We love chicken thighs at our house and my favorite way of cooking them used to be in a slow cooker. Now it's a tie between that and braising, especially since braising is so much faster! This meal was a lot like my last batch of Wine-Braised Chicken except that I lightened it up by taking out the bacon. For some extra burst of flavor, I added some lemon zest and juice at the very end. What a wonderful and comforting meal on a rainy Sunday night!
