots and/or potatoes for something extra. I also wait to add the sun-dried tomatoes when there’s only 30-45 minutes of cook time left, this keeps them from burning.

  2. Stef

    I’ve made this many times in the crockpot.and loved it! My question is: Could I make this recipe in an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker and pressure cook instead of slow cook? If so would you ha Eva recommended time?

  3. Melody

    Question: I’d like to make this before heading out to work. I usually start with frozen chicken when I do this so that it doesn’t overcook. How long is it safe to cook the artichokes, though? Will that turn them to mush? Can I throw them in at the end?

  4. Marti Bowland

    Thank you for your creative recipe. We made this last evening using the stovetop to brown and the oven to roast it. We added more sundried tomatos because we love them. I did find the correct artichokes. I added more of the juice than you mentione but I don’t recommend that move. I didn’t have fresh parsley but I added a little dried after running it through the mortar/pestel. It was easy to create and tasty.

  5. Diana

    I love this recipe! I’ve made it just for my husband and I, and I’ve also made it for a small get together. It has been well received!

  6. Jessica

    Smelled so good! Made for my husband. He loved it. Stirred in half a block of cream cheese in sauce at end to make it creamy and served over rice. So easy!

    1. Hi Cheryl!! I have always read not to use too many pieces of meat in a slow cooker. I think up to 6 is a good number, maybe even 8, depending on their size, but anything more than that might get a bit crowded. You want them all in one layer, slightly overlapping so to make room for the rest of the ingredients. I hope that helps!

  7. I have everything to make this. Except my artichoke hearts are not grilled so I hope the taste is not altered much. I guess I could drain them and try to grill them. We are having a major snow storm here and it is impossible to get out. It seems like I want everything I see to eat and then don’t want it or can’t decide. This recipe looks great and it is going in my crock pot in the morning. That is if we still have electricity. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  8. Tina

    I like a lot of sauce with many of my recipes (I love sauce, and love having extras for a pasta side dish, etc.) Could I add some chicken broth or water (or something else you suggest) to make the sauce stretch? By the way, this looks YUMMY!!!

    1. Hi Karen! Yes, you absolutely can use chicken breasts, but keep in mind that chicken breasts will need less time cooking, so start checking around 5-hour mark if cooking on LOW, and a little before the 4-hour mark if cooking on High.

  9. I am in love with the photos in this post, Kate, which means I have to make this recipe ASAP! That’s how my brain works. 🙂 How lovely would it be throw everything in the slow cooker and come home from work to this?!

    Hello,

    Made this the other day, but didn’t see to use grilled artichoke’s. Does it make a difference in the way the dish tastes? Is there any thing i could use to flavor it up a bit more? thankyou

    1. Hi! Yes, the grilled artichokes do add great flavor as well as the sun-dried tomatoes. Did you use the sun-dried tomatoes? Is it bland? You could add a bit more garlic, but sautee it first in some olive oil. Also, you can add dried oregano, dried thyme and/or rosemary. Let me know how it goes. Thank you!!

      1. C. Munkacsy

        Hi Katerina, Yes, i did use sun-dried tomatoes,the addition of more garlic and oregano helped some, but next time i will see about getting grilled artichokes, thankyou C.M.
