READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by Virginia Cherry Blo

Easy, delicious, one dish meal. Found in the, "Simple 1-2-3 Slow Cooker," Cookbook. Edited on 6/1/09: Removed Cornstarch from recipe and changed white wine to be added at beginning of cooking after reading reviews.

Hi, I'm the originator of this recipe, which won #1 place in a cooking magazine back in 2003. I want to thank you all for your helpful comments, and make a couple of suggestions. Most definitely, slow cookers are cooking hotter these days, and I would change the setting from HIGH to LOW for 3-4 hours. Cooking on high now will definitely dry up the sauce. Also, the magazine editor suggested using apple juice if you don't care for wine. I was not for that, and suggest using low-sodium chicken broth instead. Thanks!
