How to cook chicken thighs

Sear the chicken on the 450 degrees Sear setting (if using a multicooker), in several batches, at 1 minute on each side.

Or you can cook the meat on the stovetop.

Next add garlic and onions, for 1 minute, and then the sweet potatoes and mushrooms for 2 minutes, stirring while cooking; lightly add salt and pepper. I then switched the temperature to Saute mode {350 degrees} and added the white wine.

Do the same on stovetop, and add the white wine.

Ingredients

  • 3 lb skinless, boneless chicken thighs, fat trimmed
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Texas Style Brisket Rub, I used Rodelle. Use less if you like less spice! You can also use your favorite seasonsings or rub
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 8 oz. cremini mushrooms, left whole if small (or cut in half if large)
  • 2 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

Instructions

  • In a Ziploc bag, combine about 2 T. Texas style brisket rub; add 4-5 pieces of chicken at a time, lightly shaking. Place the chicken on a large plate. Repeat the process, adding more spices if needed, until all the chicken has been lightly coated.
  • In the KitchenAid Multicooker, heat the oil at the 450 degree temp SEAR setting. Or, cook on stovetop. Cook the chicken in batches, 4-5 pieces at a time, for 1 minute on each side. Transfer each batch to a plate and set aside. Repeat the process until all the chicken has been lightly cooked.
  • Add the garlic and onion to the Multicooker (or stovetop), stirring for about 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and sweet potatoes and stir another 2 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Gradually pour the wine over the vegetable mixture; bring to a boil. Turn the Multicooker to 350 SAUTE mode, cooking the vegetable mixture for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Or cook on stovetop.
  • Place the chicken on top of the vegetables and cover with a lid. Or, place the chicken in a slowcoooker, with the vegetables on top.
  • Change setting to: 1) LO SLOW COOKER and cook for 4 hours. 2) 350 SAUTE and cook for 45 minutes.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper if needed before serving. Serve hot!
