Ingredients

  • chicken drumsticks (about 2 1/4 pounds), skinned
  • ½  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1  Tablespoon  olive oil
  • large onion
  • large red bell pepper
  • large celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • cloves garlic, minced
  • 14 1/2-ounce can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1  Cup  dry white wine
  • ¼  Teaspoon  red bell pepper flakes
  • ¼  Cup  chopped fresh basil
  • 2  Tablespoons  chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

Sprinkle the chicken with ¼ teaspoon of salt. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken, in batches, until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes per batch. Transfer the chicken to a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker.

Add the onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic to the skillet. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the vegetables, tomatoes, wine, pepper flakes, and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt to the slow cooker; mix well. Cover and cook until the chicken and vegetables are fork-tender, 4 to 5 hours on high or 8 to 10 hours on low. Stir in the basil and parsley.
