Total Time: 6 hours 30 minutes
Recipe by: Rae


4 lb bone in chicken thighs with skin
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 TBSP cooking oil
1 lb mushrooms, quartered
2 small yellow onions, large dice
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup red wine
2 TBSP unsalted butter
2 cups chicken broth
6 carrots, long and skinny cut into 6 inch pieces
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme


1. Season the thighs on all sides with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Reserve the excess flour.

4. Add the onions and garlic to the pan and cook until aromatic. Add the wine and cook until reduced by half. Then add to the slow cooker.

5. Melt the butter in the pan and add 1/3 cup of the reserved flour stir until it begins to brown and has a slightly nutty aroma. Add the broth and stir together. Add the liquid to the slow cooker.

6. Add the carrots, salt, pepper, and thyme to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on the LOW setting for 5 hours. Add the mushrooms and cook until heated through,
