We enjoyed an excellent meal with this chicken, sauteed yellow turnips #85319, plum ketchup #64525, and rice and peas. Divine. Anyway, I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned and when all ingredients were in crockpot I added a cup or so of pinot noir, enough to just about cover everything. The fragrance in the house that day was sublime. Now, the chicken did turn a dark colour because of the wine. I removed most of the skin from the chicken and the sauce wasn't overly greasy. Thanks!
