  • Cook Time:


  • 1 pound sliced mushrooms (about 5 cups)
  • 2 large onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into 2-inch-long strips (about 2 cups)
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thigh
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1 1/2 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Chicken Stock
  • 1 jar (24 oz.) Prego® Traditional Italian Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 8 ounces uncooked linguine, broken in half
  • Directions

    1. Place the mushrooms, onion, pepper and garlic in a 6-quart slow cooker.
    2. Season the chicken as desired. Coat the chicken with the flour. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken in batches and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on all sides. Remove the chicken to the cooker.
    3. Add the wine to the skillet and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cook until the wine is reduced by half. Stir in the broth. Pour the wine mixture into the cooker. Add the sauce and Italian seasoning.
    4. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir the linguine into the cooker. Set the cooker to HIGH. Cover and cook for 30 minutes or until the linguine is tender.
