1 1/2 pounds new potatoes
1 1/5 pounds chicken thighs

1 cup dry white wine
1 Kosher salt
10 ounce frozen peas
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon

Recipe Directions for Chicken with leeks and tarragon

  2. Place the potatoes on the bottom of a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add the chicken, leeks, wine, and 1 teaspoon salt.
