one of my fave meals is what I call artichoke stew that I throw into a crock pot

as this is a crock pot thing, all measurements are estimates

this batch consisted of
one bag TJs pearl onions, browned in cast iron (16 oz)
2 cans diced tomato
~one jar (tj's sized) roasted pepper, diced (12 oz?)
~one can artichoke hearts - diced
4 chicken thighs
a bunch or torn up kale
~ 1 tbs thyme
juice of quarter of lemon
salt and pepper to taste

method - the only prep I do with this is to brown up the onion in a bit of butter or olive oil. toss that with everything but the kale and lemon and cook 5-7 hours on low (a bit more if the chicken is frozen)

during the last hour I add the kale. I pull the chicken out and shred it and put it back in. finish it with a bit of lemon to brighten everything up

I also use spinach in this instead of kale - but I only put it in right at the end to wilt down - otherwise it just become gray

you can go veg/vegan by taking the chicken out and sub chickpeas
