This was fantastic! I used skinless, bone-in chicken pieces (1 small package each of breasts, thighs and drumsticks). I cooked on low for 5 hours, adding about a cup of chicken broth halfway through (I wanted to have more sauce at the end). I served to friends who were staying for the weekend and got rave reviews!

Amazing! I did saute the onions, mushrooms and garlic in the same pan as everything else. I added about a cup of chicken broth to the pan too. It was perfect. LOVE this recipe. Definitely try it.
