“Got this recipe from my SIL's cookbook, "Homemade in Half the Time" by Shea Waggoner. She made it first, but without the mushrooms because she hates them, and using chicken breasts & cooking wine, which made it sooo salty, but it was still good. So I made it, with mushrooms (baby bella, cuz cremini weren't available), skinless, boneless thighs and using Pinot Noir for the red wine. I was out of bacon, so made it without, and I used fresh minced garlic in place of the jarred. Sooooo good (and easy)!!! DH ate two big helpings and nearly licked the crock pot clean. ;)”
