serves 4
4 chicken marylands
4 small onions, peeled & halved
8-12 large button mushrooms
4 tablespoons tomato paste
3/4cup OR 1 1/2cups red wine
Preheat oven to 100C (210F). Or get your slow cooker
Place chicken, onions, mushrooms and tomato paste in
an ovenproof casserole dish or the bowl of your slow cooker.
Pour over 3/4 cup wine for the slow cooker or 1 1/2cups for

Cover with a lid. Place the slow cooker on HIGH or place
the casserole in the oven and cook for 5 hours. Or until the
chicken is tender and the vegetables are cooked. Taste and
