Here's a dinnertime warmer with a hint of spring's sweetness, designed for that day when you'd rather be outside raking the leaves from the garden, getting it ready for what's ahead, than slaving over the stove.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chicken, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, shallots, garlic, wine, rosemary, salt and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker; stir to combine. Put the lid on and cook on low until the potatoes are tender, about 5 hours. Before serving, remove bones from the chicken, if desired, and stir in vinegar.



Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.

For easy cleanup, try a slow-cooker liner. These heat-resistant, disposable liners fit neatly inside the insert and help prevent food from sticking to the bottom and sides of your slow cooker.

A Keeper I don't have a slow-cooker but I baked it for 5 hours in my oven on a low temperature and it came out well. Pros: Filling Read More

delicious and healthy I loved this recipe i did tweek it however to make it work and it turned out wonderful. to start i used a none sparkling mascato for the wine and doubled the amount which really blended well with the flavor of the sweet potato. I used onion instead of scallions. I added some herbs de provence to the mix and it really complemented the dish. I cut the sweet potatoes into large slices. I put everything except the vinegar in a large ziploc bag the night before and froze the whole thing over night.The next day I dumped the contents into the crock pot put it on low and when I came home from work 8 hours later it was perfect. The potatoes were perfectly cooked not mushy I will definatly be making this again. Pros: easy slow cooker Read More

Mushy The cook time was too long. The potatoes turned very mushy. Not at all as presented. Very disappointing. Read More

Bland and Weird I've had a brand new 5 quart slow cooker sitting around for a year and I finally wanted to try it out (i'm not much of a cook). I was doing a little recipe browsing and saw this. The ingredients were promising it sounded lite and flavorful. I followed the recipe to the T... as I said I'm not much of a cook and creativity in the kitchen eludes me. Prep was simple enough so I had high hopes. Upon tasting it was a disappointment. The only flavor was the shallot. This recipe calls for too many. The veggies got too soft and the whole thing had an unpleasant smell. It just doesn't seem to blend. The rosemary goes unnoticed and sweet potatoes lost their flavor. It was eatable but far from special. Maybe those with a flare in the kitchen can make this recipe better but we recipe followers are out of luck with this one. Don't waste your time! Pros: The Chicken is Tender Cons: Too much onion bad combination! Read More

Great Easy Dinner I made this tonight with only a few changes. I sprinkled a chicken bouillon cube over the ingredients and cut the potatoes into quarters. Delish! Everyone here loved it. The only con is there will be no leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Pros: Easy Read More

I think that this is going to be great but it's taking WAY longer than 5 hours to cook. I would thin-slice potatoes and shallots. Just turned the crock pot up to high and hope to feed everyone before 7pm. Read More

Nice flavor I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs with the fat trimmed off. The flavors from the various veggies blended well with the white wine to make a nice flavored broth. I would put the sweet potatoes in maybe 2-3 hrs before done so they don't get to soft. Pros: Tender chicken nice blend of veggies very nice flavor. Cons: Sweet potatoes a little to soft Read More

Cut up veggies and chicken used skinless boneless chicken breast. Added rosemary basil and oregano. It seemed bland and needed something to counteract all the acid from the wine and vinegar. Read More
