This crockpot white wine chicken with artichokes is a fresh, flavorful, and light dish. It’s super easy to make in the crockpot, but it tastes like a “fancy” meal that requires more effort. You definitely need to serve this chicken to friends and family this summer.

When making a meal for an special occasion, I used to think about ingredients that we don’t eat on a regular basis, like seafood or duck. Not anymore! This insanely simple recipe turns go-to chicken into a fancy restaurant-like meal.
Seriously, I made this crockpot white wine chicken with artichokes last week and I’m pretty sure that my husband (who is also an exceptional cook) has already asked me to make it again three times! So, schedule a date-night in, invite your friends over for a dinner party or just make an amazing meal for your family (both of our little guys ate it right up!).
This light dish is perfect for a summer evening!
Crockpot White Wine Chicken with Artichokes
Yields: 6 servings
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, tenderized*
- 1 can of artichokes (14oz), quartered and drained
- 1 can of diced tomatoes (14.5oz), undrained
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 3-4 cloves of garlic, sliced or minced
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon capers (optional)
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
*I recommend tenderizing the chicken for this dish. To do so, simply place the chicken on a cutting board, cover with plastic wrap and use a mallet-type meat tenderizer to pound the chicken out. There are a lot of delicate ingredients in this recipe that really shine through with a thinner cut of meat. It also pares down your cooking time!
- Tenderize chicken
- Place all ingredients EXCEPT for corn starch in crockpot.
- Cook on “low” setting for 4-6 hours, or until chicken is cooked through.
- Add corn starch and cook on “low” for additional 30 minutes or until sauce is desired thickness.
Serve over a bed of sautéed spinach, angel hair pasta, or both!
Label your freezer bag. Add all ingredients EXCEPT for corn starch to bag. Remove as much air as possible, seal and lay flat in your freezer for up to three months. When ready to cook, thaw, pour the contents of freezer bag into crockpot and cook on “low” setting for 4-6 hours. Stir corn starch into mixture and cook an additional 1/2 hour on “low” setting.

I am gone at least 9-10hrs during the day. Could I leave the crock pot on warm instead of low? I’ve tried chicken on low for that long at it was too dry.
No, I don’t think it’s a safe temperature for meat. If you’re ever able to buy a crockpot with a timer, I’d highly recommend one. I bought mine for less than $50 and it’s amazing.
This sounds delicious! Can the recipe be cooked on low for 6 hours, kept on warm for 3 hours, add the cornstarch and turned back up to low for 30 minutes?
Yep, sounds good!
I plug in my crockpot to one of the those $5 timers for Christmas lights. It works great!
Tricia I’m in the same boat as you. I bought a lamp timer from home depot. It was $4 and works great!!
Can I brown the chicken before freezing?
Hi, I buy my chicken in bulk frozen from Costco. Is it safe to thaw and tenderize, then re freeze with the rest of the ingredients? Thanks!
I wouldn’t thaw and refreeze. I’d either add it frozen or wait to add it the day of cooking.
You just saved my daughter! She is doing an internship and working 16 hour days. I peeped her about 15 bags for the next 12 weeks for her and her roommates. Hopefully these college kids will now eat better than microwaved popcorn and ramen soup! Thank you for helping this mom help her college age child!
Wow, you rock, Patty. Such a nice mom.
Thank you so much for the tips. I would have never thought about a lamp timer! Thank you all. As a single mother of 3 with a full time job, after-school activities, a full time student myself, and trying to get my business off the ground…..well, let’s just say healthy meals I can throw in the crockpot and have ready when we get home is a LIFESAVER 🙂 Thank you.
This is an excellent recipe. I pound the chicken then throw everything except butter and cornstarch in a freezer bag. So easy and really delicious!!
