Instead of the white wine, I substituted 1 cup of organic,free range chicken broth. I didn't have white wine vinegar so I substituted Raspberry vinegar. I didn't have shallots so I substituted half a sweet white onion, thinly sliced. I decided to kick up the flavor with an all natural honey barbecue sauce (no fructose or corn syrup), about 2 hearty squirts or roughly 2 tablespoons. Put the crockpot on at 10:30pm and shut it off at 5:30am, 7hrs instead of 5hrs. It was awesome! Tasty, slightly sweet and smokey. Chicken was so tender it sometimes fell from the bone....so watch out for bones in the broth. Comforting food for a cold winter night after a long day at work. Enjoy! Oh.....you do need some quality whole grain bread for dipping. It is a STEW!
