A really simple slow cooker meal enjoyed by all the family this evening. Simply throw all these ingredients in to a slow cooker, cook all day and voila!

8 skinless chicken thighs, 300ml white wine, 150ml chicken stock, a diced onion, 2 bay leaves, a bit of thyme (dried or fresh) and a tbls of tomato puree. Season to your taste. Traditionally this is made with red wine but I prefer it with white 🙂

If you have time, you can thicken it up by melting a knob of butter in a separate bowl and adding a tbls of floured it to form a paste, decant the sauce from the slow cooker in to a saucepan and bring to the boil, as it boils slowly add the thickening paste whilst stiring with whisk until thickened. Add the chicken back in and serve with mashed potatoes, and greens
