We recommend searing the chicken breasts before putting them in the slow cooker. Dredge the chicken in flour seasoned with salt and cook skin-side down for about 4 minutes. Once the skin is golden brown, transfer the the chicken, skin-side up, into the slow cooker crock. Add wine, mushrooms, onions and salt to the crock and cook on HIGH for 2 hours or LOW for 4 hours.

When done, transfer to a serving platter and set aside. Now it’s time to make the sauce. Transfer the remaining slow cooker liquid to a skillet and stir in a mixture of cornstarch and water that will help to quickly enrich sauce. Cook for about 3 minutes until the sauce thickens.
