Slow cookers are almost too good to be true: Throw some raw ingredients in there before you go to work or whatever, and 5-8 hours later, you have a delicious feast. You can buy them for as little as $25-30. As long as you put in a little prep ahead of time, come dinner time, you can afford to be as lazy as you want.
To make our stew, we subbed chicken breasts for the recommended chicken thighs because neither of us like thighs. This recipe was sweet, hearty, and delish, but it was lacking some green. In the future, I’d serve it with a side veggie or salad. I’d also consider serving this over brown rice or whole wheat pasta, because it’s a little on the liquid-y side.
Anything that has shallots and white wine as ingredients is pretty much guaranteed to be tasty.
