Greek Chicken & Vegetable Ragout

Greek Chicken & Vegetable Ragout

Chicken thighs stay moist and succulent during slow cooking, infusing the accompanying vegetables with superb flavor. This easy braise has a luxurious finish of avgolémono, a versatile Greek sauce made with egg, lemon and fresh dill. Serve with whole-wheat orzo or crusty bread to soak up the sauce.

Serves 6

Prep Time 40 min

Total Time 195 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound carrots, cut into 1 1/4-inch pieces, or 3 cups baby carrots
  • 1 pound (3-4 yellow-fleshed potatoes, such as Yukon Gold, peeled and cut lengthwise into 1 1/4-inch-wide wedges
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 1 14-ounce c reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 15-ounce c artichoke hearts, rinsed and quartered if large
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Spread carrots and potatoes over the bottom and up the sides of a 4-quart or larger slow cooker. Arrange chicken on top of the vegetables. Bring broth, wine, garlic and salt to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour over the chicken and vegetables. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours on high or 4 to 4 1/2 hours on low.

Step 2

Add artichokes to the slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk egg, egg yolks and lemon juice in a medium bowl.

Step 3

Transfer the chicken and vegetables to a serving bowl using a slotted spoon. Cover and keep warm. Ladle about 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid into the egg mixture. Whisk until smooth. Whisk the egg mixture into the remaining cooking liquid in the slow cooker. Cover and cook, whisking 2 or 3 times, until slightly thickened and sauce reaches 160°F on an instant-read thermometer, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in dill and pepper. Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables and serve.
