Oxmoor House
6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup rice, 1 drumstick, 1 thigh, and about 1/2 cup sauce)

This slow cooker chicken dish is simple, but packed with rich flavors in the white wine, chopped tomatoes and variant spices.  Serve over hot cooked rice.  If don't care to cook with the wine, use an equal amount of chicken broth.

How to Make It

Step 1

Trim fat from chicken. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of chicken; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until browned, turning occasionally. Place chicken in a 5-quart electric slow cooker. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken.

Step 2

Add onion and garlic to pan; sauté 2 minutes. Add wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add tomatoes; remove from heat. Stir in Italian seasoning and next 4 ingredients (through red pepper). Pour tomato mixture over chicken in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 hours. Serve chicken and tomato sauce over rice.

One of my favorite "make ahead" recipes, the chicken and sauce freeze great! I made some changes to the original recipe, which you can see with step-by-step photos here: http://www.icancookthat.org/2015/05/slow-cooker-saucy-chicken-over-rice.html

Pretty good, could be great

3.5 stars.  I used chicken quarters instead of individual pieces.  I think 4 hours would've been fine as parts of the meat were a little dry.  To me, the flavors were just ok.  More garlic next time...maybe some capers or sliced olives.  Definitely needed more sauce.  But with a few tweaks, this could be some great comfort food.

Very good and flavourful recipe. But I served it with Tabbouleh salad, not with rice. I prepared it for our assembly, and it seems to me that everyone liked it.

Very delicious. I used jasmine rice coupled with sauteed green beans to complete the meal. The kids loved it as well. Definite repeat!

Very easy and delicious! Put in your crock pot and forget. Add a green salad to the meal and it is a complete dinner.
