The recipe name – Chicken Thighs Osso Buco – is a little misleading since according to Wikipedia, Osso Buco is Italian for “bone with a hole” (osso bone, buco hole) and refers to the marrow hole at the center of a cross-cut veal shank.
Since there was neither a bone nor a hole to be found in the boneless skinless chicken thighs I used to prepare this dish, I think it’s safe to assume that “osso buco” is referring to the preparation style – braised with tomatoes, carrots, celery and onions and topped with chopped a combination of garlic, parsley and lemon zest, called Gremolata.
You simply prepare the vegetables, stir them together in the slow cooker and snuggle the chicken down in the mixture. In a few hours your dinner is ready and waiting!
I served these luscious slow cooker osso buco chicken thighs with mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli and cauliflower. This recipe is definitely going in my “Make Again” file.
