Chicken thighs can take plenty of cooking without getting tough or drying out, which makes them perfect for the slow cooker. Here we braise them in Guinness stout along with hearty vegetables, with just the right amount of bacon for added savoriness.

Excellent

I would definitely make this again. I followed the recipe except added extra bacon. My family loves bacon. I prepared it the day before, put in the fridge and the following morning all I had to do was turn it on.

Great Taste

COMFORT FOOD to the nth degree

I loved it! I usually like lots of spices, but this satisfied. It tasted like chicken pot pie, sans the dough. I like the idea of adding a bay leaf. I also added extra garlic and pepper.

It was the perfect antidote to a cold, long day.

Wonderful texture, creamy sauce, chicken falls apart easily

Fantastic Chicken Stew

This turned out to be a fantastic slow cooker chicken dish. The combination of the chicken, vegetables and stout made for a hearty dish. Several reviewers described the dish as bland but I found it to be very flavorful. I did season the dish more than what was called for in the recipe. One reviewer suggested a couple shakes of Worcestershire sauce which I added and it definitely gave the dish some punch. A definite thumbs up for this stew.

Broth = deal breaker?

Made this many times last winter, and just made it again for the first time this season. It's still really delicious and I'm totally baffled by the complaints of it being bland. I was thinking maybe the broth people are using isn't flavorful enough? I use Better Than Boullion, chicken flavor (it is not reduced sodium), and follow recipe. I don't add any herbs or Worcester sauce and it is anything but bland. It is just so soooooo yummy.

Delicious, cheap, beer, bacon
Heaven in a bowl
