White Wine Garlic Chicken

This was inspired by the great chicken served at a recent family Seder, with my own updates and tweaks.

Since this was a slow cooker meal, I started the prep the night before with garlic and onions.
The next morning (before work) I added chicken thighs and drumsticks to the lined crockpot, generously sprinkled with salt, pepper, and paprika. Top with the garlic and onions.

And then the best part: white wine. Pour that good cheap stuff on there.

I set it on low for ten hours. When I got home from work (8.5 hours later…ish) I added some chopped carrots.

For the side dish I did quick (because I started them in the microwave) pan potatoes with my roast vegetable seasoning and olive oil.

The chicken practically melted off the bone, with a zesty bite from the wine and garlic. The crispy potatoes were a great counterpoint.
