Instructions

Brown the Meat:

  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. Once the oil is shimmering, brown the chicken in batches. Cook until golden brown. Set aside.
  • Deglaze the pan with the white wine.
  • If desired saute the onion and other veggies after you have browned the chicken. I prefer to skip this step.

Slow Cook:

  • Add the white wine mixture from the pan to the slow cooker.
  • Add the chicken and the rest of the ingredients, except cream and cornstarch.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours or on HIGH for 4 hours.

Thicken:

  • When there are 30 more minutes towards the end of cooking, add the cream, stir well.
  • In a measuring cup, dissolve 2 tablespoons of cornstarch in 1/2 cup of water until no lumps are visible and slowly pour the mixture into the stew.
  • Using a potato masher, mash about 1/4 of the veggies.
  • Stir and cook for 30 more minutes.

Serve:

  • Discard the bay leaves, garnish with parsley and serve.
