Totally tasty and fun to make!!! Went crazy and sauteed white and red onions with mushrooms in coconut oil, garlic powder, black pepper, chili powder, and white wine (lots). I like it spicy but honey does not so no crushed red peppers. Added capers and black olives with some yellow and zucchini squash that weren't going to last much longer in fridge. Those went in for the last hour only. I will probably freeze some for down the road when that busy day comes around. Also got liberal with the white wine and let it cook. Plenty of sauce. ;) Also skipped salt.

- 12 chicken thighs (about 4 pounds), skinned
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 to 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper
- 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
- 1/4 cup sliced pitted kalamata olives
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Place chicken in an electric slow cooker. Add garlic to pan, and sauté 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; cook 30 seconds. Place wine mixture in cooker. Add tomato paste, crushed red pepper, and tomatoes to cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH 4 hours. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper, olives, and parsley.
Add capers along with the olives, parsley, and seasoning for a more briny flavor, if you like. The parsley goes in last to keep its flavor and color intense.
