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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place onion in a 6-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray; top with carrots and potatoes.

Step 2

Combine broth, next 3 ingredients, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour over vegetables.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

I found this gem in my Cooking Light book last year, and I've made it almost once a week ever since. Seriously. I made a few changes, however, and made it into a stew. I HIGHLY recommend this: use 1 &1/2 cups of broth. For folks who complain it's bland: I also added a few extra herbs... tablespoon of fresh chopped rosemary, as well as a few shakes of dried basil and oregano. If I'm feeling a little extra spicy, a few shakes of red pepper flakes. It goes really well with the flavors! I'm also a garlic freak, so I use 2-3 cloves. Don't be shy with the salt & pepper either.Served with a crusty whole grain baguette, this is hands down THE fall/winter meal. My husband loves this more than ANY dish at ANY restaurant!

directions are accurate:  see step 2 ("next 3 ingredients" = wine, thyme, garlic) :)

A little confusing but step 2 say "Add chicken broth, next 3 ingredients"... the next 3 ingredients are dry white wine, thyme and garlic.

As others have said, this is pretty bland as written. I made it first and followed directions. Kids ate it but husband and I weren't enjoying it. I kept the recipe however b/c it's a great base and can easily be adjusted to be more flavorful. Second time I made it I generously salt/peppered the chicken, and used breasts instead (shorter cooking time). Added tomato puree to the sauce. It was a nice, hearty stew when it was done. Basically, you can treat this recipe as a blank slate.

Ready when I get home from work, yet it only takes 3.5 hours in the slow cooker?? Even 5 hours like some reviewers claim...I wish I worked such a short shift.

This came out tasty for me. I doubled the liquids to avoid dry veggies, and I whisked 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard into the wine/broth. I used boneless thighs I had on hand and cooked on low for 5 hours. Delicious!

Thank god I had back up!

partner works nights, made this for him to wake up to as I ran errands with the kids. Poor thing woke up to raw veggies and dry chicken! I would suggest more broth for the chicken to sit in & longer cooking time! Was fine for me when I returned after 6 hours, not the time stated.

lol love

Additional thyme? …..the recipe ingredients sound good…..but where do you add in the dry white wine? where is the thyme originally supposed to come in? Good ingredients, bad directions.

Very bland. Veggies were raw. Cooked about 5 hours on low.
