Lightly coat an unheated large skillet with cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken thighs, several at a time, in the hot skillet until brown. Drain off fat.
Place chicken thighs in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with dry soup mix. Add mushrooms, onions, and carrots. Pour wine over all.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. If desired, serve with mashed potatoes and sprinkle with parsley.

I think I'd better taste before you alllll try. I'll report tomorrow.........

FYI:  One of the ingrediences is ( Beefy Onion Lipton Soup) I had never seen that before. Sure enough there it was in the supermarket. It has a couple yummy looking recipes on the back I'm going to try.
All you hard working friends out time to sit down, tune out the kids and in some cases the boss, put your feet up and enjoy a glass of glass at a time.....

  1. Looks good! Do you think it would work as well with chicken breast rather than thighs? I'm going to try this.
