3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup flour
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 3.5 oz jar of capers drained
2 Tbsps dried parsley or 1/3 cup chopped fresh

Put the olive oil in a large skillet and heat over medium high heat.
Mix the flour with the salt and pepper. Unroll the boneless thighs, and and dredge them in the flour mixture.
Brown the chicken pieces in the olive oil. This doesn't take long as you don't need to cook them all the way through, just brown the outsides nicely, then remove them to the crock pot. Maybe 2 minutes a side, but it depends on how hot your pan is.
Combine the remaining ingredients and pour them over the chicken pieces.
Cook 4-6 hours on low.
If you wish, garnish the chicken with a little chopped fresh parsley when you serve.

Main Ingredient:

Chicken Thighs

I doubled the wine and lemon juice, and also added some brine from the capers. Did not salt the sauce, only the breasts before cooking. Also added 2 tbsp. butter to sauce before slow cooking.
