This was really delicious. The broth was amazing. I left out wine and tapioca, added a total of 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 10 instead of 8 boneless chicken thighs, because they shrink! Cooked for 6.5 hours on low, and it was fork tender. Left broth as is and did not thicken it. Served over elbow noodles with fresh broccoli. Definitely a keeper!
This is a nice slow cooker chicken dish. Loved the addition of the mushrooms and added a bit more than the recipe called for because DH requested it. I did not have the tapioca and I started to thicken the sauce with a cornstarch/water slurry, but decided not to as I didn't want to change the flavor of the tomato sauce. Since I was serving this dish with rice, I left the sauce just as it was. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2013.
