A wonderfully flavor-packed chicken and potato slow cooker dinner.


  • 1 large fryer chicken, quartered and skinned
  • Canola oil
  • 10-12 small white onions, peeled
  • 1/2 pound whole mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 10-12 small new (red) potatoes with skins
  • 1 (10 ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1 cup burgundy wine
  • 6 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled


  1. Brown the chicken in the oil.
  2. Place the onions, mushrooms, garlic and thyme in the bottom of a greased slow cooker. Place the chicken and potatoes on top. Pour the broth over and season with salt and pepper. Cook covered for 8-10 hours on low, or 3-4 hours on high.
  3. For the last hour of cooking, adjust the heat to HIGH and pour the wine in. Serve with the bacon sprinkled over top.
