Slow Cooker Chicken and Apple Stew

Serves 6 to 8
Time 6 hr 15 min
This easy, hearty chicken stew is packed with fall flavors: apples, sweet potatoes and aromatic sage. Whole fennel seeds add depth to the stew and become mellow during slow cooking. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley just before serving.
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon whole fennel seeds
  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 firm, sweet baking apples, such as Braeburn or Gala peeled and cut into 6 wedges each
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (10 ounces each) cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 large sweet onion halved and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sliced fresh sage leaves
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method

Toast fennel seeds in a small skillet over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Cut chicken thighs in half. Add chicken, fennel seeds, apples, potatoes, onion, sage, salt and pepper to a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until chicken and apples are very tender, 6 to 7 hours, or 3 to 3 1/2 hours on high.
