- 1⁄2 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, snipped or 1⁄2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 chicken thighs, skinned
- 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1⁄2 cup nonfat milk
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 1⁄4 cup cornmeal
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 dash salt
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon nonfat milk

- In a 1 1/2- or 2-quart slow cooker, combine carrots, celery, corn, onion, garlic, rosemary, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Top with chicken. Pour broth over mixture in cooker.
- Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. If no heat setting is available, cook for 5 to 5 1/2 hours.
- Meanwhile In a medium bowl stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl combine egg white, milk, and oil. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
- If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting (or if no heat setting is available, continue cooking). Transfer chicken to a cutting board; cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, cut chicken off bones; discard bones. Chop chicken; return to mixture in cooker. In a small bowl, combine milk and flour until smooth. Stir into mixture in cooker.
