Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 5 hours
Total Time 5 hours 15 minutes


  • 3 pounds (1.3 kg) bone-in, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup (68 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (divided)
  • 1/3 cup (78 ml) low sodium chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup (78 ml) dry white wine

  1. Set slow cooker to low.
