Back to school!

It’s that time of year again!  Moms are scrambling around…shopping for clothes and school supplies, squeezing in last minute beach trips, stocking up on snacks…it’s back to the grind.  Schedules get crazy again.  Which means less time for dinner prep.

So, this usually is when moms lovingly embrace that ol’ reliable time saving countertop appliance…the crockpot.

I don’t normally get happy over cooking meat before putting it in the crockpot.  It seems like it defeats the whole purpose of its convenience!  I have to say though, it really doesn’t take much time to do, and I found while creating this recipe that it really does make the dish better.

You’ll thank me later when you realize you have more time to pack your lunches 🙂

Crockpot Chicken with Wine & Mushrooms

6 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 (10 oz) package whole button mushrooms, halved
1 cup white wine
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Brown chicken in a skillet with oil.  Remove and place in crockpot.

In same skillet, add garlic and mushrooms.  Saute until slightly browned, then add wine and cook for about 30 seconds.  Pour over chicken, then add remaining spices

Cook on low for about 5 hours (this will vary depending on your crockpot and its size…mine is a 6.5 quart).  Serve with rice.

    Crockpots are great even for us cooks without kids at home anymore — there are so many busy days. I love returning home to smell all the warm aromas form something’s that’s been cooking while I wasn’t even there!

    Just made this tonight and it was delicious! As if it isn’t already easy enough, I browned the chicken last night and just threw it in the crock pot this morning. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs because that’s what I had on hand. I also added a sprig of fresh rosemary because I had some in the fridge that I needed to use up. Other than that I followed the recipe to the letter and it was perfect.
    Thanks for another great recipe!
