Tips  

Chicken thighs are a great choice for slow cooking, as the dark meat stays moist and flavorful. Boneless skinless thighs are now readily available at most grocery stores. If you prefer, you can substitute boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Try whole grain penne or another whole grain pasta shape for added nutrition. Or instead of pasta, serve this chicken with garlic mashed potatoes.
