All you need is twenty minutes to get this dish in the slow cooker. You'll have a hearty chicken and veggie supper waiting for you when you get home. If you don't care to use the wine, you can use 1/2 cup of additional chicken broth.
1 3/4 cups vertically sliced onion
2 cups baby carrots
6 small round red potatoes (about 1 pound), cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 teaspoon paprika
6 (6-ounce) bone-in chicken thighs, skinned
1 teaspoon olive oil
Chopped fresh thyme (optional)
How to Make It
Place onion in a 6-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray; top with carrots and potatoes.
Combine broth, next 3 ingredients, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour over vegetables.
Combine paprika, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; rub over chicken. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Arrange chicken on top of vegetables.
Cover and cook on LOW for 3 1/2 hours or until chicken is done and vegetables are tender. Garnish with additional thyme, if desired.
