- 1 pound carrots (cut into 1 1/4-inch pieces, or 3 cups baby carrots)
- 1 pound 3-4 medium 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 can reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1/3 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
- 4 cloves garlic (minced)
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 15- ounce can 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
