  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts - I used thighs (Each piece of chicken should be about 4 ounces each.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 can (14 ounces) quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1 cup non-fat chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme


  • Ideal slow cooker size: 6-Quart.
  • Coat the ceramic insert of your slow cooker with cooking spray. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and place the chicken in the slow cooker.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix together the tomatoes, artichoke hearts, onion, olives, broth, wine, tapioca, parsley, basil and thyme. Pour mixture over the chicken.
  • Cover and cook on LOW, 4 to 6 hours or until fork tender. (Mine were fork tender at 4 hours so I switched the ninja to warm for several hours till dinner.)
