Crockpot Dijon Chicken with Artichoke Sauce

1/3 cup Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

1/2 – 1 teaspoon dried tarragon, depending on your tastes

8 to 10 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup sliced mushrooms

1 – 14 oz. can of artichoke hearts, quartered

1/2 cup Margaritaville Lemon Herb vinaigrette of something similar, your choice

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional) I don’t add it, because I tend to use the full tsp. of tarragon.

Combine mustard, vinaigrette, garlic and tarragon in a large bowl. Add chicken thighs and toss to coat. Transfer to Crock-Pot slow cooker. Drain the artichokes, add them, the onion and mushrooms. Cover, cook on low for 4 – 6 hours. Stir in parsley just before serving if you opt to include it. Serve over thick (frozen section) egg noodle or rice. Enjoy!
