This is a super, old fashioned, great tasting chicken stew. I did it in my slow cooker. I could not get pearl onions so I cut up a sweet onion -it was a shame because they look so attractive in a stew but the flvour was still there. I put a layer of carrots on the bottom added the chicken, covering the chicken with the veggies and everything else. Cooked for 3 hours, removed chicken from the bone, returned it to the cooker, stirred and continued cooking for another 3 hours adding the slurry 1 hour before serving.. Cooked to perfection, Carrots and beans still had a bit of crunch. Thanks MikeKey this is a real saver.
