1
8 ounce package fresh mushrooms, halved (or quartered if large)
4
medium carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 1/2
cups frozen pearl onions
 
Nonstick cooking spray
5
large chicken thighs, skin removed (2-1/4 to 2-1/2 pounds total)
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon ground black pepper
1
cup dry red wine
1/2

Directions

  1. In a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker combine mushrooms, carrots, and onions. Set aside.

Add chicken thighs to skillet, meaty sides down. Cook about 6 minutes or until brown, turning once. Add chicken to cooker.
