Slow Cooker Chicken Vesuvio

I wanted to make chicken vesuvio but I didn't want to have to spend at least an hour preparing dinner in the evening. So I threw everything in the slow cooker and it turned out very well. Resist the temptation to stir the crockpot as it cooks or you will have chicken stew!

1 3-4lb Chicken cut up or 4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 Tbsp flour
1tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary chopped
1 can of artichoke hearts drained and quartered
4 small potatoes peeled and quartered
1 lemon juiced
1/2 cup of white wine
2 cloves of garlic

Mix flour, salt and pepper in a large plastic bag. Add chicken and shake to coat chicken. Cook chicken in a large pan with a few tablespoons of olive oil for 10 min. Add lemon, wine, garlic, rosemary and potatoes to the crockpot. Place chicken on top and place artichokes on top of the chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Do not stir this as it cooks or it the chicken will fall apart! You can serve this right out of the crockpot. If you want to the chicken and potatoes to have a nice crust, put them in the oven for a few minutes. Turn on the broiler and spray a cookie sheet or pan with cooking spray. Take tongs and place the chicken and potatoes in the pan. Place in the oven for 5-10 min until golden brown. Top with sauce in the crockpot before serving.
