Slow Cooker Chicken with Sun Dried Tomatoes
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 3 pounds chicken breasts boneless skinless, cut into 8 serving pieces
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- ½ cup white wine
- 1 ½ cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 8 oz jar of sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil with herbs
- 8 oz baby spinach
- Garnish: fresh basil leaves
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to skillet and brown on each side. Make sure to not crowd the skillet so the chicken will brown evenly.
- Transfer chicken to slow cooker as the pieces finish browning.
- Add garlic, wine, chicken broth, and basil to skillet and bring to a boil. Scrape up any bits from the bottom of the pan.
- Pour over the chicken and scatter sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts over the top.
- Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. 10 minutes before serving, add the spinach to the top of the chicken. Place the top back on the slow cooker and let the spinach wilt for about 5-10 minutes.
