Monday's Menu: Slow Cooker Chicken with White Wine Sauce

(Don't mind my glass of raw milk in the background!)

This is a wonderful recipe that I originally used in the oven, but have adapted it to the slow cooker. It has a lovely, creamy sauce, and the tarragon gives a nice, very faint anise taste! Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Chicken with White Wine Sauce

1 whole organic chicken, or 4 organic chicken breasts, shredded or cut into 2-3 inch pieces (I will usually cook these in the slow cooker all day, shred them and then add the sauce)
1/2 cup dry organic white wine
2 cups organic chicken broth (if you're using your slow cooker, just use the broth/juices that accumulate in the bottom of the pan!)
1 cup organic sour cream
Sea salt to taste (I'd say about 1/2 -1 tspn)
Black pepper to taste
2-3 teaspoons organic dried tarragon
Optional: 2 organic onions, cut into rings & caramelized in a pan separately

In a 6-7 quart crockpot, cook the chicken on high until it is done. (Usually 6 hrs) Shred the chicken and return to pot. Add salt, pepper, sour cream, wine, and dried tarragon. Let the sauce cook with the chicken at least 2-3 hrs, stirring occasionally. Serve with steamed green beans and brown rice for a lovely dinner!

Note: you can also cook this in the oven- just cook the chicken until it is done on about 350, then shred or cut into pieces, and return to the oven with the ingredients for the sauce at about 250-300 degrees for another hour or so.

Bon Appetit!
