3 lbs skinless chicken thighs
1 cup chopped onion
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
8 oz brown crimini or portobello mushrooms, roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
2/3 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning mixture, or 1 teaspoon each oregano, basil, and thyme
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup tomato paste
1 inch of Parmesan cheese rind
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Put in crock pot set to high, and cover. You can also brown the chicken before or after removing the skin, and then pour off most of the fat before cooking the vegetables.
Cook the onion and green pepper in a large skillet with a small amount of oil on high heat. After 2 to 3 minutes, add the mushrooms. Two minutes later, add the garlic. Cook for another minute.
Add the wine, herbs, and more salt and pepper. Boil for 5 to 10 minutes, until liquid is almost completely boiled away. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary. If it tastes harsh or acidic, add just a touch of Stevia sweetener.
Add the tomato paste and Parmesan cheese rind, and stir to combine.
Spoon ingredients onto the top of the chicken, and cook for 3 hours on high or 6 to 8 hours on low. About half an hour before you are ready to eat, check and adjust seasonings one more time.
