Ingredients
  • 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 - 6  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  cup  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2  tablespoons  tapioca
  • 2  tablespoons  red wine vinegar

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.

Stir in broth, tapioca, vinegar, herbs de Provence, garlic, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour over chicken in cooker.

4. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 5-1/2 hours or on high-heat setting for 2-1/2 to 2-3/4 hours.
