Slow Cooker Tender Chicken and Artichokes is a delicious Mediterranean meal that couldn’t be easier to make with just a few simple ingredients and a few hours cooking time. They do not get much tastier either. The secret ingredient to the crowd-pleasing meal would be to utilize Annie’s Lite Goddess Dressing–it is just as luscious and creamy as the first, but has only half the calories and fat. I really like the creamy tahini-lemon taste the dressing table adds to this very simple recipe. If, perchance, you can not locate Annie’s Lite Goddess Dressing, you may try a different brand or substitute some other mild creamy Italian or Caesar dressing you could locate. The taste might vary a little, however you’ll still end up having a tender and yummy meal which comes together in moments.
A delicious saucer. Not only: it’s a simple recipe, quick to prepare and chic. Chicken in cocotte with artichokes and bacon, enclosed in a crisp puff pastry casket. I made this recipe because, you asked me a chicken for Christmas, which was nice to see, easy to make and in terms of purses, then low-cost. I then decided to reconsider a recipe that my grandmother made a contemporary use as a cover advanced bread dough. Puff pastry is more well flavored, fresh and nice to look at. And the little cake always makes her figure! Try it, you will not regret it!

Pour the chicken and vegetable portions in cocotte or in baking dish, then brush lightly with egg yolk on the edge of the container.

THE PAIRING: For this recipe, of juicy character a little’ surprise, suggest you pull over a rosé wine. The choice fell on Macchiatonda, a Provençal Igt Toscana, product in Maremma, in Orbetello, from agricultural society “The Ride”. And’ a blend of Sangiovese (80%) and Teroldego (20%), of delicate pink (thanks to maceration on skins only three days), scent of wild berries and pomegranate, with a fresh taste, pleasantly acidic and persistent. Fermentation and take place in stainless steel tanks, which are accompanied by three months in bottle. We recommend serving at about 10 degrees.
