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.

This is a keeper

Love the easiness of crock pot cooking. I found myself adding additional salt on my portion to bring out the flavors. Next time I will try the Worcestershire sauce, that may work. I liked the thick gravy it made as well. Delicious!

Good Flavor

I added a very large chopped yam mid-cooking time and also at the beginning used six strips of bacon cut into one inch pieces. Used sea salt (fine) and 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce also (may increase another teaspoon next time. I don't know why some say there is no flavor. It was great and the yam even added a hint of sweetness. Will definitely make again. The bacon was smoked Applewood bacon so maybe that helped. At any rate this is a keeper.

Forgot to mention that the cooking time can be reduced. The first hour I set it on High, then on Low for 4 hours and it was done. Leftovers frozen for another cold Fall evening.


This is an awesome recipe. I only made a couple of changes. Added another beer and extra veggies.

Hearty stew with great taste and veggies

This was a quick and easy recipe, big on flavour and loved by the whole family - even by my husband who hates chicken, he went back for seconds! Will definitely make it again.
